Red Rock Canyon is located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip on Charleston Boulevard/State Route 159.

Their Visitor Center offers information and interpretation about recreation opportunities which will include a map of the area and trails! So, get out and see a different side of Las Vegas! Here are some things to keep in mind if you decide to take a hike there.
Clothing and shoes! Always wear UV protected clothing and shoes that can handle the rough Nevadan terrain.
Make sure to always bring plenty of water especially in the summertime. We suggest using a hydration backpack.
Always check the weather in the area, some trails in Nevada can be come flooded very quickly especially during our monsoon season between June and September. Also, keep in mind the temperature as well. Most trails do not have any shade coverage and areas can be as hot as 115 degrees!
Check the trail difficulties! Always think about who you are going hiking with and everyone’s capabilities. Red Rock Canyon has a variety of trails from beginner to expert. Don't forget to stay on the trail! Here in Nevada we take pride in preserving our Desert and wildlife! Plus, you don’t want to get lost!
