Valley of Fire Hiking Tour from Las Vegas

Valley of Fire Hiking Tour from Las Vegas

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. 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!

Excellent guide I got to hike with Moshe and a small company that chooses to do great for its customers. I thoroughly enjoyed the day's activity. Chose the 'Easy' for reasons of time, but happened to be the only one on the tour that day and Love Hikes didn't even cancel - I got a personal hike and tour!.
Moshe offered to do the 'Difficult' route for me in the same time as the 'Easy', hence I got to do the rarer trails, where I got some tough terrain and unique spots and far-off-the-tourist-path sights. I loved the challenge and Moshe was very knowledgeable about the different species of shrubs, Native American carvings/hieroglyphics and desert scape. I'd recommend this to anyone and everyone that wants to do something other than just walk the strip.

Adam was an amazing tour guide on my trip to the valley of fire. Picked me up on time at my hotel. There were only two more people taking the tour with me, so it was a great private tour and didn't have to worry about other people falling behind. Adam has a wealth of information about the valley and took us off the beaten track as soon as possible. We didn't see another people the entire 4hrs we were out there. I would recommend and take another tour with Love Hikes next time I'm in Vegas and book it through Viator, it was very easy and the pricing was perfect. Thank you!

My tour with Love Hikes was awesome. Adam was my guide and he told me about the wildlife, the vegetation and was very knowledgeable. Amazing views and the sound of absolute silence when you sat still for a moment to rest and have a drink of water. which was frequent!

My husband and I did the moderate hike with Dan the tour was amazing, really well thought out, loads of information and the park is breathtaking! Dan has a real passion for what he was doing and clearly loves the area. He regularly checked on everyone within the group and made sure we all kept well hydrated and provided regular snacks. The hike was documented with a gopro camera by Dan and we all have a link to the photo's of our very special day this was a lovely touch. We will be returning when we are in Vegas again to do the more advanced hike and would highly recommend this tour!

Beauty away from the Vegas strip! Our guide Adam was awesome. He took us off the trail to see what the park really had to offer. The sights and the peace and quiet were awe inspiring! This is a must when in Vegas to get off the stripe and into nature!

Brilliant Tour, Guides were very knowledgeable about the area and flexible on route and difficulty of the activity. Great bonus is they take photographs for you and email them to you.

This tour was more than I was expecting, which was great!! Adam, the tour guide, did an excellent job of taking the group off the path and pushing out comfort level without being unsafe. I treated my father to the tour, and wasn't sure he would like it. He ended up loving it! Go on this tour!
