Day trip to Red Rock Canyon National Park
Easily recognised by its a-thousand-metre-high walls of red, pink and cream Aztec sandstone, Red Rock Canyon is located just a few kilometres west of Las Vegas. The rock formations are about 190 million years old, encompassing 196,000 acres of the Mojave Desert, and as a result are an area of particular geologic interest.
Day passes can be purchased at the park’s entrance and visitors are invited to hike, bike or drive across the multitude of trails and routes. Although hidden away from Las Vegas, you’ll find plenty of exciting excursions from Sin City to this prehistoric playground. For the ultimate experience, indulge in a hot air balloon ride over the canyon or complete your visit with an adrenaline-filled skydive.
