News

RED ROCK CANYON NATIONAL CONSERVATION AREA, Nev. -- Rangers are now charging a $3 fee to bicyclists and pedestrians entering the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area outside Las Vegas.

The federal Bureau of Land Management says it'll dedicate one entry lane Saturday at the 13-mile scenic loop gate for hikers and bikers for the fee increase.

Commercial tour buses will pay $5 per person, up from $2 per person. Motorcycle entry will be $3, up from $2. Vehicle day passes are now $7, up from $5. Annual passes are now $30.

For the first time, reservations for a Red Spring area group picnic site will be available for $40. The BLM says it's the first fee increase in 10 years at the scenic preserve about 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.
