Overview

Red Rock Wash Overlook is a quiet place to stop, stroll over to a bench, sit, and gaze out across Red Rock Wash towards the Red Rock Cliffs to the left, the La Madre Mountains to the north, and the Calico Hills to the east. These views are available elsewhere, but at this middle-distance, one gets the benefit of close views with enough distance to get a good overview.

In spring, this is a good place to look for wildflowers, especially bloom buckhorn cholla.

Red Rock Wash Overlook is located about 2/3rds of the way around the Scenic Loop Road. For details of getting to Red Rock Wash Overlook, see Scenic Loop Road.
