Hiking And Camping In Red Rock Canyon State Park, CA
Red Rock Canyon State Park is an underrated and largely unknown park in Southern California.
Just 2 hours north of Los Angeles, this gorgeous park is full of amazing scenery.
The rock formations look like they'd be more at home in Utah rather than California!
This Mojave Desert park offers stunning and rugged hikes...
...as well as incredible views of the red-drenched mountains.
If you visit in Spring, you'll be surprised by beautiful wildflowers in the desert.
And if you visit in summer, you'll need a hat, sunscreen, and lots of water.
With secret passageways and minimal visitors, you'll have a blast exploring the park in peace.
And the views just keep getting better as you hike the trails.
Easy Hike: The Red Cliffs Trail. A 1 mile loop with beautiful views.
Moderate Hike: Opal Canyon. Though flat, this trail is over 8 miles out and back. Watch for vehicles as it's also a driving trail.
50 Camping spaces are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and cost $25 per vehicle.
Dogs (on leash) and horses are allowed on the trails.
