Las Vegas – Red Rock Canyon is managed by the Bureau of Land Management and, therefore, does not participate in the fee-free week during the U.S. National Park Service’s National Park Week April 21 through April 29, 2012.
In conjunction with other agencies within the Department of the Interior, the BLM will waive recreation-related fees for visitors to the National System of Public Lands—including Red Rock Canyon—on several days in 2012: Get Outdoors Day (June 9), National Public Lands Day (September 29) and Veteran’s Day weekend (November 10 to 12).
The scenic drive day pass for cars is $7, while motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians are charged $3. A Red Rock annual pass is $30. Fees at Red Rock Canyon are used on-site to provide for public enjoyment and visitor experience, enhance recreational opportunities and protect Red Rock resources.
Red Rock Canyon features a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, gold-certified visitor center, a scenic drive, miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, road biking, picnic areas and nature observing opportunities.
