“An easy trail in the Valley of Fire that ends with the "Fire Wave"; featuring the beautifully colorful desert sandstone.”— Mirek Wierzbicki
The trail is easy and everybody can make it as it's only 0.6 miles one way. It is well-marked. First, there is a section with deep sand before some solid rock slopes. Heading east/southeast, it mostly downhill until Fire Wave Rock.
Fire Wave itself is beautiful! The natural patterns in the rock and shape of the formation really makes you feel like you’re standing on a wave. It is well-worth the trip.
