  • A short and somewhat sandy trail. Not far to the Mouses Tank - easy for most ages. The tanks are OK and there are some petroglyohs along the way if you can spot them. Worth a few minutes but don;t mis...  more »

  • A beautiful spot that, in my opinion, needs to be left alone in the summer heat. There is little shade and the sand will burn your feet too.  more »

  • 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!
  • Great little place to trek to and interesting to hear the story of how it got it's name. Ruined, only on the day, by some sort of corporate team building event being held by Monster drinks.
  • If you like Red Rock, then this will blow your mind. Every rock has a shape of anything that you can think of.
