What a great day trip. We drove out from the Las Vegas trip, about an hour to get there. Great hiking, really interesting pyroglyphics, and the rock formations are so cool. Bring lots of water if you go in the summer time, bring your sunscreen and be prepared to be wowed!

Wonderful, stunning scenery. About 30-40 min drive from Vegas and well worth the trip. Includes a trail for you to drive to stop at varied scenic views and for the more adventurous a number of hikes, make sure you have decent footwear and plenty to drink for these.

We visited the Valley of Fire from Hoover Dam, timing the visit for the late afternoon/early evening when the colours would be at their brightest and the shadows at their longest. The Valley is beautiful and we only passed a few other cars even in August. Very relaxing and atmospheric: peace and quiet after a few uncomfortable days in Las... More

Lots of interesting rocks. Nice visitor centre. A good spot for a hike. Also a welcome relief from the nonsense of Vegas.

Sandra, one of the security folks was particularly helpful in explaining the natural phenomena in this park. It is beyond words. You have to go and see it for yourself. No wonder they filmed Star Trek footage there. You might expect a Xindi or a Klingon to pop out from a cave any second. It is out of this world... More

On our way to Bryce, we stopped in and were amazed. It was HOT and we were unwilling to hike, but the scenery was beautiful. It's amazing to see land that looks so prehistoric and ancient. I took a bunch of pictures and still look at them amazed. It was a fabulous precursor to what was to come further up... More

There is some cool stuff to see if you want to see more than the Vegas hotels and casinos. Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon (be super careful with young children due to unexpected heights and no warnings) and Valley of Fire. You feel like you're on a another planet here. Very cool!

I visited on my own to this place. There was no danger of traveling alone, I felt safe & happy. I was packed ready to go. Please pack according to outdoor one day hiking. Camelback, ice cold water in an ice chest (which I had in my car trunk), snacks, and an extra set of clothes. It was hot!!! Definitely... More
