    This is a beautiful place. So different from what I’m used to. A nice scenic 1 way drive with lots of pullouts and wide enough you can let others pass. It looks like a perfect hiking area bit at 43+ temps was far too hot for us to hike. We did do a brief walk to the petroglyphs and enjoyed a quick walk. We rented a car from the Flamingo hotel on Vegas strip and drove out. Perfect morning activity to do. Highly recommend.

    I don’t know why this isn’t listed as a top activity in Las Vegas. It is very well run, the staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and all seem to really enjoy being there. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. I learned so much while having a great time. Fabulous for kids as they learn through fun activities as well. If you are a local I definitely recommend the memberships as they are very reasonable. I recommend a hat and sunscreen.

    Had a blast in this area! Flamingos are my favorite animal because I always joke with my family and friends that flamingos mean vacation! 😁 Enjoyed seeing the different birds and animals. I have read though that there used to be way more animals during its “hey day”, and I do agree there’s some areas that felt a little bare and empty, but still a very peaceful, beautiful area with some cool birds!

    Went for a 5km morning run. Fantastic place to get away from the bustling city. I recommend this place to go for a walk or run. There were runners, walkers, people of all ages and a nice playground area for children. Also a great place for them to experience nature and wildlife. Regarding a recent review about suspicious men...this has nothing to do with the park itself and could happen anywhere. Also why didn't she call the police if it was that bad. I suspect great exaggeration.

    My mom, my siblings and I were looking around for a reasonable place to see animals and stuff and we came across this beautiful place on the internet and it looked really cool , especially from reading all the reviews. As soon as we walked in the sanctuary it was nothing but absolutely amazing. The kids had a wonderful time. And they of course enjoyed the animals. There was seven of us kids from the ages of 3 months old to 21 yrs old, including my mom definitely enjoyed ourselves. And the weather was perfect and There's picnic areas where you can take your food in and just have the chickens running around you. Just absolutely amazing !!! HIGHLY RECCOMEDED

    The Calico Hills section offers some of the most stunning scenery in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. You will arrive in this section not long after starting the 13-mile one way road through the area. The vibrant colors of the rock formations are really beautiful. The best way to experience is to take the Calico Tanks Trail. However, this is a moderately strenuous hike with some rock scrambling in parts and some elevation change but the rewards were very much worth the effort. Make sure you have hiking shoes and bring a hat and plenty of water. I would also start as early as possible in the morning to avoid the mid-day sun. There is no shade on the hike.

    this is one of the point in the scenic drive, the first point is Calico I, the second point is Calico II, there are parking lots in both points, you can view the red rock at these 2 points, I post some photos here for you to take a look, so you have an idea what you will see in these points
