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.
Good hike mostly follows the river bar so look for firm sand to make travel quicker and easier ,lots to see and enjoy ..trail eventually ends at a seemingly impassable rock face ..take the scramble trail up and over for great views and more miles ..could follow these canyons all day ,everywhere is awesome ..get out there check it out
Awesome hike ..definitely not a mile ..I added in the white domes loop and hiked back to prospect trail head and clocked about 10 miles ..so be prepared for at least 9 miles there and back ..well worth it though ,easy miles too ..trail is split between a designated easy to follow trail on hard packed surface and some river bar, rock scrambling sections too ..weather was great ..all around good times
This trail is actually a 5.5 mile hike up to White Dome trail. Around 3.5 miles in there is some light climbing involved which adds some fun to the hike. My wife and I had a great time doing this trail. Once you get to White Domes you are rewarded with tons of neat, different things to gaze at! My wife and I decided to hike back battling what daylight we had left. Ended up hiking over 11 miles total up and back. We will do this trail again for sure with the kids soon!

Excellent hikes all throughout the park. Very pretty and some easy hikes, some a little more challenging.

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.
