The Basics

Red Rock Canyon, with its large formations of red rocks and ample outdoor activities, sits a world away from Las Vegas, despite being visible from the city. Rock climbers come to conquer the 3,000-foot (914-meter) red sandstone walls of Keystone Thrust, while mountain bikers find optimal conditions on the Mustang Trail. Some of the best views of the American Southwest landscape come from the Red Rock Canyon Overlook, a 13-mile scenic loop through the park that gives visitors a look at the Mojave Desert scenery from the comfort of a car or bicycle. Tour options are plentiful—horseback rides, guided hikes, electric bike rides, Segway, and scooter tours, or even a romantic hot air balloon ride.

Scooter Car Tour of Red Rock Canyon with Transport from Las Vegas
What a fun adventure in the Red Rock canyon! Thanks to Leo and Johnny for making it a really enjoyable outing for us and not getting irritated at having to show us how to set/release the parking brake nearly every time! They give you a comprehensive safety talk before the tour as well. Be prepared to drive on city streets to and from the canyon. My first time in a scooter car and it was a blast. It was scenic and beautiful through the canyon. Also thanks for the cold water!

Red Rock Canyon and Seven Magic Mountains Tour with Ghost Town option
This tour was really fun! Despite the fact that Marvin came late to pick us up, he made the whole experience really memorable. He made us laugh during the car rides and he was always willing to take pictures of us! I didn’t expect to climb Red Rock Canyon, but he was very helpful and made sure we were okay. It was a fun surprise! And he provided lots and lots of bottles of water. Thank you, Marvin!! You take awesome panoramics :)

Red Rock Canyon Wedding by Private Limousine
Our special day was incredible. Red Rock Canyon was breathtaking and the most beautiful venue that we could have had. The minister, photographer and the limo driver were all wonderful!! The staff at the chapel were a lot of help. Our package came with flowers, champagne and a cake. This experience was worth every penny. I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different for their wedding!

Things to See In and Around Red Rock Canyon

Because the Red Rock National Conservation Area covers such a sizable swathe of desert, it's home to many worthy natural attractions. The Calico Hills are one of the park's most famous sites, accessible via a moderate hiking trail. Visitors will find old agave roasting pits from Native American history along the Calico Tanks Trail, while Willow Springs boasts petroglyphs. Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, situated adjacent to Red Rock Canyon, was once a working ranch owned by millionaire Howard Hughes.
