Nice hiking trails with easy access, benches to rest at and an up-close view of the landscape. We really enjoyed the easy walk to view the landscape. We even got to see some of the wildlife: deer and birds. Well worth seeing.

We actually just stopped in here early one morning as we were too early for where we were going for the day. We parked and walked about 45 minutes. We practically had the place to ourselves. Nice views and trails.

My Hiking buddy and I trekked multiple loops thru out the Canyon and were not disappointed. It is a well maintained public park that charges no fees , stunning vistas and an easy drive from most resorsts and hotels.

Red Rock Canyon is a long, straight canyon that, amazingly enough, is surrounded by sheer walls of red rock. It is especially interesting that this canyon was originally a quarry. There is a section on the right side about half a mile in, that clearly...More

Sorry, too early. Mid summer might be good provided we have rain.
