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.

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

Easy loop hike with some decent views. Nice place if you are in Vegas and want to get outdoors.

Easy hike with lots of diversity. Slot canyon was nice and cool and a place to get relief from the sun.

We are novice hikers. The first bit is basically scrambling down rocks. You need good footwear. But once you get down, it is great. The scenery is just gorgeous. It is worth the extra climbing in the beginning. The hike back up, if you do the loop, is much more gradual. If you start at the other end of the loop. you have to go up those rocks and that does not look like fun unless you are comfortable with that. The terrain is sandy for the first bit before rocks and after the steep climb down. Then it is more stable. Excellent hike with gorgeous scenery.

Amazing Experience

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.

A fun little trail with an easily accessible slot canyon. Great family hike.

Awesome off road trip. saw 12 head of big horns. Just before the old car. lizards everywhere. Drove the loop and then some.

I loved this trail! You can have a lot of fun. I went off trail and hiked to the top of the rocks and the view was breathtaking. If you like hiking with some obstacles give it a try. Totally recommend to get a little lost and enjoy the chance to take great photographs. Sun was hitting hard. Highly advised to drink plenty water and wear sunscreen.

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!

Definitely a must do if you're in the area. Heading clockwise, there is some sand to trudge through at the beginning, but the trail is mostly easy going, rock paths. It's very heavily traveled, and I had an enthusiastic but loud group ahead of me, which took a bit away from the sense of exploring on your own. But, there are enough side paths and places to explore that it wasn't a huge issue.

Lots of amazing rock formations to see an climb on, as well as an ever changing landscape. The slot canyon is very brief but also very very cool.

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.

Taking this trail clockwise (starting from the left behind the toilets) can be intimidating as you go down about 200 feet down a man made stone staircase. This can be tricky if you're not used to it, especially as the sand on the steps can be slippery with the wrong shoes. If this intimidates you, I'd suggest to start the trail from the other side of the parking circle, taking the trail counterclockwise. Going from this direction, you will take a sandy trail following the side of the road, then down some manmade steps (much more standardized in size than on the other side of the trail, and not steep at all- you can see those steps in my photos), then a short slick rock you may need to step down. This is the hardest part on this side of the trail, then the trail will be realatively flat for about .2-.3 miles, then it will get a little rocky. You could go down in to the wash take a left into the 'slot canyon' ... at the next left is where you can go up the 200 foot incline (staircase) or turn around and go back if the steps are intimidating.

Beautiful, short and easy hike! Definitely kid friendly. There are plenty of rocks to climb along the trail. The scenery and colors here are amazing and the little slot canyon around halfway through the hike is really cool. This hike has plenty of great photo ops as well!
