Visited in mid February, it was a good time to go before the summer heat set in. It was the best time to visit as we were able to do most of the hikes with very little discomfort. For a small state park it has a lot to see we ended up spending about 4 1/2 to 5 hours enjoying the park. The wave is just a short hike from the parking lot and if you don't have time for other hikes or much viewing I suggest you see this. The Petrified trees are pretty large specimens, I would have loved to see them when they were living. There are some pretty amazing petroglyphs so take the time to see them also. If you go in the summer take plenty of water as this area experiences some extreme temperatures and try to be here early in the day.

We stopped at the Fire Wave in the Valley of Fire State Park on a drive from Las Vegas to Southern Utah. The park is about an hour from Las Vegas. The hike out to the Fire Wave itself is actually not that long and fairly easy. The Fire Wave is a Sandstone rock formation with interesting striped layers. It makes for some nice pictures, and driving through the park provides for interesting scenery.

Although the Fire Wave isn't quite as spectacular as other rock formations in Utah and Arizona, such as The Wave, it's a fun hike and relatively easy to access. Part of the hike is through sand, but it's not too strenuous. I would recommend stopping to anyone with some extra time and an enjoyment of natural beauty.

One of the best hikes in the Valley of Fire State Park. Easy 1.5 mile out and back trail. Very cool rock formations. Very popular hike on a Saturday morning in late February. Parking at trailhead easy at 1030am when i arrived but was pretty full by 1p.

Fire wave trail is closed until October 1st 2021.
If someone is going all the way out to this park they should know their limits.
Trail is best in the afternoon and there is no shade anywhere.
Since the park has had to rescue these idiots they closed the trail to save funds.

I hiked the Fire Wave in conjunction with Seven Wonders. In my opinion, this is by far the best hike in Valley of Fire State Park. I did it mid-morning in early May and it was not too hot. To state what is probably obvious, pick a time and season when the heat is not oppressive. The colors and rock formations were spectacular. Having the All Trails app would be helpful, as the trail is not always clearly marked.

One of the best hiking trails one could ever take. The 1.5 mile round trip excursion was well worth the time. The scenery is beyond jaw dropping.

My family and I did the Seven Wonders loop and finished at Fire Wave. We had the entire area to ourselves when we first arrived. It was magical! If you are hiking to Fire Wave only and back to the parking lot, the hike is pretty short and not too difficult. Definitely a must-see if you are in the area!

This is a small rock formation with striking beauty only a short hike away from the paved road. Be mindful that because it attracts a lot of avid photographers, it may take some time for you to have your photo op. Anyway, take some time to just glance the beauty of it.

Be sure to have a lot of battery life in your camera because this is shot, shot, shot. If these are the Waves in Kanab, you must pay $5 and enter a lottery, as only 30 people are allowed each day.

Lots to see at Valley of Fire State Park, but this right here should be at the top of the list. It is a 1.5 mile, moderate hike with an end point that will leave you breathless. Take lots of water. Even though it's only 1.5 miles, there is no shade.
