Did you know Red Rock dates back 180 million years during the Jurassic era? Red Rock was once covered by the sea that receded over time and turned into sand dunes, and eventually mountains and canyons. At Red Rock, you can immerse yourself in nature, hike canyons and climb cliffs. Red Rock is also a photographers dream. There is so much natural beauty at Red Rock you can explore and discover.
