Special Features:The soft, deep red sandstone of Red Rock Canyon was formed 200 million years ago during the Permian era. Cheyenne Indians, who once roamed the area, used the canyons in winter as a refuge against the cold north wind. During the mid-1800s, the canyon was a favorite stop for wagon trains traveling from Arkansas to California. Today, the canyon floor supports an unusually wide variety of foliage, including sugar maples, trees not normally found this far west.
