Retrace historic footsteps along Old Spanish Trail

Travelers along some of Nevada’s major highways follow the historic footsteps of centuries-old trails. Head north into Utah on Interstate 15, or west into Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and over the mountains into Pahrump Valley, and you retrace part of the Old Spanish Trail, the oldest transportation corridor in the state.

Red Rock Canyon a popular destination for locals and world travelers

Beautiful Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area provides scenic splendor and wide-ranging recreational opportunities just beyond the urbanized area of Las Vegas. Little wonder it attracts more than a million visitors annually. Though many visitors are locals who frequently return, many others come from across the country or around the world.
