Hiking in Red Rock is always fun (at least before the summer heat arrives). A lot of people do rock climbing, but the only part that looks like fun is rappelling down. Too much work getting up there. I like what they do on Amazing Race – you take an elevator to the top of a building and rappel down. That I would do!
Despite being in a desert, you can find water (and trees) if you know which trail to take.
You can even find a 15 foot waterfall. Okay, I have to confess, RJ took this picture. The climb out onto that rock to get the shot looked a little dangerous with my balance issues.
If you get to Las Vegas, this is a beautiful park to drive through and enjoy and it’s just a couple miles outside the city. No hiking (or rock climbing) is necessary to see the beauty of this park.
