On Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 28, 2019), the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Scenic Drive will be open with reduced hours from 6AM to 12PM. The entrance gates will close at 12PM. The Visitor Center will close early as well and will be open from 8AM to 12PM.
The regular operating hours for the Scenic Drive (6AM to 5PM) and the Visitor Center (8:00AM to 4:30PM) will be in effect for the days before and after Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday weekend.
This is our busiest time of the year so plan to visit during early morning hours (before 10AM) to avoid long lines, parking congestion, and temporary closures along the Scenic Drive. To ensure a high-quality visitor experience and to allow access for emergency vehicles (if needed), the Scenic Drive at Red Rock Canyon may be temporarily closed during periods of high visitation. Road signs will be posted along State Route 159 if/when the Scenic Drive is closed. Visitors may call (702) 515-5350 to check if the Scenic Drive is open.
Come prepared by dressing in layers and bringing plenty of water. Red Rock Canyon’s weather forecast can be found here.
Please travel and recreate safely & enjoy your public lands!
