Red Rock Canyon, Nevada

Red Rock Canyon, Nevada

Welcome to REDROCK.ORG, the unofficial web site for Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (RRNCA). Located just a short drive west of the Las Vegas Strip, with its glittering hotels, world-class restaurants, and unmatched entertainment choices, Red Rock Canyon is an oasis in a neon desert.

Red Rock Canyon Activities

You can go horseback riding in the morning and have a Red Rock wedding in the afternoon; you can bring the family out for a picnic, and pet the wild burros that line the road just at feeding time.

The Red Rock Canyon area is, arguably, the most beautiful area in Nevada—perhaps the southwest. Whether you are a rock climber, a hiker, a rock hound, or just appreciate the beauty of wild horses, bighorn sheep, and wild burros roaming free, this part of Nevada is just for you. View a slide-show of some of the Canyon's natural wonders here, or enjoy some photos of Blue Diamond from the air courtesy of a local pilot.

There's also a hiking map of the Red Rock Loop.

A Living History

The private residential communities of Blue Diamond and Calico Basin are located within Red Rock's boundaries, as well as Spring Mountain Ranch and Bonnie Springs Ranch.

Blue Diamond, NV A Company Town

Blue Diamond is a unique community. A former "company town," it was owned by the Blue Diamond Mine, which allowed only employees to live in its houses. A brief history, including some photographs from the 1940s, can be found here.
