Hiking in Vegas

Yep, you can hike in Las Vegas. Red Rock Canyon is only a short drive from the bustling Strip, and it’s actually the perfect place to go if you need a break from the festive and euphoric sounds. For a quick fix of peace, choose the Calico Tanks Trail. It’s a great 2-3 hours hike. The trail is rated moderate with some scrambling over and around boulders. You’ll hike through a colorful landscape of jumbled sandstone, and you’ll pass a hidden water pocket and several unique geologic features. At the end of the trail, your treat is the super cool view of Las Vegas Valley. On your way back, think of the huge evening buffet that awaits you at the hotel. It’ll keep up your pace.
