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.

Easy trail, beautiful rock formations. Can get crowded, but plenty of areas to go off trail and explore on your own.

We started at White Dome and unfortunately took a wrong turn to the left. What we did see was very pretty and good workout.

Great scenery! Park at pullout #3 and walk across the road to the sign. The first part is mainly hiking thru Fire Wave with a few chances to boulder. Don’t be worried if you lose the trail a bit. You’re never too far away from the road. Once you hit 7 Wonders, there’s a few chances to scramble a bit to get some really great views. The best thing about the last section is the slot hiking. It was about 68degrees today and I did the entire loop in 2hrs, taking stops for pics.

Done as 2 hikes but both were nice. A very windy day meant lots of grit in eyes and teeth, especially White Domes Trl. Unbelievable amount of trash on trail, even with trash cans at both Fire Wave and White Domes parking.

If you can do only 1 short trail in Valley of Fire, make it this one. Short, flat, lots of walls for shade. Petroglyphs, butterflies, lizards, walls with caves, windows and Swiss cheese formations, and the outlaws tank make the travel guide description and Visitor Center displays real.

Tried this w/o AllTrails map, just using Park map and info. A nice, private, relatively flat, wash hike with some short sections of slot canyons. Easy to follow wash, but no signage, and without any detailed map we walked all the way to Northshore Rd. Having no markers for the loop out to Elephant Rock we just did an out and back. It had rained that morning the surface was a bit firmer, everything was greener, flowers were blooming. One small drawback - lots of horse poop, or it would have been 5 stars.

Perfect four generation family hike! (3 month old, 3 year old, all the way up to 75+ years old). We saw about 14 mountain goats! Lots of petroglyphs. There are sandy areas for kids to play. We had a picnic at the table near the entrance of the park.

This trail has incredible rock formations and great views. I definitely suggest you go off trail a bit and do some exploring. Could get very hot in the summer because there is no shade, but we were here in early March and it was great. 1 hour.

No pictures could possibly prepare you for what this trail will be. Very cool views and incredible rocks. We hit this spot on our drive from Zion back to the Vegas airport and if you have some time to kill I definitely suggest it. 1 hour.

Trail is not marked and the Arrowhead Arch does not exist or it is very small disappointing. Not recommended.

We started out on the Fire Wave section. Very crowded with beautiful scenery. At the end of the Fire Wave the trail runs into a wash, and most people turned around. The wash turns into a small slot canyon and then crosses the road. The trail then becomes worth the trip, very beautiful colors and fun.

Easy,great views, enjoyed it.

This was a great hike for any skill level. Be careful not to twist your ankles on the rocks. Keep a look out, there are a bunch of petroglyphs along the trail. There's also an off shoot at the end of the trail that takes you to a really cool rock canyon.

Great walk with lots of opportunity to explore the beautiful walks. Be sure to stay to the left as you start out so you catch the trail head. We accidentally walked right by it and continued to follow the road. Great conditions.

Super short but don’t miss this if you go to valley of Fire!

Great short trail with a slot, small arch and ruins from a movie set. Good sample of what the park offers in one short hike.

Did it as two separate hikes but both were great

Quick stop with some stairs to the rock. It gets you a pretty nice close view of the petroglyphs.

Absolutely beautiful road! A lot of great trails off of the road.

Short and sweet trail with a nice view of the rock formation.

More like a stop on the side of the road. If you go up to the top and look around its got a decent view.
