Valley of Fire

 

Valley of Fire is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park, dedicated in 1935. The State Park is 55 miles northeast of Las Vegas via Interstate 15 on exit 75. The Valley of Fire derives its name from red sandstone formations, formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of the dinosaurs, 150 million years ago. These features, which are the centerpiece of the park's attractions, often appear to be on fire when reflecting the sun's rays.
