I have been spending forever going through all the pictures posted on here.
Where is Red Rock where the casino is? It's really beautiful with the red rock as a backdrop. Summerlin looks really nice with some nice mature greenery.

Also. How far Aliante from Summerlin?

Very far, depending on what part of Summerlin, 25-30 minutes at normal traffic times. There is not a direct route to take which makes it take longer than similar distances would be.

The casino is at Charleston and 215. The park entrance is several miles west of there.

I don't think you can really see Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area from The Red Rock Casino, but I've never been up in the highest rooms. You can see the red rocks of this side of Calico Canyon. The casino and the canyon have nothing to do with each other except the casino is along the traditional route to get to the canyon, and further along Charleston Bl. past the casino, you start seeing the red sandstone of the backside of Calico Canyon, a small, rural, residential area near Red Rock Cyn that should have never been allowed.

LVPoker is correct. Just take Charleston all the way west. Cant miss it. And if you keep going past Red Rock you will run into Bonne Springs Ranch. Thats where myself and the family spent most of the day today. Did some horse back riding, animal petting, train riding and sight seeing.

Couple of cell phone pics.

I thought the Red Rock Casino was a lot closer based on the pictures on the hotel's website. It makes it look like the rocks are right outside the window. It wasn't until I drove out there that I realized the hotel is nowhere even close to having those views.

You have to get on the loop road to see the main red rock area as it is facing west. You can see some red from west Vegas but the main red rock face is hidden from Vegas.

I was just out there my last trip to Vegas.

$7 to do the loop road of 13 miles.

The loop road is for tourists who can't be bothered to get out of their cars and really "see" the canyon.

The $7 is for anyone who wishes to man-up and hike the 19 major trails, in nearly 200,000 acres of wilderness; camp, picnic, do a world class rock climb, take a really difficult bike ride, take pictures, get lost, see wildlife, etc., etc. Red Rock Canyon Recreation


"Parks are for people" is the public-relations slogan, which decoded means that the parks are for people-in-automobiles. Edward Abbey, author of Desert Solitaire, and many other great works.

Went for the first time since we've been here yesterday. (shame on me I know! lol) Got the annual pass for $30. Was a pretty bummed couldn't do much hiking cause I brought my almost 2 year old with us. Hopefully when my partner gets home I can take the older girls and "get lost" on some trails!

I drove a $100,000 car to get some cool pictures so hiking was not in the plans that time, but I do plan to buy a mountain bike once I own a condo in Vegas ( soon - short sale close to closing ) and go back out there and do some hiking and biking out there. off season when it is 60-70 degrees...... winter months.

The annual passes are great, although I usually opt for the $80 pass that is good for all the national parks rather than the $30 pass for any one park (Red Rock, Lake Mead, Bryce Canyon, etc.).
