Trail Overview

The Iron Canyon Scenic Trail is an easy-going dirt trail that winds its way around the Red Cliffs of Red Rock Canyon State Park. It's very easy-going as there are no major obstacles to worry about aside from a couple of minor hill climbs. The views are beautiful throughout the trail as you come in close proximity to the tall Cliffside's. There are fences all along the trail that prohibit foot travel due to the preservation of the birds of prey in the area, so please tread lightly and do not cross boundaries.


90% of the trail is flat dirt roads and sand that can be easily traversed in 2WD. However there are minor hill climbs that 4WD/AWD may be necessary if it is wet or raining.
