Kid friendly!! My daughters hiked barefooted because it’s all sand. We found water at the end of the hike and several small caves.

A short hike but a beautiful view. It was very hot the day we went but the crowds weren’t bad.

Went Oct 27/2018, very nice day, around 80 degrees. Beautiful hike, and not very difficult.

Nice quick hike.

$10 to get into this Nevada State Park. The scenic driving is great. Nice places to stop along the way and take photos.

We enjoyed this hike very much. Started at the main road and parked in the little lot there hiking to the white dome hiking trail and back. It ended up being 10.88 miles round trip. Rough terrain in some areas. We saw two desert big horn sheep which was a real treat! The white dome trail has an area of shade in between two massive rock cliffs that allowed us to have our half way snack break in the shade w a cool breeze. Sun screen and water carried in is a must for this hike! Boy Scouts marked the trail with white poles w yellow tape at top. Easy enough to navigate, but you have to be looking for them.

I recommend timing to finish this hike no later than 8-9am in the summer months. Direct sunlight 90% of the trail so bring hats, sunscreen, water! Just before sunrise/just after sunset is the best time to go— better photo ops when the sun isn’t directly on the wave. Very simple & easy trail to follow though. I saw a group of 15+ bighorn sheep right along the trail which was neat!

Short steep walk to a fenced in petrified log. Not really too amazing.

Nice relatively flat trek out to some interesting stripped rock formations. Entire trail is open with little or no shade and could be extremely hot during certain times of the day or year. This early morning early September walk was very pleasant

Great views! My daughters love climbing and playing with the red sand.

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

there wasn't much to see.

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!

Beautiful scenery just outside of Las Vegas. The park roads are in excellent condition and everything is well marked. There is a lot of variation in the rocks as you complete the loop. I would highly recommend for anyone!

Easy hike with a great reward at the end. Beautiful natural formation. Worth the easy hike from the road.

Path definitely could use some better marking as it was difficult to find our way to the end. Bring some water as you are out in the heat with minimal to no shade

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.

We didn’t make the the entire trail length because of time constraints. We made it a little over 3.25 miles in before turning around (parked at the south entrance). It took us about 3 hours to for the 6.5 miles, and I’m a slower hiker.
Trail was pretty clearly marked except a small patch or two when you had to scramble up or down some boulders. I enjoyed it and would like to make it the whole way. It was phenomenally gorgeous!

Neat, quick hike.

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

It's a pretty nice hike and if you're already at the park, it's worth seeing. Parking is crowded. The patterns the rocks make are pretty cool. Downside is that, until the end, there's not much to see along this trail.

Nice easy hike with the cool fire wave rocks at the end. The path could have been marked a bit clearer as we went a bit off course but still worth checking out.

Wow! Technically speaking only base on Fire Wave Trail - Nice. Small thought. The Trail is Easy, big rocks plus the “Fire Wave (like) Rocks” are just cool, watch your step the rocks are rigid but other than that it’s something different. Sit, relax and clear your mind.

Very quick and easy hike with cool views of the rocks in the park. Would be an easy hike to pair with another longer hike for the day. Lots of water needed as most of the hike is in the sun.

Hike was crowded mid-day on a Tuesday in April. I imagine the whole thing would be more grand in early morning light anyhow. Lots of lizards, blooming cacti, and beautiful striped rocks.

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