Things to see in and around Red Rock Canyon

Because Red Rock National Conservation Area covers such a sizable swathe of desert, it's home to many natural attractions. The Calico Hills are one of the park's most famous sites, accessible via a moderate hiking trail. Spot old agave roasting pits from Native American history along the Calico Tanks Trail, while Willow Springs boasts petroglyphs. Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, adjacent to Red Rock Canyon, was once a working ranch owned by millionaire Howard Hughes.
