Bowl of Fire is a 16.5 mile out and back trail located near Overton, NV. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This is a great hike with varying difficulties. Reaching the trail head is a hike in itself, this took about an hour from driving off road until we decided to park on some solid ground. The various hiking elements varied from red sand to a slight boulder climb to continue on. Recommend GPS due to the unmarked paths and easily confusing scenery that can turn you around.
Very neat single-day destination hike. We drove up a jeep road and into a wash to get closer to the bowl, then we hiked up the small canyon/drainage for when it rains, this leads directly into the bowl and you cannot miss it. It is the best way to get into the bowl if you have a vehicle you are comfortable driving in the wash. I recommend studying some local maps and a good GPS if you are going to drive up the jeep roads.
Very nice hike, but the trail is not well defined. Getting in the bowl can be a little tricky for old guys. Bring a pair of gloves if you try climbing the left side. The rock colors are beautiful with lots of cool formations. Bring a lunch and carry it out!
