Pine Creek Canyon

Red Rock Canyon

Pine Creek Canyon is located between Bridge Mountain (6,460') and Rainbow Mountain (6,924') in Red Rock Canyon. It's named so for concentrations of ponderosa and pinyon pine trees found in and around the canyon. Pine Creek Canyon is thought to be a remnant biotic community from about 1M years ago when the Las Vegas valley was possibly covered in similar woodlands. Visitors will enjoy contrasting open desert and a lush riparian corridor on the Pine Creek Canyon Trail.
