Really nice parking and picnic area. Easy to get to. Wish they had more info about the petroglyphs... how they were made, what they might mean etc.

Not quite a hike, but a trip up some stairs.
The view at the top is pretty spectacular however. and you get to see some interesting petroglyphs. It is unfortunate that people have vandalized the formation with their own carvings.

Cool petroglyphs, quite a few stairs to get to them.

Everywhere in Valley of Fire is a great experience

The whole park is beautiful, and there are so many adventures that one can undertake. Unfortunately, there are scumbags who somehow think it's appropriate to damage the petroglyphs. Maybe one day there will be a collective effort to hunt these pieces of garbage down, beat them to a pulp, and throw them off a cliff. For those that actually appreciate our national and state parks, including the irreplaceable native art, there is much to be explored and admired at Valley of Fire.

I included pictures from hikes in the Valley of Fire state park in Nevada. it was well worth the short drive from Vegas and 10 dollars to get into the park.

All these hikes were in the same area The valley of fire state park in Nevada.
So I enclosed pictures from the trails next to the featured trails. It was well worth the short drive from Vegas and 10 dollars to get into the park.
