Valley of Fire State Park is a little over an hour away from the Las Vegas, and is the oldest and largest state park in Nevada. The Fire Wave, located in Valley of Fire State Park is an easy hike to an amazing sandstone formation in the it resembles an ocean wave with swirling patterns of red, white, and pink sandstone. With a beautiful backdrop this is one of the best, if not the best hike in the park. The trail is sandy at the beginning of the hike and transitions into sandstone. Rock cairns (small stacks of rocks) lead the way on the sandstone to the Fire Wave. 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.

We loved hiking around the Valley of Fire. None of the trails in this area are challenging, and the scenery is beautiful. Would be a great spot to camp for a few days and explore.
