not much hiking. You can almost drive up to the cabins. We hiked farther up and it was pretty. Some scrambling was necessary to go farther back.

short trail easy for kids and pets. Was easy to get lost. It's right off the road.

easy short hike for kids and pets to see lots of amazing petroglyphs. The sand is hot for pets, be careful. We saw 4 big horn sheep!

Quick trip up the stairs to see some great petroglyphs. Good for adults and children.

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 hike with a great reward at the end. Beautiful natural formation. Worth the easy hike from the road.

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

Path definitely could use some better marking as it was difficult to find our way to the end. Bring some water as you are out in the heat with minimal to no shade

WOW!! Me fascinó hermoso lugar.

Un paseo muy hermoso me encantó.

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.

Great little trail for the kids. Saw a handful of good sized lizards. Just long enough to "get a hike in", but not TOO long for little ones. We've got 5, the littlest two being 2 & 3, and they did great.

We didn’t make the the entire trail length because of time constraints. We made it a little over 3.25 miles in before turning around (parked at the south entrance). It took us about 3 hours to for the 6.5 miles, and I’m a slower hiker.
Trail was pretty clearly marked except a small patch or two when you had to scramble up or down some boulders. I enjoyed it and would like to make it the whole way. It was phenomenally gorgeous!

Amazing Experience

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.

Neat, quick hike.

A fun little trail with an easily accessible slot canyon. Great family hike.

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

It's a pretty nice hike and if you're already at the park, it's worth seeing. Parking is crowded. The patterns the rocks make are pretty cool. Downside is that, until the end, there's not much to see along this trail.

Nice easy hike with the cool fire wave rocks at the end. The path could have been marked a bit clearer as we went a bit off course but still worth checking out.

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.

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!

Neat cabins built in 1935, with a nice covered picnic area to the side.

Neat climb up a staircase to get a close look. But there is also more petroglyphs to look at all around the bottom of the mountain.

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.

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.

Wow! Technically speaking only base on Fire Wave Trail - Nice. Small thought. The Trail is Easy, big rocks plus the “Fire Wave (like) Rocks” are just cool, watch your step the rocks are rigid but other than that it’s something different. Sit, relax and clear your mind.

Very quick and easy hike with cool views of the rocks in the park. Would be an easy hike to pair with another longer hike for the day. Lots of water needed as most of the hike is in the sun.
