The Red Rock National
Conservation Area is a ruby jewel located in the western
part of Las Vegas. It is easily toured by car but you
will want to stop and enjoy a short hike to the vibrant
rocks, ancient pictographs, and desert springs. There is
a educational Visitor Center, and picturesque picnic
areas for your lunch or snacks. Enjoy the abundance of
desert plants and amazing flowers in spring. This park
is just a half hour drive west from the las Vegas strip.
Tour the Park's Scenic Loop but don't miss the
Calico entrance a half mile before the Park's stone
monument which has a wonderful picnic area.
