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.

Well done tour, easy shuttle and great hike! Great scenery, great trails for the average hiker, great tour guiding frim Sarah, she knows her stuff.
We had a great time hiking. Our guide, Sarah, was the best. Very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. A great guide. The beauty of the area was a pleasant surprise. I am glad we ventured out the Vegas for the afternoon.
My husband and I are so glad we booked this hike. Not too hard, not too easy, about 5 hours from start to finish with the drive included. BREATHTAKING views! Our guide, Sarah, was awesome. We definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to get away from the strip. You won’t be disappointed!
I'm so glad I went on this tour for the Valley of Fire! I chose the Intense/Difficult option since I'm an avid hiker at home and was very satisfied with the level of intensity of the hike, as well as the knowledge of our guide Yvette, and the scenery we got to see. Not only were we hiking, but we climbed some rocks and navigated through different spaces you wouldn't normally know how to do or where to go. I don't normally like guided tours but this one fantastic and actually a highlight of my trip to Las Vegas! Would highly recommend the morning tour since it is not as hot, and there are less people at the park so you feel like you have the whole place to yourself!
This is a must do activity. The trip out is not too long and the hike is so beautiful and exciting!! The spirit of the formations and the brilliant blue sky was breathtaking. I loved it. The hike was perfect. Not too easy and not too difficult but just perfect and good for the body and soul to be challenged a little!! Sarah was our guide and she was fun, informative and caring. I would do it again today if I could!!! Thank you!!
I can not say enough about this hike. It’s not easy peasy but not very difficult either. It’s the most amazing place I’ve ever seen in my life. Antonio you are amazing, thank you. My fellow hikers were a dull bunch, apart from 2 or 3 of them, but apart from that, if I could give it a 10 I would. Weather was awesome too.
Excellent trip with Ben. We did a lot of scrambling up and down slot canyons, into caves and up small mountains. Ben was careful to discretely check out everyone's ability and comfort zones and led the way with care. It was a great adventure and we saw lots of nature and some amazing petroglyphs. Picked up on time and got back in good time.
We took this hiking tour in mid October and the experience was wonderful. Sarah was our guide and was exceptional in determining our skill level and adjusting the hike as needed. She took us to places we never would have explored on our own. Also, her knowledge of the area and flora was great and informative. We highly recommend this tour. Jeannie and Stan
Booked up an easy afternoon tour, it was so good I got back to my hotel and booked a moderate morning tour. By far the best days out I've ever had in Vegas i will highly recommend this trip. And the group's are so small the guides very knowledgeable absolutely fantastic . In fact when we go back in a couple of years we will be doing this again.
Antonio is very knowledgeable, informative, and really considerate. Antonio took us on an interesting hiking path, making sure we were hydrated, breaks and most of all...having fun! Thank you!
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. Our guide John was a exceptional guide, a pleasure to be with. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, experienced and eager to point out attractions along the way as soon as we left the hotel. We absolutely enjoyed the drive to the park which was a sight seeing tour in itself and once we reached the park the sights were stunning , John pointed out all the local plants and herbs as well as local animal that were around. The whole experience was well worth the effort and cost. We took a half day afternoon easy hike which was just right for us. Ask for John on your trip you will be very happy you did.
I was in a group of 3, hard am tour, with John as guide, who took us on a fantastic completely unique off-the-trail route. John was a great guide, carrying our snacks/water and making the experience very personable and interesting. Views were amazing. Couldn't recommend enough! Thanks John+LoveHike!
Best nature escape. The guide was fantastic, the landscape was breathtaking.
Chad was an excellent guide and it was a beautiful day to spend hiking and rock scrambling, was not sure about the scrambling but I did enjoy the challenge. It was an excellent experience and the pictures came out amazing!
Valley of Fire has spectacular multicolor rock formations and blue blue skies. Chad, our guide for Love Hikes difficult afternoon hike led us off trail up and down the formations like kids on a jungle gym. Great views. Good exercise. Chad brought water and snacks. Occasionally over the 5 hour hike Chad led the more adventurous couple up for even greater views. I was happy for a chance to sit and enjoy the scenery.
Sunset was beautiful against the colorful rocks at end of hike. The road out of Valley of Fire park showed us two foxes, a bighorn sheep, and several tiny mice. We were happy hikers.
Chad was great, knowledgeable, and patient guide. I would definitely recommend this hike to everybody, just get enough rest beforehand :
The Valley of Fire State Park is amazing. We had a great trip. John, our guide, was fantastic. He’s filled with all kinds of knowledge, and eager to share. We learned about formations,plant life, and local animals. And the views are wonderful. I recommend this trip.
Dan was awesome..... I still talk about this hike, seeing the bighorn sheep, petroglyphs, learning about the area all Amazing!!!!
Would recommend this to everyone who enjoys the outdoors, wildlife, fresh air and beautiful scenery.
This trip with Love Hikes was the BEST ever! John who guided me and this one other person was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. He knew the hike trails extremely well and ensured we got our monies worth. It was a 2 hour hike which was wonderful. I had so much fun that I wished it was 3 hours! In all it was a memorable experience from the scenery to the experience from the get go! Highly recommend them! Will definitely do this again if I am ever back in Vegas. I did the moderate level btw.
