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

These rock formations are neat. You can easily view these from your car or like to get a closer look.

Thus is so cool to see and easy to pick out. Most flat and sandy. Lots of shade. Read board at beginning of trail to understand what you are looking at. Glad we stopped.

This is probably the first trail so many stop here to walk it, as did we. Not a short trail but not the longest either. We didn't really enjoy the trail. Soft sand makes it harder.

This is a very good hike from the parking area to this attraction. It is a nice pathway with some signs to guide you. The views and sights along the way are great.

Mouses' Tank is just one of many hiking areas in the Valley of Fire. The entire area is amazing. Wear appropriate clothing and be sure you stay hydrated. Hat and sunblock is a must.

Visited Valley Of Fire State Park in August, with 100+ degree heat. Long hikes were not safe, but this short walk was easy, and even in the heat, not unbearable. There are LOTS of petroglyphs along the way. While you're walking, you need to look...More

There is parking but because it is a hike back to the Mouse Tank, I would suggest having something to block the sand when the wind is blowing. It is very fine sand and a face scarf would be a good idea because the wind can... More
