Red Rock scenic loop reopened after reaching capacity

Red Rock National Conservation Area’s scenic loop has reopened Saturday afternoon, about three hours after reaching its maximum capacity.

The 13-mile drive was allowing visitors in again as of 2 p.m., although the canyon was “still pretty crowded,” park officials announced on Twitter. The loop began turning away visitors around 11:15 a.m.

“Pack your water and patience!” the tweet stated.

The loop is open this month from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
