This was one of the spots I selected ahead of time to stop and hike in the Valley of Fire. Walking on rock and in sand so closed shoes are ideal. Some climbing is possible but not necessary to enjoy this scenic spot. We spent...More

We heard about Mouse's Tank (basically a hidden water basin) from the interesting story of an Indian who supposedly killed a settler then hid out in the blazing summer heat for 6 months by drinking from this hidden water source only to be captured and...More

There is parking but because it is a hike back to the Mouse Tank, I would suggest having something to block the sand when the wind is blowing.
