  • I had a phenomenal time at Red Rock Canyon. I've never seen scenery like this and this was a great introduction to it. We did several hikes but enjoyed the Calico Hills and Calico Tanks hikes the most. The Calico Tanks hike was definitely moderate level and all of the light scrambling made it engaging and enjoyable. The payout at the top of the hike is incredible as well. You get a beautiful panoramic view of Red Rock Canyon and the valley. The view of the Strip from this angle was well worth the challenging hike. The scenic drive around the canyon was beyond enjoyable and this was a day well spent and a great escape from the Strip.
  • It’s a breathtaking scenic drive, surrounded by mountains. It’s so calm and serene. The scenic drive is a must , if you are interested to overcome, mini roller coaster. The drive has lots of loops and bends. But it’s definitely awesome and with lots of pits stops, to take many pictures. Just saw one red rock canyon. Take a drive during sunset 🌅. It’s just wow!! ❤️The ride is definitely romantic, if you are a lover of nature..!😍
