Contrasting the busy nearby Las Vegas, Red Rocks (as the locals know it) is a refuge of wilderness. Indeed, it draws plenty of bikers, climbers, and hikers. The preserve’s sandstone features are reminiscent of Zion National Park’s domes and temples, while remaining classically Mojave-esque in flora. With miles of trails and climbing routes – this is the perfect place to explore something new.

  • Winter | Spring | Fall – The Mojave desert is very hot in the warmer months. This means summer is typically scorching. We recommend visiting early spring/late fall, as winter sometimes brings snow (although it is lovely!).

Considerations

  • Plan for both extremes of temperature: deserts are warm during the day, but do not hold heat well without the sun’s warming infrared.
  • This area begs exploring – which is why it’s so popular for climbers, cyclists, and hikers. Get out and join them!
  • Make this part of your tour! Stop by as you travel through Vegas, or spend a night or two.
