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.

Nice loop. The dry fall was beautiful. The spring had more flow then I would have expected this late in the year. Overall a nice chill hike.

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!

Great park. Not to be missed if you have some extra time going to Zion from vegas

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

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.

Great trails to visit during the colder months of the year. Offers everything from rock crawling to dunes and caters to any type of off-road vehicle. Beautiful rock formations and wildlife.

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!

there wasn't much to see.

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.

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!

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

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.

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

5 minutes walk down a paved area

WOW!! Me fascinó hermoso lugar.
