Valley of Fire is open sunrise to sunset. You need to be in or near your vehicle by sunset. An entrance fee of $8 for Nevada residents or $10 for non-residents is required.

Need to Know

There is a $10 fee per vehicle to enter the park. This area can get extremely hot; carry plenty of water and avoid running during the hottest time of the day.

Description

This is a short run around an interesting rock formation at the eastern edge of the Valley of Fire State Park. The highlight of the loop is the Elephant Rock (you can't miss it), which is right next to the road a short distance into the loop.

The trail surface is mostly sandstone with a few sandy areas.
