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.
Beautiful and diverse rock formations. Moderate to easy but you can jet off course and conquer a cliff or gully at any given time- arrive early and allow at least 3-4 hours, perfect for packing a lunch and enjoying the day. Can get crowded around the parking areas but thins out fast as you hike back in. Stop and enjoy amazing views!
