It is a beautiful place to visit. Avoid holidays if you can as it now becomes very busy. I have not walked the trails for a while but if you have the time and energy they are well worth it.

It is an incredible national park, with a very beautiful and stunning landscape, very close to Las Vegas city. It is very worthy to visit, facilites are gorgeus, there are bathrooms all over, a nice paved road, trails and climbing areas and many more things.

This area is wonderful and unique, a true treasure on the outskirts of Vegas. The geology and wildlife is superb and the visitor center area is worth the visit.
