Exit 75 off Interstate 15 (55 miles northeast of Las Vegas)
Overton , Nevada
Tel: 702 397 2088's insider take:

One of the great surprises of what seems like a barren, tumbleweed-strewn desert is this incredible region of beet-colored rock formations that offers some of Nevada's prettiest hiking. About an hour northeast of Las Vegas, the blank terrain suddenly gives way to a basin of looming red-and-white sandstone hills spreading out over more than 34,000 acres. Some of the 150-million-year-old formations look like beehives, another resembles an elephant. Plus, there are Native American petroglyphs from approximately a millennium ago.
