Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada, United States

Moderate:6.7 miles, 1-3 hours
A Valley of Fire loop hike with great views and water - year round.

This is a hike to a spring that has water year round. The spring seeps out of the ground and runs in a small stream through some grasses that result from this water in an otherwise dry area. There are numerous cat tails and tamarisk. There is evidence of recent rains bringing down mud and gravel when the water ran quickly down the wash to the east.

North Twin River Road Trail is a 6.5 mile out and back trail located near Round Mountain, NV that features beautiful wild flowers and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers.
