Red Rock Canyon State Park is 25 miles northeast of Mojave on Highway 14. While traveling on Highway 14, motorist pass through the scenic cliffs although a beautiful view while speeding by, to appreciate the natural beauty one must stop.
A quick turn off the road and ample parking awaits for travelers to stretch their legs and take in the views. Break out a camera and get some beautiful images to share with others of the desert scenes. The park is open sunrise to sunset for Day-Use and a Visitor Center is open during the weekends.
Looking for a longer excursion? Guided nature hikes are offered on Sunday mornings at 9 am during the spring and fall, as well as campfire programs on Saturday evenings at 7 pm. The park offers miles of trails to experience the natural desert landscape. This spring should offer plenty of beautiful wild flowers. Please be sure not to destroy the fragile desert plant and animal life, so that future generations will be able to enjoy the same spectacular presentation. When traveling anywhere in the desert, also be sure to bring plenty of water!
