Great hike with unlimited types and shades of beautiful rock formations. Great little slot canyon along the path. There are many small arches along the entire trail. Every step well worth the minimal effort. Highly recommended

Unfortunately it was too hot to finish the trail, but we did go about 0.3 miles in. The views are outstanding, and the scenary consistently is changing with each turn. We would love to go again on our next visit to NV.

Easy loop hike with some decent views. Nice place if you are in Vegas and want to get outdoors.

Easy hike with lots of diversity. Slot canyon was nice and cool and a place to get relief from the sun.

We are novice hikers. The first bit is basically scrambling down rocks. You need good footwear. But once you get down, it is great. The scenery is just gorgeous. It is worth the extra climbing in the beginning. The hike back up, if you do the loop, is much more gradual. If you start at the other end of the loop. you have to go up those rocks and that does not look like fun unless you are comfortable with that. The terrain is sandy for the first bit before rocks and after the steep climb down. Then it is more stable. Excellent hike with gorgeous scenery.

I loved this trail! You can have a lot of fun. I went off trail and hiked to the top of the rocks and the view was breathtaking. If you like hiking with some obstacles give it a try. Totally recommend to get a little lost and enjoy the chance to take great photographs. Sun was hitting hard. Highly advised to drink plenty water and wear sunscreen.

Definitely a must do if you're in the area. Heading clockwise, there is some sand to trudge through at the beginning, but the trail is mostly easy going, rock paths. It's very heavily traveled, and I had an enthusiastic but loud group ahead of me, which took a bit away from the sense of exploring on your own. But, there are enough side paths and places to explore that it wasn't a huge issue.

Lots of amazing rock formations to see an climb on, as well as an ever changing landscape. The slot canyon is very brief but also very very cool.

Taking this trail clockwise (starting from the left behind the toilets) can be intimidating as you go down about 200 feet down a man made stone staircase. This can be tricky if you're not used to it, especially as the sand on the steps can be slippery with the wrong shoes. If this intimidates you, I'd suggest to start the trail from the other side of the parking circle, taking the trail counterclockwise. Going from this direction, you will take a sandy trail following the side of the road, then down some manmade steps (much more standardized in size than on the other side of the trail, and not steep at all- you can see those steps in my photos), then a short slick rock you may need to step down. This is the hardest part on this side of the trail, then the trail will be realatively flat for about .2-.3 miles, then it will get a little rocky. You could go down in to the wash take a left into the 'slot canyon' ... at the next left is where you can go up the 200 foot incline (staircase) or turn around and go back if the steps are intimidating.

Beautiful, short and easy hike! Definitely kid friendly. There are plenty of rocks to climb along the trail. The scenery and colors here are amazing and the little slot canyon around halfway through the hike is really cool. This hike has plenty of great photo ops as well!

Awesome colors, hard to comprehend how different areas so close to one another can be.

the trail is beautiful, but don't forget to stop and look around you or you will miss the hidden gems. There is a wonderful arch you can climb in and through near the end of the loop

This is a wonderful trail with the spectacular views and colors of the surrounding areas. I would say that the drop into the canyon was a little more than easy. For my wife and I, I would rate this trail more as moderate. Well worth the effort.

SPECTACULAR imagery along the hike! So many unique rock formations and colors to gawk at. Very simple hike but you will want to be constantly stopping to take pictures and gaze at your surroundings! Valley of Fire is one of the coolest places I've ever visited.

Nice hike. Interesting slot canyon in the middle. Part of hike in sand so slow going. We took some side trails and found some interesting spots. What a great park

Easy hike with great rock formations. The trail is easy to follow and would be good for kids. Plenty of side trails to adventure off in your own. Didn’t see any animals but you will see many different animal tracks in the sand.

End of November.
This trail would have been no more than a 3 simply due to the sheer number of people hiking it, regardless of the beauty.
However: catch a connecting trail or just start walking/climbing the rocks and it’s like you’ve got the world to yourself. For all the people on the loop, once we branched off saw one family of 5 in the next 3hrs...
and it was a pretty awesome- following washes, hidden slot canyons, valleys, etc etc
We finished up the hike at sunset which made it all the more amazing. Looked like an alien world.
Definitely recommend if u r willing to go off the beaten path.

This trail is a little more trafficked. It was a challenge maneuvering with my 3 adventure pups down the narrow rocks in the beginning but it was a beautiful trail. Make sure to go early in the morning for a cooler trip.

Great trail to test the capabilities of young hikers! Route down into the canyon is a fun climb, slot is a nice surprise, and the arch is a great photo-op. Lots of safe climbing around for the smaller ones.

Great trail. But it can definitely get hot out there, and the sand will let you know!

Very nice trail, short but lots of different scenery and nothint too strenuous. Even a small slot canyon!
However, make sure you do this very early in the morning if it's going to be a hot day.

This was the very 1st hike in the park. I really enjoyed the variety. If you hike the loop clockwise you drop down a bit hiking through sand and rocks. When you get to the bottom you start heading up a narrow canyon with interesting rock formation. You even get a little mid morning shade. Nice hike.
