The West entrance of Valley of Fire State Park is located approximately forty-five minutes North of the famous Las Vegas Strip in Southern Nevada. Its location makes for an easy day trip and the directions couldn’t be easier, simply go North on Interstate 15 from las Vegas and take a right on Valley of Fire Highway and you are there! You will find yourself inspired from the moment you start seeing the bright red Aztec sandstone surrounded by the gray and tan limestone mountains! You have found red rock country!
Once inside the park, take the first left. This nice two-mile scenic loop takes you past Arch Rock and Atlatl Rock where you can see an outstanding group of petroglyphs up close….
