Sloan canyon and the petroglyphs are not in red rock canyon. Map doesn't match name. Its south of vegas down near far southern airport and hills. more »
It’s nice having a little bit of natural splendor close to home. Always nice people on the trails. Went for a bike ride on the bike path one night and even found some people stargazing right by the visitor’s center. I appreciate this part of the world
Making it to the top was the highlight of the hike when it's dark and all you see is the glowing lights of Vegas. One of the best night hikes I had ever done and one of the longest ones as well with the trip up being almost 3 hours and then 30 minutes on top and then about 2 hours down.
