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.

An amazing trail with a great payoff at the end with the Fire Wave. The beginning of the trail is also very picturesque.
In the summer, be careful and bring extra water. The heat from the sand and the rocks sap your strength and will make what should be an easy hike into a struggle.

Not quite a hike, but a trip up some stairs.
The view at the top is pretty spectacular however. and you get to see some interesting petroglyphs. It is unfortunate that people have vandalized the formation with their own carvings.

Simple and easy trail with a fun payoff in the Elephant Rock.
Downside is that you can see fairly well from the road, but the trail that leads to the back is pretty.
Can't complain too much for this short pretty hike.

Nice hike for all abilities if the weather is not too hot. If it's summertime be sure to take 2-3 liter of water with you just to be safe. The temperature was EXTREME (115 F) this weekend and you could have cooked steak on the rocks. Beautiful golden pics at sunset!

Very easy trail with great views of historic petroglyphs. I went on this walk with my 8 year old son. It was both fun and easy and ended with a view down into a small hidden valley.

This was an awesome trail ! Beautiful scenery and the best part is going through the shaded canyon. Bring lots of water!
