The Fire Wave and Seven Wonders Loop is located in the Valley of Fire State Park, the oldest and largest state park in Nevada and is just located just an hour outside Las Vegas. Hikers are recommended to do this hike in the cooler months of the year. During the summer, the temperature is well over 100 degrees and there is no shade on the trail. The Fire Wave is best photographed in the late afternoon and early evening.

The fire waves have been posted online with so much increased contrast that it was a little disappointing b in person.

amazing

Great trail but once you get off of the fire wave trail there are no markings. Definitely download the map and just follow the creek bed. Great colors and photos all around.

Great trail, after the wave section we saw no one else and few footsteps

Heavy traffic, but at the end is worth the cool rock formation! Very easy, has some sandy parts.

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.

Recommend must-see trail. First part of Fire Wave Tral is easy to follow. After trail land marks disappear, Seven Wonder Trail is a little tricky. Follow the wash between the valley. In latter part of trail comes two misleading forks. This Alltrails map saved us. From my point of view latter part of the trail is more beautiful. Make sure to download the trail map from Alltrails, with enough battery on your phone, and follow the trail map.

A beautiful hike and I had it all to myself early morning weekday in January. Be aware that the Fire Wave trail is well signed but the Seven Wonders section is not maintained or signed and is not even on the State Park map. Without AllTrails, I might still be wandering among the many dry washes

Fire wave was beautiful. Seven wonders was difficult to stay in trail as following washes will tend to get you lost. We ended up following a search and rescue party (they were there for someone else) on an adventure and eventually made our way out of the canyon.

Really nice trail, surrounded by rocks with beautiful colors. At the end of the first third, we bifurcated right in direction of White Domes and made an out and back in a slot canyon before continuing our way on the Seven Wonders. Bonus : uncrowded trail, we did not meet anyone except... a group of young bighorns :)
