amazing hiking trail, similar to the valley of fire but more secluded. i was the only one on the trail in August. there is so much to explore here! i spent 6 hours going through a maze of sandstone cliffs. perfect for bouldering. you do need to conserve some energy for the hike back though plenty of shade. highly recommend!

So I drive a Kia Soul and tried to off road this, we didn't get stuck but I wouldn't recommend it. You can park off the highway and hike back. It doesn't add that much time to the hike and the Bowl of Fire is like a 15-minute hike from the trailhead. There is some bouldering but if you're in decent shape you can do it. I wear a prosthetic leg and managed fine. It's definitely worth it. I recommend bringing a good camera if you have one because it's very picturesque. There's also not much of trail once you get back there so you can just explore.

This is a great hike with varying difficulties. Reaching the trail head is a hike in itself, this took about an hour from driving off road until we decided to park on some solid ground. The various hiking elements varied from red sand to a slight boulder climb to continue on. Recommend GPS due to the unmarked paths and easily confusing scenery that can turn you around.

Very neat single-day destination hike. We drove up a jeep road and into a wash to get closer to the bowl, then we hiked up the small canyon/drainage for when it rains, this leads directly into the bowl and you cannot miss it. It is the best way to get into the bowl if you have a vehicle you are comfortable driving in the wash. I recommend studying some local maps and a good GPS if you are going to drive up the jeep roads.

Very nice hike, but the trail is not well defined. Getting in the bowl can be a little tricky for old guys. Bring a pair of gloves if you try climbing the left side. The rock colors are beautiful with lots of cool formations. Bring a lunch and carry it out!
