  • We have been there on the road, and could very well cope with the trail! Also pleasant temperatures, it is important to take enough water with you! You can explore rock painting! Wonderful nature!

  • The short(ish) walk to the tank is fantastic. Lots of petroglyphs and a great feel for a small canyon. The tank itself is OK for the history but don't get too excited  more »
  • the scenic drive through Valley of fire comes along most of the highlights in this park, so really to see the most beautiful hiking points is not necessary, you are however of the adventure you can certainly get lost quickly in the nature where you have no other persons will encounter.

  • Mouse's Tank is the main destination of the Petroglyph Canyon Trail. I like it most for the scenic beauty, but there are etchings to be seen and the historic hiding place of the outlaw. It is ungodly hot in summer. Off-season is more pleasant.
  • August 2017, Great trail with lizards and historic writings. Bring water, short hike in and out but hot.
  • Very nice trail through a semi slot canyon. It is partially shaded, but you hike through lots of sand. There are some petroglyphs, and the Mouse's Tank is pretty neat. It does get very busy though.
  • Busy, lots of kids, some trash. Clean pit toilets. Short trail offers easy exploration of features. Petroglyphs easily found through the spurs.
  • Every time I go to Las Vegas I manage to visit the Valley of Fire, particularly Mouse's Tank. The short, easy walk is loaded with old indian petroglyphs. A beautiful place!
