Red Rock to waive fee on Presidents Day

With sunny skies in the forecast for Presidents Day, Monday could be the perfect day to head outdoors. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is making it even more enticing by waiving its entrance fee.

The area’s scenic drive entrance fee will be waived from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Other fees, including overnight camping and group day use, will remain in effect.

Peak hours are expected to be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Officials said to arrive early to find parking and avoid congestion.
