awesome easy and great pics.

Really pretty short hike. I also climbed up the large rock close to the midpoint for some added interest and elevation gain. Very easy to do several of these short Valley of Fire hikes in a day.

Did the loop trail instead. Definitely recommend it over this super short one. Picturesque and fun.

If you hike only one trail in Valley of Fire this should be it! Amazing colors, rock formations, slot canyon, awesome! Do it!

Easy walk even in the sand. Went all the way to the end to the Fire Canyon overlook. Lots to see and enjoy!

I did the bowl of fire trail in its entirety and then some. It took 7.5 hours. The trail was filled with all that a sportsman can handle. Note: you have to be in great shape to do this trail. The trail starts moderately easy but then it gets challenging. Have gloves handy. There are hills, mountains; the open desert, valleys and amazing sandstone rock formations. What a view! Important: please note that the trail disappears once you go down to the valley. You will need your GPS on. Alert: turn on your GPS from home and leave it on. You will lose reception well before you get to your hike location and then you will not be able to navigate your way. Have a power bank for your phone. EXTRA EXTRA!!! I was nearly attacked by a big bird. Not fun. I came face to face with a coiled rattle snake which was about 4 feet and I was within 8 feet from it. It was about to attack but I ran a few feet to create distance and it also disappeared. They shake the end of their tails when you're close so you'll always know if they're around. Please don't let that scare you. Enjoy the trail. Have fun. Take water with you and above all, be safe.

another good one while visiting this park. all short hikes

By far the best views in all of Valley Of Fire. Hike up and enjoy the view! Enjoy a quiet picnic and don’t forget to leave nothing but footprints

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

Super cool trail with a great little slot Canyon! The rain had just hit, so the water was pretty deep in some places. We ended up wading through almost waist deep water in some places. Super rad hike though!

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

Nice quick hike.

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!

Very easy to get to. Not that impressive in my opinion. Worth a stop if you have little ones maybe

Great hike with unlimited types and shades of beautiful rock formations. Great little slot canyon along the path. There are many small arches along the entire trail. Every step well worth the minimal effort. Highly recommended

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

Visited the park on the way to Zion National Park and can honestly say I am very glad we did. The Valley of Fire SP does not disappoint. We were able to get in a couple of short rewarding hikes. The rock formations are very unique and interesting. Highly recommended.

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!

not much hiking. You can almost drive up to the cabins. We hiked farther up and it was pretty. Some scrambling was necessary to go farther back.

beautiful scenery. We saw 2 antelope in the road that refused to move and later We spotted a big horn sheep right off the road. We checked out several trails that day. Great for kids. Don't go midday summer, too hot.

Unfortunately it was too hot to finish the trail, but we did go about 0.3 miles in. The views are outstanding, and the scenary consistently is changing with each turn. We would love to go again on our next visit to NV.
