A 25 mile scenic drive from the Hampton Inn Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas will put you in the heart of Red Rock Canyon. Red Rock offers desert beauty, towering red cliffs, cascading waterfalls and abundant wildlife with awe-inspiring views you wouldn’t expect to see near a major metropolitan city. The mountains in the Red Rock area were formed by a number of geological forces that have resulted in some cliffs reaching up to an astounding 3,000 feet. Red Rock is open year-round and a favorite among many tourists, rock climbers, sightseers, joggers, hikers and even horseback riding enthusiasts. Red Rock Canyon is also a popular, one of a kind location for weddings.
The picturesque drive exposes the geological history and splendor of the canyon. Red Rock Canyon visitors can take in the vibrant, crimson color of the canyon and the magnificent contrast between the grey limestone and red sandstone. The location also displays the Native American pictographs, artwork and fire pits, giving you an idea of how native people lived. This amazing conservation area is also home to about 200 different mammals which include burros, rabbits, coyotes, bighorn sheep, red tailed hawks, golden eagles, hummingbirds and even a few wild horses, bobcats and mountain lions. If you’re lucky, you might get a peek at Mojave Max, the desert tortoise. Be sure to visit the Red Rock Canyon Visitor Center to learn more.
