Took a hummer tour with Desert Fox tours, and we were so happy! Beautiful location! Even my apathetic teenage boy was so excited about the trip. Plan enough time to climb and explore.

Rode through on motorcycles. This time of year was nice. Weather and traffic were good. Although we didn't hike around, this State Park is ideal for it
TAKE A CAMERA.

Magnificent, Petroglyph's along an ancient riverbed, tell a story of life thousands of years ago. Beautiful photographic opportunities everywhere you look! Well worth the drive North of Las Vegas..

Never mind going to Red Rock Canyon if you have a car...Travel to Valley of Fire State Park. Not far north east of the city past the racetrack along they way and real nice roads to drive in the desert. Entrence fee of 7$ per car is really not much for what you are going to experience! Red rock formations, plants, and easy hiking to the the professional who like climbing. An outstanding place for a full day of excitment for everyone to enjoy a real Wow. AND remember PROTECT the desert and observe the rules. The rules are given to you when paying the fee of 7$ dollars. Have a wonderful Day!!

Pictures and written reviews can not do this place justice. Each time I visit this park I am overwhelmed by the awesome scenery. The visitors center tells the story of the park. This trip we hiked the trail at white domes. The narrow slot canyon opens up to the remains of an old movie set from the early 1960's. Most hikes in the park are fairly short, less than 2 miles. The roads are well paved and the parking areas at each trails are clearly marked. Most trails include areas with fine sand which makes the hike unique. The park is a pleasant 1 hour drive from downtown Vegas. It's a great break from the casinos and well worth the time.
