Written Directions

Just west of Las Vegas and connected to the Red Rock Ramble on Highway 159 https://www.motorcycleroads.com/motorcycle-roads/nevada/red-rock-ramble this National Park is scenic and the easternmost part of the Mojave Desert

Scenery

The conservation area showcases a set of large red rock formations: a set of sandstone peaks and walls called the Keystone Thrust. The walls are up to 3,000 feet (910 m) high, making them a popular hiking and rock climbing destination. The highest point is La Madre Mountain, at 8,154 feet (2,485 m). A one-way loop road, 13 miles (21 km) long, provides vehicle access to many of the features in the area. Several side roads and parking areas allow access to many of the area trails. A visitor center is at the start of the loop road. The loop road is also popular for bicycle touring; it begins with a moderate climb, then is mostly downhill or flat.

Drive Enjoyment

Smooth well maintained roads, and some minor twisties make this a very scenic and enjoyable ride

Tourism Opportunities

Red Rock Canyon features a one-way 13-mile scenic drive, hiking and trails, plants and wildlife, geology, camping, cultural resources and much more. There are 26 numbered hikes and trails on their website.
