Nice trail. Cool to see petroglyphs so close to the city.

easy hike and loads of petroglyphs high up on your left as you walk toward the end of hike. lots of traffic on this hike. at the end, look for the stone bowl in ground where native americans used to ground corn and such.

pretty cool hike in the canyon!

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.

The nature signs posted by Washoe County Parks & Recreation appear written by a person with only a grade school level education.
Basic Writing 101, do not use the word “you,” and these signs repeatedly use the word “you.” Where was the editor?

Too much dog poop on the trail.

amazing trail despite some of the debris I found.

Very fun shorter trail. Definitely would rate moderate for anyone in a full size truck, easy on an ATV or maybe a two door Jeep (anything narrow with a short wheelbase). Did this trail in my Tundra crew cab, and barely fit in a couple places, plus the trail winds along 70-100 foot drop offs in certain points (not as easy when your tires are on the edge). Very rocky in certain places, so be careful not to pop a tire, and watch for other traffic on the trail because passing is extremely difficult on most of the route. Amazing views and took about 40 minutes to complete at a slow comfortable pace. Would definitely do it again, and if I were in a more narrow vehicle I’m sure it would be even more fun and a little less hair raising.

Great trail while visiting Vegas with good views of the canyons

The staging point for off road driving is on Avenida De Landa where it turns into Las Brisas. Look for the sign in the picture. All other entrance points are blocked off. Fun trails. We didn't have a lot of time to explore so we'll be back for sure.

This is a great little walkabout. The state has provided a visitor center/museum that is very informative and interesting regarding the ruins. It is best appreciated at dusk, because the desert sunsets are amazing. Caution to keep your pets leashed and kids nearby in reptile seasons due to a heavy rattlesnake population.

I frequently visit the old ruins here and as a photographer it has yielded some great photos. They are currently updating the power lines that run past the site and it has provided easier access. However this is privately owned and exploring it is technically trespassing. There are amazing desert landscapes here that are best appreciated at dusk.

excellent challenging trail with beautiful views!

Great 5 mike loop for a good cardio hike. Easy to get lost. I was definitely glad I had this app with me. Look and listen for bikers. I did run into quiet a few on the trail. I’ll put it on my list to do again.

Beautiful hike! You can cut through to take a quick peek of the monkey rock and the beautiful 270 degree view of the lake. Shortcut is a bit steep but well worth it.

Several pools in the area that we were able to find by seeing the steam coming off the ground. Nobody around, just us and a rabbit. You will definitely need 4 wheel drive. There were varying degrees of warmth. Watch out for bubbling water!! That’s boiling water. We chose not to get in the water since it was 19 degrees outside.

Great view. Difficult decent with the loose rocks!

Nothing says happiness quiet like being "spare changed" while out for a walk. This could be a really nice area with the art, architecture and the river. The campers ruin it for me. Normally, I take several photos of the walks that I take. Not so with this walk, due to the garbage/clothing/janky towns left behind. I did see an otter swimming across the river; which is why it got 2 stars.

Trail was fun! We stared from the left and continued clockwise when we came across most people did the other way. Someone reviewed that this trail needed more sign to help hikers to stay on the path, which I agree so much. We seen many people practicing rock climbing which is pretty cool. Liked this trail. With some parts, you really need to figure out how to overcome some puzzling way to keep moving forward but you will find different way so, if you feel your stuck, don’t worry, you are not.

Loved! Beautiful. Super fun and different.
