Can You See Red Rock Canyon?

From this perspective it’s not possible. In the photos, roughly left and down a bit of centre is about where the canyon actually is. To get to it, you must pay Uncle Sam the entry fee since this area is under the jurisdiction of the BLM. I forget how much it is, I used to have a yearly pass too…

The entire twelve mile, one way only road was repaved a couple years or so ago so it’s a nice ride with wonderful views. Along your way you’ll know when you get to the canyon, trust me. It’s a huge gash in Earth’s skin! If you have the time when visiting Las Vegas, head out there, it’s worth the time.

Just take Charleston Boulevard west and you’ll drive right to the park entrance. 🌵🌴

  2. The view from that rest area is fabulous as well. I often drove out there after work, and walked around. It is extraordinary.
