Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

Primarily sandstone boulders just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Getting There

Red Rock Canyon is located about 15 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. From the Strip and Downtown Las Vegas, Calico Basin Road can be approached from Charleston Boulevard, which will turn into SR 159. Or from the south, take Blue Diamond Rd/SR 160 west to the Junction with Route 159. Follow SR 159 until you see the entrance signs.

On Calico Basin Road:
    - Follow the road North, then West until it reaches a 90-degree turn.
    - Follow the road and turn North to see a wired-off gravel parking lot, facing the Red Springs recreation area. You may park here if desired.
    - To continue to Kraft Mountain boulders, continue taking the road North until you reach a cul-de-sac and a parking lot to the West.
    - You may park in this parking lot to get to Kraft Boulders, etc.

Please obey all parking signs. Fines for illegal parking are a hefty $275!
