Red Rock Canyon State Park
Red Rock Canyon State Park is one of California's most unique desert environments and offers a range of activities and facilities to help visitors explore its diverse natural, historic, and cultural resources. The Park's colorful collage of cliffs, the drainage of Last Chance Canyon, the sheer precipices of Hagen Canyon, and the narrow washes of Scenic Canyon and Nightmare Gulch create a unique desert environment. Red Rock Canyon State Park is one of the best locations to star gaze in Southern California. Red Rock Canyon State Park was considered to become part of the State Park System in 1930. Since then, it has grown significantly, now encompassing 27,000 acres of desert landscape.
