Getting There

Rainbow Vista is a perfect name for the view one gets from the trailhead! The sandstone colors of the surrounding rock cover the entire color spectrum. Easy hike to the Fire Canyon Overlook. The beginning of the hike is very sandy. Great views. During the summer, be sure to do this hike early in the morning because there is no shade and the temperatures will be over 100 degrees.

Paved parking provided.

From Valley of Fire Hwy, left on Mouse's Tank Rd and drive approximately 2 miles.

What a great find! We stopped here on our way to Utah and are so happy we did. The walk is through the beautiful formations and ends with a great view. The kids loved climbing as we walked through and there were lots of places to stop and enjoy the scenery.

This trail was breathtaking, it comes to a sudden end and gives you such an amazing view of the rock formations and canyon down below. Very fine red sad to walk through and a little bit of rocks to climb over but this is great for anyone.

This trail was a very quick trail with an amazing view at the end. Just be warned of the sand. The whole trail is sand. Granted it’s only 1 mile total, but it was also attracting heat and my feel were HOT when we got back.

Pretty easy trail. Sand is pretty thick, but weather was great in February. Saw some big horn sheep as well.

Short and sweet hike, I came here on a Sunday morning around 9:45AM. Parking lot had a few cars and I saw a few people on the trail but not too many. The terrain is sandy and there's red rocks surrounding the trail. Quite pretty and enjoyable!

Perfect for our 5 & 9 year old. Mostly sand, a few small scrambles but nothing we couldn’t handle. Well trafficked but quiet on the far end.

Beautiful and easy trail. This is a great trail to include for any trip to Valley of Fire. But I was definitely surprised how sandy the path was! I would highly recommend this to tourists — there are plenty of great spots to stop for photos.

Great touristy hike. The first half is fairly flat is soft sand. The trail then gets a hit more rugged with some scampering. Beautiful hike. I did the hike early and had the trail to myself.
