On my way to Vegas, I spotted the sign for Valley of Fire State Park and once again found myself exploring some great trails just 1 hour North of the big city. Valley of Fire is Nevada's biggest and oldest state park. Most of the trails are shorter loops and out and backs to historical sites, including one with petroglyphs. The Arrowhead Trail is a 6 mile point to point trail (12 miles total), which was what I ran, as well as a smaller loop by Elephant Rock (see pic). Temperatures were around 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit with a nice breeze, perfect. I also visited Lake Mead, a huge recreation area just a few miles down the road on a short bike ride. Here are some pictures from my day!
