Valley of Fire consists of bright red Aztec sandstone outcrops nestled in gray and tan limestone mountains. The sandstone is from the Jurassic period and is the remnant of the sand left behind by the wind after inland seas subsided and the land rose.

Visited the park on the way to Zion National Park and can honestly say I am very glad we did. The Valley of Fire SP does not disappoint. We were able to get in a couple of short rewarding hikes. The rock formations are very unique and interesting. Highly recommended.

beautiful scenery. We saw 2 antelope in the road that refused to move and later We spotted a big horn sheep right off the road. We checked out several trails that day. Great for kids. Don't go midday summer, too hot.

We entered the park from the Lake Mead side and drove through the Valley of Fire. Really cool rock formations - deep red and white strata, with some interesting short hikes and a couple of side roads too. Don't miss Elephant Rock - it really looks like an elephant! Great side trip if you are in Vegas. Don't forget to pay your state park fee if entering from the back.
