The byway is the Scenic Loop Drive at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, 12 miles west of Las Vegas off State Route 159. The one-way scenic drive is completely paved and features self-guided trails, picnic areas and vista pullouts. The Visitor Center has audio programs and scheduled interpretive activities about the natural history of the canyon. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is a fee demonstration project area. A fee of $5 per vehicle is collected at the entrance to the Scenic Loop Drive. All of the money collected remains at the site for improvements.
