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..

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.

Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
#15 of 64 Nature & Parks in Las Vegas
Our guide, Tammie was brilliant a true asset, she took us on a behind the scenes tour of the dolphin area giving us so much information on the dolphins and the research and work that is carried out at the park.
As a docent at Lincoln Park and Cleveland zoos I am familiar with enrichment and am pleased to see that the program includes such needed stimulus to help the cats have some impetus to act with enjoyment.
