This hike really takes in the beauty of the area. It has a lot going for it. Great photography, easy flat hike but can be ramped up with climbing the mountains on the side of the trails. Areas of sun & shade. Of course there is the "Mouse tank" (We don't want to give everything away).

This was a very easy hike until the very end. The side of the rock is a bit steep to climb if you want to view the mouse tank from the top, however you can walk to the side and look without climbing the rock.

There are park maps available when you pay your entry fee. It's worth hitting all the major forks off the road, including to Mouse's Tank.

This is a wonderful hike. Simple, level and not difficult. Watch your step for rocks in the sand and you'll be fine. Look for the petroglyphs throughout the canyon. Some of the best we've seen. Mouse's Tank is a open rock well at the end of the trail. Read or google it to find out why they call it Mouse's... More

A nice quick trail that is about 3/4th of a mile, not bad! When you reach the end you can climb up some rocks and see the tank where rain water has collected. The view at the top is nice. Throughout the trail there were petroglyphs and the trail is soft and sandy.

So glad we took this short walk from the main access route and climbed to mouses talk. The views and scenery were worth every step! We were lucky that it was water filled when we reached it. It only took 15 minutes to walk and wasn't difficult. We were lucky with the January weather, sunny and clear skies. Absolutely beautiful... More

As the sedentary sister, I had no problems walking this trail and enjoyed the hieroglyphics and rock formations

This short trek in the Valley of Fire was definitely worth the visit, especially to see the numerous hieroglyphs from so long ago. You will get red sand in and on your shoes because it is so fine on the trail. My only words of caution would be to bring drinking water (this IS the desert) and beware of the... More

If you are into petroglyphs, do not miss this short easy hike ... it is great! If it is too hot to hike cross the street and there is rock art just to the left of the parking lot.

This is one of the more popular short hikes. In addition to being up close and personal with these magnificent rock formation, this trail offers some of the best views of the Petrography in the park. These ancient writings date back several thousand years and are a reminder of the evolution of the settlers in the area. The hike is... More
