Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is one of my favorite places around Las Vegas. There are a number of wonderful trails amongst the red, gray and white rocks. I have hiked there before, but certainly I don’t mind hiking there again.
Calico Hills Trail is about 3 miles (one way). It is one of the most colorful trails along the 13 miles Red Rock Canyon Scenic Drive.
