  • 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.
