Great hike in Red Rock canyon. Not a lot of foot traffic so you can go at your own pace. The Park Service also offers free Ranger led hikes too. Give it a try.

We hiked in Ice Box Canyon area of Red Rock Canyon. We did just part of the trail as it was hot out (Mid August). We did this one as it was partially shaded.

While visiting Red Rock Canyon, one of the gals at the visitor center recommended this hike because you're in the middle of the canyon, where even GPS can't reach you. My husband and I had only hiked a few times before, so this was a...More

This is one of our favorite hikes in Red Rock Canyon as it always cooler than the rest of the canyon. It's a moderate hike that starts out flat and easy and then you start doing some boulder scrambling and a little climbing. Since there...More
