    Getting to some of the points on the map outside the scenic loop requires driving down narrow, bumpy, unpaved roads. We took this to White Rock and it wasn't worth it. Stay on the paved roads.

    Watch for tortoises on the road, and for lizards and bikers, too!

    There's a platform outside the Visitor Center in Discovery Plaza where you can get a great view of the Calico Hills.

    Use the EZH2O machine at the restrooms by the parking lot to refill your bottles with cool, filtered water. Or buy something to drink from the nearby vending machines.

    There are two sets of restrooms. These near the parking lot and others right outside the Visitor Center.

    Watch for this sign along State Route 159. When you see it you've still got several miles to go.

    Beautiful red rock hiking trails and rock scrambling just :30 from Las Vegas. A highly recommended breath of fresh air after a night on the strip.

    Nice trails and great for dogs. Download an offline map app beforehand. No cell or data service. Go early to beat the heat.

    Approximately half an hour drive from the Strip. Stunning views driving on the one way loop with many places to stop and get out to hike or enjoy the scenery. The geological formations are awesome.

    The whole trip from a Strip hotel to the canyon and back with several stops for walking/ pictures etc takes under 3 hours without being rushed.

    Stunning. Great introductory outdoor museum & lots of great stop off points for photo taking. It gets busy at weekends when sky is clear or interesting. Well worth the short trip to visit!

    Go into the visiting center to see the taxidermy, and cave paintings. Plus: do the scenic drive before 9 AM.Don't do anything dumb like jump on the edge of a cliff just for a cool photo.

    If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, this is a must see! Bring the kids for a family adventure - BUT don’t let the sun hinder your views. Wear your sunglasses to protect your eyes from the harmful UV.
