Great spot!

Mouse' Tank is a great spot in this wonderful park. You can easily spend 3-4 hours walking around to get the best photos.

Do not visit this sight in July! Even August may be pushing it. We traveled by car to the Mouse's Tank sight, then walked as far as the heat would allow but did not see the actual "tank". There were petroglyphs and unique rock formations but we couldn't enjoy them due to the heat. Also how and where to pay... More

Great hike! My husband loved finding all of the petroglyphs and making guesses about the message they might have been sending. As a huge bonus, we saw a Gila monster, tarantula, and big horn sheep along the way! This short hike was a highlight of our family vacation.

The story behind the name is pretty interesting. The hike is okay, but pales in comparison to other hikes in the park. There are a lot of petroglyphs on this trail, if you are interested in those. The tank itself is small and kind of neat, but the hike is a little boring (compared to the rest of the park)... More

After spending some time hiking in the Red Rock Formations we decided to hike into Mouses's Tank primarily to see the petroglyphs. We were not disappointed as this was a hike that was petroglyph after petroglyph. Highly recommend making the hike all the way back to the historic pool of water.

This is one of the trails in the park. It's not far to walk but walking in the sand makes it quite hard. It gets very hot, it was over the 100 mark when i went so take plenty of water and a hat. You get to see some interesting petroglyphs on the way, they are about 150 yard down... More

This is one of the trails in Valley of Fire State Park. There are petroglyphs on the walls of the trail. There are colorful native plants in the spring. This is not a summer walk unless you can handle the heat, have plenty of water, a hat and sunscreen.

Mouse's Tank is a small attraction close to the scenic road in Valley Of Fire State Park, NEVADA. The Trail is less then a mile round trip and is on flat but very sandy surface. You walk in the narrow canyon but it not a slot canyon hike. It is very hot in the park most time of the year... More

An easy trek for kids and adults who want an introduction into the beauty of nature and the red rocks of Valley of Fire. Avoid all of the valley during the heat of summer but this canyon, with high canyon walls on either side, affords some shade.

Walking on sand is not fun as it is, but getting to the mouses tank is not as cool as I thought it would be. Along the way the writing on the rocks were cool. So if you destination is the Tank, make sure to stop and find all the pictures along the way.
