What You Can Expect

After pickup from your Las Vegas hotel at sunrise, in the late morning or in the early afternoon, travel by jeep or van 55 miles (89 km) to Valley of Fire State Park, the oldest state park in Nevada. On the way, pass Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Nellis Air Force Base. If you wish, you can stop at Moapa River Indian Reservation to shop for duty-free liquor, cigarettes and fireworks. As you approach the entrance to the park, you'll glimpse Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake in the United States.

Once inside Valley of Fire State Park, your friendly and knowledgeable guide leads you to the trailhead for your selected hike. (See options below.) During your 4-, 5- or 6-hour tour, your guide tells you about the geological forces — including faulting and erosion — that created the distinctive red rock formations. Hear about the various American Indian tribes that have called the park home for thousands of years. You'll have periodic breaks to take photos of the gorgeous natural landscape and recharge with complimentary snacks and water.

Following your hike, take a short tour of the Valley of Fire State Park visitor center to learn more about the park before the hour-long drive back to your Las Vegas hotel.

Easy Hike: This hike is great for families and is suitable for all ages and fitness levels who can complete a 2-hour hike. An easy walk allows you to see some of the many ancient petroglyphs in the park.

Moderate Hike: This moderate hike takes you at a leisurely pace; a good level of fitness is required. Explore the dramatic red rock formations that give the park its name while you scramble and climb through boulders, crevasses, brush, peaks and plateaus.

Difficult Hike: More intense then the shorter hikes, this option is recommended for avid hikers. You’ll cover more challenging terrain for the most captivating views!
