Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Scenic Drive Timed Entry

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

In marked contrast to a city geared to entertainment and gaming, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (RRCNCA) is known as the premier outdoor recreation experience offering enticements of a different nature including a 13-mile scenic drive, miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, and picnic areas and many other outdoor recreation opportunities just minutes away from the brightly-lit and bustling Las Vegas Strip. RRCNCA is approximately 198,000 acres and located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip on Charleston Boulevard/State Route 159. The area is visited by more than three million visitors each year. 

The Scenic Drive, a 13 mile-one-way paved road, provides access to explore the many special canyons and sandstone hills in the heart of the Conservation Area. There are 12 different trailheads and parking areas to begin your next outdoor adventure. The world class visitor center at the beginning of the drive provides a great introduction to the unique natural and cultural history of this area along with safety and orientation information. From the parking locations there are 21 different trails to explore the peak tops, rolling sandstone ridges, steep walled canyons which highlight special wildlife, vegetation, and cultural history. 

RRCNCA will implement a timed entry reservation system in order to meet the CDC, state and local guidance related to COVID-19. Each vehicle entering the Conservation Area will need a reservation.
