Short steep walk to a fenced in petrified log. Not really too amazing.

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

Nice relatively flat trek out to some interesting stripped rock formations. Entire trail is open with little or no shade and could be extremely hot during certain times of the day or year. This early morning early September walk was very pleasant

Short and easy

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.

Lots of Petroglyphs to see! Short trail but the sand makes it just challenging enough for someone on their first hike like me!

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.

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.
