Gorgeous views

Loved the soft dirt, gorgeous, and at the end there was a few ponds. Would love to see what this would be like in April.

This walk is tougher than you think as you simply walk along the riverbed the whole time so walking in sand. Only saw 1 natural bridge as did not go all the way as after 2 hours one way we were tired. Also the main arch has collapsed. Limited parking at trailhead only enough for 4/5 cars on side of road area.

Nice short trail takes around 30 mins, petroglyphs on the rock, which is cool. Toilets are trailhead. Fairly trafficked even in November.

The worst hike(walk) I’ve done so far.. walking on super soft sand pretty much the whole way.. great views but after a while it all looked the same and got boring.. got to the end and no natural bridge standing,, so was pointless to go there!! I would give a -5 starts if could!!

awesome easy and great pics.

Really pretty short hike. I also climbed up the large rock close to the midpoint for some added interest and elevation gain. Very easy to do several of these short Valley of Fire hikes in a day.

Did the loop trail instead. Definitely recommend it over this super short one. Picturesque and fun.

If you hike only one trail in Valley of Fire this should be it! Amazing colors, rock formations, slot canyon, awesome! Do it!

Easy walk even in the sand. Went all the way to the end to the Fire Canyon overlook. Lots to see and enjoy!

I did the bowl of fire trail in its entirety and then some. It took 7.5 hours. The trail was filled with all that a sportsman can handle. Note: you have to be in great shape to do this trail. The trail starts moderately easy but then it gets challenging. Have gloves handy. There are hills, mountains; the open desert, valleys and amazing sandstone rock formations. What a view! Important: please note that the trail disappears once you go down to the valley. You will need your GPS on. Alert: turn on your GPS from home and leave it on. You will lose reception well before you get to your hike location and then you will not be able to navigate your way. Have a power bank for your phone. EXTRA EXTRA!!! I was nearly attacked by a big bird. Not fun. I came face to face with a coiled rattle snake which was about 4 feet and I was within 8 feet from it. It was about to attack but I ran a few feet to create distance and it also disappeared. They shake the end of their tails when you're close so you'll always know if they're around. Please don't let that scare you. Enjoy the trail. Have fun. Take water with you and above all, be safe.

another good one while visiting this park. all short hikes

By far the best views in all of Valley Of Fire. Hike up and enjoy the view! Enjoy a quiet picnic and don’t forget to leave nothing but footprints

Kid friendly!! My daughters hiked barefooted because it’s all sand. We found water at the end of the hike and several small caves.

Super cool trail with a great little slot Canyon! The rain had just hit, so the water was pretty deep in some places. We ended up wading through almost waist deep water in some places. Super rad hike though!

Nice quick hike.

Nice loop. The dry fall was beautiful. The spring had more flow then I would have expected this late in the year. Overall a nice chill hike.

We enjoyed this hike very much. Started at the main road and parked in the little lot there hiking to the white dome hiking trail and back. It ended up being 10.88 miles round trip. Rough terrain in some areas. We saw two desert big horn sheep which was a real treat! The white dome trail has an area of shade in between two massive rock cliffs that allowed us to have our half way snack break in the shade w a cool breeze. Sun screen and water carried in is a must for this hike! Boy Scouts marked the trail with white poles w yellow tape at top. Easy enough to navigate, but you have to be looking for them.

Very easy to get to. Not that impressive in my opinion. Worth a stop if you have little ones maybe

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

7AM! We had a blast entering in from the Lake Mead side of the highway and hit this site first! Nobody there yet and early enough not to be too hot. You can park right below this rock formation and take a quick hike up. The trail is marked with some fading white chalk and takes you directly up and behind for an awesome view! FYI: Signs say not to walk on the road.
