There are dozens of hiking trails, great cycling routes in and out of the park, all levels of climbing opportunities and plenty of extras such as petroglyphs, bighorn sheep and a host of Mohave flora and fauna.
We really enjoyed visit to Red Rock Canyon.. short drive from the strip takes your senses to completely different place - majestic mother nature, gorgeous colors, fun trails, photo ops to die for..

Lehman Caves Great Basin National Park
The caves are beautiful and the Park Ranger that gave our tour was very knowledgeable of all the history and stories of the area.
This ix the one thing you must do if you are in Great Basin National Park - the tours are guided by the park rangers and and there is a $10 entry fee, but the small cost is well worth it.
Sand Harbor Incline Village
We enjoyed walking the 'trail' (boardwalk) around the park to read about geology, wildlife, etc. Beautiful views of the lake.
For $10 admission to park it was Breathtaking & Beautiful!

The Springs Preserve is a great to explore the valley's history through interactive science and nature exhibits, a botanical garden, hiking, trails, and live animal shows.

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park Blue Diamond
I lived in Las Vegas for many years and visited Spring Mountain Ranch many times as it was a great way to get away from the city, but was pleasantly surprised at how much the state park has renovated the ranch.
Sheltered past the Red Rock Canyon National Park, this State Park (like many of Nevada’s State Parks) is almost a hidden gem.

Cathedral Gorge State Park Panaca
This is a beautiful place with several spots to stop and get out to physically walk on the landscape (as opposed to several parks which limit that) the formations are magnificent and the kids loved exploring.
It is amazing what Mother Nature can do and transform this 1600 acre of what used to be a huge lake before into a structure of art!

Lamoille Canyon Lamoille
Most of the time you are well away from the creek but the nature trail offers creek access as does the road to the Lions Club / Boy Scout camp.
What we did not know, is when you get to the spot on the drive where you turn around to go back, you can park, and there are a number of hikes you can take.
The Park Las Vegas
The park has been added and is an enjoyable place to sit on benches in the shade and get away from all the craziness of the strip.The cascading water cools you off and is just neat to feel.
Beautiful statues and trees surround the park with a lit up waterfall you walk through which is a true work of art.
