Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest and largest state park, dedicated 1935. The park is located in Overton and abuts the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Ancient petrified trees and early man are represented throughout the park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian rock art. Popular activities include camping, hiking, picnicking and photography. Popular highlights of the park include the unique red rock formations of Elephant Rock, Arch Rock, Mouse's Tank and Seven Sisters, as well as the petroglyphs at Atlatl Rock. There is an abundance of wildlife throughout the park and you may even see desert big horn sheep. The park offers a full-scale visitor center with extensive interpretive displays. Several group use areas are also available. The park is a quick drive from the Las Vegas Strip via I-15 North. You may also opt to take the more scenic route and stop at Lake Mead as well. The park has an entrance fee of $10/vehicle or $8/vehicle if you are a Nevada Resident. Rv camping is permitted as well at a rate of $20/night and $10/night for utility hook-ups. If you are a Nevada resident you will receive a discount of ($2/night. The park is open all year.

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

Short little hike over differing terrains, beautiful sandstone contacts and the conglomerates are beautiful as well. Fire wave itself is very small.

Not really what you would call a hike. If you have never seen a petrified log before take it. If you have, save your energy for a little better trail and sights.

Beautiful scenery. The colors in the surrounding rocks are incredible

This is a wonderful trail with the spectacular views and colors of the surrounding areas. I would say that the drop into the canyon was a little more than easy. For my wife and I, I would rate this trail more as moderate. Well worth the effort.

easy hike and loads of petroglyphs high up on your left as you walk toward the end of hike. lots of traffic on this hike. at the end, look for the stone bowl in ground where native americans used to ground corn and such.

SPECTACULAR imagery along the hike! So many unique rock formations and colors to gawk at. Very simple hike but you will want to be constantly stopping to take pictures and gaze at your surroundings! Valley of Fire is one of the coolest places I've ever visited.

A great trail with a decent about of challenges to keep the hike fun. Beautiful scenery in all directions. My sister and I hiked from the trailhead towards the white dome loop. We never made it bc towards the end the obvious trail disappears and boot prints take off in multiple directions. At the same time, the few markers that exist stop all together. We tried to figure out where to go but weren't willing to risk getting lost while on the count down to sunset. Still a fabulous day hike!

This was so neat but sad to see the graffiti on the petroglyphs

Nice walk! Go further up for nice view

Nice little walk to see petroglyphs

Love this little loop. So beautiful and peaceful. Doesn't seem to get as much traffic as the main road

But if you go BEYOND the trail and down into the river valley... it’s amazing! We walked for 7km, played on the sand, and found some really cool rocks.

I wouldn’t call this a “hike” it’s a 5 minute walk to see petrified logs.

very nice hike. great views, many directional signs and easy enough for all abilities. Its not 3.1 miles more like 1.1. Awesome slot canyon too.

Nice hike. Interesting slot canyon in the middle. Part of hike in sand so slow going. We took some side trails and found some interesting spots. What a great park

Easy hike with great rock formations. The trail is easy to follow and would be good for kids. Plenty of side trails to adventure off in your own. Didn’t see any animals but you will see many different animal tracks in the sand.

It was a beautiful hike, we did the full trail and added the White Dome Loop at the end since it’s right next to it. It took us approximately 3.5-4 hours, with short breaks to take pictures and enjoy some snacks.

We found the bed rock a little annoying to walk on, but such is the nature of the trail.

Also, it’s pretty well marked considering it’s an unmarked/unkept trail.
