Valley of Fire State Park Things to Do: 87 reviews and 144 photos
The next stop is at Rainbow Vista. The park brochure claims this is a favorite photo point due to the various colorful sandstone formations in the area. I decided to walk a trail here out into the desert for some more scenery. The trail is well marked with a number of signs. Eventually, you can decide to loop back to the parking lot (total distance was under a half mile) or continue down a gully to a view of Fire Canyon. I took the spur trail to the canyon. This trail was a little trickier - it wasn't as well marked (although you really can't get lost since it is in a small canyon), and I had to do a few scrambles down and up. At the end, there is a payoff with a nice view of Fire Canyon. Then, it's back the way you came, and finish off the original trail back to the parking lot. Note, I was alone almost the entire trip, a great place for you and your thoughts...
