Great place to hike and see some hidden treasures such as petroglyphs and shapes carved by ancient waters in the stone. Beware of the various animal life and ensure you read up on the place before you go. And take water... lots and lots of water!

This past visit was my fifth visit to Las Vegas in recent years. We like to do a mixture of activities while in Vegas. A hotel employee told me about the Valley of Fire. I couldn't believe I had never heard about such a beautiful treasure. The exit off I15 took us into an Indian Reservation Chevron fuel stop. We... More

Worth the approximately one hour drive from Las Vegas. Easy to combine this trip with a visit to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. There are many places to stop and take pictures and it is a very short walk to see petroglyphs. There are longer more challenging hikes as well as shorter hikes (including one through a small canyon).... More

This is a beautiful area in Nevada. This whole area was under water at one time and then places heaved up to leave beautiful rock formations. Spend the afternoon out here, you will not be disappointed.

Valley of Fire is a great park to check out. The park has official hours but the park is always open and the price of entry is worth the drive through the park. If you are into hiking they have plenty of trails, just make sure you bring plenty of water with you since there are not that many places... More

The spectacular scenery rewards you for visiting Nevada's first state park following a long drive on a two-lane road off I-15. At first, you wonder if the drive is justified. Believe me, it is. The rock formations and sandy trails are worth seeing and exploring. Don't forget your camera. Even on a 103 degree afternoon, you become awestruck by the... More

If you are tired of gambling in Vegas take yourself a lil' side trip to the Valley of Fire. Beautiful red and orange scenery. Just imagine how difficult the trip to the west would have been for those with wagons.

Valley of Fire is a relatively small state park, in the desert setting up of red rock formations, which the park takes its name - the reflection of light rays give the impression that the rocks burn . In addition to these impressive rocks, visitors can discover petrified trees or petroglyphs dating from prehistoric times. . Carved by wind and... More

Let me start by saying it was worth the drive...it's not that far from Vegas (maybe 75 min). However, thanks to massive record-setting flooding the day before, 20 miles of the interstate was closed. So, this 75 min turned into backtracking, dead-locks and lots of long-ways. That all being said, the six hour drive was STILL worth it. Even if... More

Well worth the $10 entry fee per car. The views were stunning and all the information boards gave great detail and also details of trails etc if you wanted to walk about. Don't wear flip flops though! I tried to walk in the sand to go down to Mouse's tank, but had to give up - the sand was so... More
