7AM! We had a blast entering in from the Lake Mead side of the highway and hit this site first! Nobody there yet and early enough not to be too hot. You can park right below this rock formation and take a quick hike up. The trail is marked with some fading white chalk and takes you directly up and behind for an awesome view! FYI: Signs say not to walk on the road.

Lots of Petroglyphs to see! Short trail but the sand makes it just challenging enough for someone on their first hike like me!

short trail easy for kids and pets. Was easy to get lost. It's right off the road.

easy short hike for kids and pets to see lots of amazing petroglyphs. The sand is hot for pets, be careful. We saw 4 big horn sheep!

Quick trip up the stairs to see some great petroglyphs. Good for adults and children.

WOW!! Me fascinó hermoso lugar.

Un paseo muy hermoso me encantó.

Great little trail for the kids. Saw a handful of good sized lizards. Just long enough to "get a hike in", but not TOO long for little ones. We've got 5, the littlest two being 2 & 3, and they did great.

A long trail is not necesarily the most scenic! This short trail (1.1 mile round trip) is chocked full of glowing red rocks, seasonal wild flowers, and rock formations (arches and windows). We finished this trail in about 1 hour at a moderate pace. Sometimes if you are new to these kinds of trails, it's not always easy to spot the arches and window that hide or get camouflaged in the multicolored rock mounds. Since we have been on several other trails throughout Utah, we have gotten used to spotting some. While this video shows one arch in the peaks of the rocky cliffs, there may have been more we missed due to our fast pace and still relatively freshmen approach to trail walking and spotting natural features.

So many petroglyphs! I’ve never seen this many in one place before. I was really impressed.

Short and easy! The color change in the rocks is very noticeable and you can get a close look as well. Hiked to days ago and it was very hot!

Neat climb up a staircase to get a close look. But there is also more petroglyphs to look at all around the bottom of the mountain.

Absolutely stunning. It's a very short trail, but worth every moment. The first part has some trudging through soft sand, but the path towards Fire Canyon is mostly rock and easy going. Incredibly beautiful views of the canyon. The markers are easy enough to see, but you don't really need them, as it's fairly well traveled and you can see footsteps in the sand.

There's actually a looping trail here, but many people took the direct route to the elephant rock. I recommend the loop, as there is plenty of beautiful scenery to enjoy.

Many petroglyphs to see- don't miss this short hike!

Easy fun hike with a lot of petroglyphs and beautiful rock formations. The little “water tank” at the end is pretty neat and boast some great scenery

This is a climb up some stairs more than it is a hike. The petroglyphs at the top are really cool and you get great views of the desert. The surrounding area is also really cool and fun to explore. Definitely worth a stop.

I wouldn’t really call this a hiking trail. It’s a small short walk along the side of the main road right on the east entrance of the park. The rock formation is pretty neat though.

We walked the loop at this stop and enjoyed all of the amazing formations.

Overlook for Fire Canyon is breathtaking.

Really cool canyon with petroglyphs.

this is actually one of my least favorite areas of the park. However if you cross the street from the parking area and go up the hill there's lots of fun rocks to scramble over and a pretty view of Lake Mead

very pretty short trail. This trail also offers one of the easiest access points into Fire Canyon

very nice, but certainly not my favorite hike in this park

Fun little family trail, great to take off shoes and just walk in the sand.

Beautiful scenery. The colors in the surrounding rocks are incredible
