Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest and largest state park, dedicated 1935. The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Ancient trees and early man are represented throughout the park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyph. Popular activities include camping, hiking, picnicking and photography. The park offers a full-scale visitor center with extensive interpretive displays. Several group use areas are also available. The park is open all year.
Jennifer R. on Valley of Fire: Elephant Rock
Excellent hikes all throughout the park. Very pretty and some easy hikes, some a little more challenging.
Jeff M. on White Domes Trail
Awesome hike! Great little canyons and rocks to look at.
Jeff M. on Fire Wave Trail
Great Hike, a little longer than White Domes. Doable in an hour or so.

I've done this hike a few times. The last time was in 2012. I took my daughter, and my two younger cousins with me. Pretty easy hike. Once we reached the top of the domes the view was very nice.
Valley of Fire SP. parking lot #3. Easy well marked hiking trail. The formation is more of a wind sculpted sandstone hill of contrasting colorful layers, not so much a wave. There are much more impressive sandstone colors if you hike an unmarked trailhead at the opposite side of the parking lot. That trail is moderately difficult.
Slightly tricky footwork in the very beginning due to smooth sand on rock stairs, but smooth sailing after that. Perfect short hike for anyone at all! Loop takes you directly back to the parking lot, and trail is well marked with signs directing you. Took me about a half hour to complete. Next time, I will take my time and do a little exploring. Absolutely stunning scenery. Don't miss this little hike!!
