Short, easy walk through canyon filled with prehistoric indian petroglyphs Petroglyph Canyon at Valley of Fire State Park is probably the most accessible way for visitors to view petroglyphs. The walk is short and very easy in the sandy bottom of this narrow canyon. Resist the temptation to touch the petroglyphs as they are easily damaged and cannot be repaired, or replaced. Absolutely no one alive today knows for certain what these ancient markings mean, but there is an informational sign at the trail entrance which explains some of the most commonly accepted interpretations. As you walk through this canyon, it is easy to imagine that you're transported back in time -- the grandeur and solitude (if you're lucky that is) of these brilliant red sandstone cliffs is almost overwhelming. In the summertime, the heat in this canyon is stifling and intense -- best viewed early in the morning or just before sunset; daily summer highs usually exceed 100 degrees, and 120 degrees is considered common. Carry water with you year-round.

The highlight of this hike was the walk itself through the canyon. Mouse's tank was underwhelming.

Mouse's Tank is the first parking lot after the Visitor's Center. The trail is very short and can be done by almost any skill level. The trail is very sandy and took us about 10 minutes to get to the end. Petroglyph Canyon Trail is also part of this hike where you can look and enjoy the petroglyphs on the rocks above you. TIP #1: Respect the petroglyphs. Do not mess with them. TIP #2: Petroglyph translations can be found at the trailhead TIP #3: This trail is a good warm up or "add on" to the other trails in Valley of Fire.

A short hike with amazing views. You can climb up on some of the rocks as well. Did this hike on a weekday afternoon and it wasn’t too busy. I think if you did the hike in the summer it would be quite rough, but it was pleasant in the winter.

Awesome hike for little kids with little pools to look into

Nice easy walk with a lot of pretty scenery

Just so great! Miss shade here than others and chilly in January. Don't miss this piece of history.

As with most hikes in the park, you are completely exposed. Take the heat warning seriously. Have water and sturdy high top boots to keep the sand out. Sturdy sandals would work too. I would avoid tennis shoes. Petroglyphs are scattered about so keep looking around on the rock walls about 10 feet up.

Trail is mostly sand. Petroglyphs are super cool to see and worth the very hot and sunny hike.

75 degrees but feels significantly warmer. Pack lots of water and take advantage of the shady alcoves to rehydrate. Walk is flat beach-like with many opportunities to go off trail for some scramble. Look up so you don’t miss the petroglyphs.

More people on the trail than I expected on a Tuesday in September.

Went earlier in the day, so the temps. weren't bad. The petroglyphs were easy to spot, but the "tank" was empty this time of the year.

Extremely hot temperatures kept us from completing this short trail. I made the ultimate error and wore sandals. Felt like I was walking on fire as the temperature was 106 degrees! Petroglyphs were easy to find.

Temperature was about 85F. Good hike late morning, not crowded. Sandy surface makes hiking a little more difficult. Don’t miss the water pool to the right of the large formation at the end of the trail.

Awesome little trail to do with kids. Depending on time of day, it's mostly shaded and quiet. We loved this little trail!

Petroglyphs were wonderful to see. Went in February a few years ago, thus perfect temperature.

Doll don't go if it's hotter than 65F
