The Basics

Red Rock Canyon, with its large formations of red rocks and ample outdoor activities, sits a world away from Las Vegas, despite being visible from the city. Rock climbers come to conquer the 3,000-foot (914-meter) red sandstone walls of Keystone Thrust, while mountain bikers find optimal conditions on the Mustang Trail. Some of the best views of the American Southwest landscape come from the Red Rock Canyon Overlook, a 13-mile scenic loop through the park that gives visitors a look at the Mojave Desert scenery from the comfort of a car or bicycle. Tour options are plentiful—horseback rides, guided hikes, electric bike rides, Segway, and scooter tours, or even a romantic hot air balloon ride.

Great way to spend some time away from the strip!
From pickup to drop off this tour was completely worth it! Was refreshing to get away from the strip for a little bit and take in some amazing views with some great people. Our tour guides Scooter Steve and Cautious Clay had so much knowledge and made the tour very enjoyable. Would 100% recommend!

Red Rock Canyon Electric Bike Half-Day Tour
While the beauty of the Red Rock Canyon was the highlight, we also learned of the geological history and the local history of the area. John and Allison presented an amazing tour. The ebikes were sooooo fun. My wife and I are over 60. The bikes were user friendly and the focus on safety was appreciated. If you get a chance try this tour. You won’t regret it.
The BEST tour experience!

Scooter Tours of Red Rock Canyon
What an amazing trip! Steve and Clay were our hosts and the entire experience could not have been better. We were picked up on time and it was a short ride to the canyon. Safety is a great concern and they take their time to teach you how to ride the Scooter. If you can ride a bike you can ride the Scooter. Red Rock Canyon is beautiful, and this was the BEST way to discover it. Water was provided and the Scooters have storage for your belongings.
Great sunset tour!!

Small Group Red Rock Canyon Sunset Tour Optional 7 Magic Mountains
We had a great time on our tour. Ruben was our driver. He picked us up promptly at our resort and took us to our first stop, 7 Magic Mountains. Such a colorful display! We then headed to Red Rock Canyon and visited the various view points along the route. I was impressed with the beauty of the area. I definitely recommend this tour.
Fun way to see Red Rock

Red Rock Canyon Hiking Tour
Thanks, Chris, for the wonderful morning hiking in Red Rock Canyon! Chris promptly picked me up and drove me and two other gentlemen to the canyon (less than 30 minutes away). We got to choose from 3 hikes and he led the way. It was an easy hike with spectacular views. Thanks! The convenience of having someone pick you up, lead you on a guided hike, educate you on the area and other fun tidbits, and then drive you right back to your hotel made things simple and was very appreciated.
So glad we did this!

Red Rock Canyon, 7 Magic Mountains, Boulder City and Hoover Dam Tour
We both were so glad we did it and felt like it was worth every penny and more. Matthew is an amazing tour guide. With my inquisitive mind, I ask a ton of questions. He answered them all enthusiastically and only had to admit he didn’t know a few times. The sights are gorgeous, and you’re missing out if you don’t take the time to see Red Rock Canyon while you’re here. Obviously, the Hoover Dam is a must see as well. Book it! You won’t regret it.

Things to See In and Around Red Rock Canyon

Because the Red Rock National Conservation Area covers such a sizable swathe of desert, it's home to many worthy natural attractions. The Calico Hills are one of the park's most famous sites, accessible via a moderate hiking trail. Visitors will find old agave roasting pits from Native American history along the Calico Tanks Trail, while Willow Springs boasts petroglyphs. Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, situated adjacent to Red Rock Canyon, was once a working ranch owned by millionaire Howard Hughes.
