Valley of Fire

Hiking amongst red sandstones

Valley of Fire is the oldest state park in Nevada, established in 1935. The area is made up of so-called red sandstones and desert. The park is ideal for hiking and walking around. There are several different paths to choose from. When we were here we went mostly outside the regular paths and it was fantastic! Don’t forget to bring plenty of water.

By car

It takes about an hour to drive from the Las Vegas Strip to Valley of Fire. If you are not interested in walking it is possible to drive around the park and watch the landscape from the car. We recommend walking though.

Animal life

The Valley of Fire has an interesting animal life. It may be a little difficult to spot. A rare animal too see is the desert tortoise which is protected by Nevada law. Steppe wolf, desert fox, snake and others are also here but the most common animals you will see are squirrels and various lizards.

Small fee

When you enter the park you must pay a small fee of $10 per car. Bring exact change. If you want to stay longer than a day, there are campsites that can be used for an additional fee.
