Franko's Red Rock Canyon Adventure Guide
Located just 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip, Red Rock Canyon was Nevada's first National Conservation Area. Red Rock Canyon offers a 13-mile scenic drive, 30+ miles of trails, picnic areas, world-class rock climbing, and a visitors center with interpretive exhibits and a bookstore. The area has extraordinary geologic features, plus superb examples of Mojave Desert flora and fauna. In 1990 the status of Red Rock Recreation "Lands" was upgraded to "National Conservation Area" (NCA), the seventh to be designated in the U.S.A. Over 1 million people per year enjoy Red Rock Canyon's spectacular desert landscape, climbing, hiking, and biking, plus interpretive programs sponsored by the Bureau of Land Management.
