Red Rock Canyon State Park Network Story Map Tool

State Parks has developed the Red Rock Canyon State Park Route Network Story Map as a tool to help guide the general plan process. This tool depicts the existing route network and depicts how the route network has changed since 1994, when 20,500 acres of California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA) lands were transferred through the California Desert Protection Act. It also depicts how the route network has changed as a result of resource management actions.
