A long trail is not necesarily the most scenic! This short trail (1.1 mile round trip) is chocked full of glowing red rocks, seasonal wild flowers, and rock formations (arches and windows). We finished this trail in about 1 hour at a moderate pace. Sometimes if you are new to these kinds of trails, it's not always easy to spot the arches and window that hide or get camouflaged in the multicolored rock mounds. Since we have been on several other trails throughout Utah, we have gotten used to spotting some. While this video shows one arch in the peaks of the rocky cliffs, there may have been more we missed due to our fast pace and still relatively freshmen approach to trail walking and spotting natural features.

So many petroglyphs! I’ve never seen this many in one place before. I was really impressed.

4x4 needed for this trail during summer months. Trail was gated at the entrance to the canyon. Trail is closed.

Short and easy! The color change in the rocks is very noticeable and you can get a close look as well. Hiked to days ago and it was very hot!

Absolutely stunning. It's a very short trail, but worth every moment. The first part has some trudging through soft sand, but the path towards Fire Canyon is mostly rock and easy going. Incredibly beautiful views of the canyon. The markers are easy enough to see, but you don't really need them, as it's fairly well traveled and you can see footsteps in the sand.

The trail is rated as moderate but I consider it more of an easy trail. It's short and the trail itself is pretty smooth. I would go in the morning or during cooler months; just take plenty of water and sunscreen. The road to the trailhead is narrow in some parts where you cannot see around the curves, so go slow.

Many petroglyphs to see- don't miss this short hike!

Easy fun hike with a lot of petroglyphs and beautiful rock formations. The little “water tank” at the end is pretty neat and boast some great scenery

my favorite spot at valley of fire alot of area to explore dont really need trails

It looks like the trail has been closed off at The Narrows since 2016. There is a huge fence barricade with a dozen signs to keep out. Someone said they crawled around the fence, but someone must have reinforced it because there was no way of getting around without climbing a mountain. Total bummer because all the good stuff is past the fence.

Cool trail down a wash. Didnt see a single sole, and while only a couple of miles from my car it felt so desolate. Really cool experience.

Overlook for Fire Canyon is breathtaking.

Really cool canyon with petroglyphs.

Absolutely delightful trail with beautiful scenery. Some challenging terrain, but nothing a stock vehicle with high enough clearance can't handle. Nice areas for camping along the trail, hiking, and photography.

very pretty short trail. This trail also offers one of the easiest access points into Fire Canyon

very nice, but certainly not my favorite hike in this park

Great walk with the family. The sand is hard to get used to walking in and we all found that it tired our legs out pretty quickly. Make sure you download the map on your phone as there is no marked trail. We got off the trail for a while and had to hike over hills to get back on course. The sand makes for great headstands. Beautiful scenery and we saw lots of little lizards.

Great hike. A little hard to find the actual traihead- it's down in the canyon and gated off with danger signs... After seeing a few people inside, we decided to join by crawling under the fence. The experience was well worth it. Long, narrow canyon winding about a mile with a cool breeze coming through. There was one spot that I needed a boost to get up (short legs) but other than that, a pretty short and easy day hike.

Fun little family trail, great to take off shoes and just walk in the sand.

Beautiful scenery. The colors in the surrounding rocks are incredible

Beautiful trail, rock path was a plus.

Love this trail! Clear path, beautiful scenery, views of Lake, balance of rocky and smooth terrain.

this is definitely a simpler trail to walk and is about 2.5 miles round trip. we had our 3 year old son and our 1 year old German Shepherd with us. We completed the hike in about an hour and a half. the trail is nicely marked out and is nice to walk :) we will do this trail again. it was nice we had our park pass too to save us from paying the 20$ entrance fee (which is good for 7 days).

Nice, easy hike, not too busy and nice views. Park on the side of the road, I didn’t see any signs for the trail, but there were people parked there and you can find the trail easily. We didn’t finish the whole trail, we just went to the riverbed and then walked down it for a while. Cool outcroppings, lizards, birds and bushes that smell like lilacs.

Amazing views. Few signs, so it’s easy to be lost on the trail. GPS is absolutely necessary to stay on the trail. Some strenuous points; dangerous for those with fear of high.

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.

Nice little walk to see petroglyphs

Overgrown with Tamarix. If you’re protected and want to hike through there is still a trail. The entrance is across from the large building on west end. The schoolhouse?
