Access off Kahle Rd or Elk Pt Dr. Lots of loops, paved or dirt to wander through the trees, meadows or to the beach. Very pretty any time of year. Wildflowers, dog and kid friendly.

From the tollgate decided to start this scenic drive to Arch Rock; adjacent to the dirt road and a few hundred feet away was Atlatl Rock, then continued to Seven Sisters, the Cabins, Petroglyph Log, finally to Elephant Rock. Backtracked to Rainbow Vista, White Dome Trail, Mouse's Tank and finally Beehives. To really explore Valley of Fire you need to campout one night. One day is not enough to see all the trails. This is a must see place, definitely add to your list. If anybody were planning to see this place, White Dome Trail is a must see. If you went here and didn't hike that trail? you will totally miss out.

The trail is moderate due to the course gravel and rocks that line most of this trail. We spent the night near the cabin and spring.

Indeed the best trail in Valley of Fire. You owe it to yourself to see this trail, if you didn't? you totally missed out what the Valley of Fire experience was all about. Truly a must see.

The girls went to see a show at Bellagio, went for a night walk to Aria instead. Nice stroll one of those short pants and t-shirt weather.

Depending how you plan your route this site is either the first stop or the last stop. In our case it was the last stop before returning to Vegas. Similar to Seven Sisters. Interesting rock formations at this site.
