Red Rock is the most popular destination for locals looking for weekend recreation. If you fly into Las Vegas, pick up a rental car and head west on Highway 215 to Charleston Street, the northern entrance to the loop road into Red Rock Canyon. Or you can take Blue Diamond Road heading west to enter the canyon on the Isouth end of the loop. The Red Rock Canyon loop road follows the base of a mountain range that is one of the most dramatic backdrops for any city in America. It is filled with trails and a scenic loop road that climbs into deep canyons along the Sandstone Bluffs.
