Rock climbingGreat!

One of the highlights of our trip. Kids (and grownups) loved climbing the rock formations and hiding in the many “caves”. Get out and explore.

Valley of fire is a really cool place that is easy to pass by. I’m glad we spent an afternoon here on the way to Utah

A good, short drive behind the campgrounds. Any hike or walk into the rock formations is much worth the effort of all the treasures you’ll find!

Walking

This is a beautiful short drive just off the main road through the park. Half of the loop road is paved with asphalt while the other half is rocky and sandy. We completed this loop twice via vehicle and spotted Bighorn sheep both times. You’ll also see a couple of the attractions such as an arch and petroglyphs. There are also two nice campground areas situated along this loop.

normally I'm much more inclined to go for a hike than a scenic drive, but this short drive is full of mesmerizing rock formations and even a stop for cool petroglyphs. definitely check it out while you're in the area!

Beautiful scenery just outside of Las Vegas. The park roads are in excellent condition and everything is well marked. There is a lot of variation in the rocks as you complete the loop. I would highly recommend for anyone!

So peaceful to drive. You can catch a glimpse of a big horned sheep or desert turtle if you're lucky!
