Written Directions

This route starts in Northeast Vegas and runs in a loop northeast of the city. From Las Vegas: I-15 to Valley of Fire State park exit. Continue through the park and hit Hwy 167 towards Lake Mead. Right on 167 will take you back towards Hoover Dam/ Henderson/Las Vegas. At the end of 167 you can go left to Hoover Dam or right towards Henderson. Pick up Boulder Highway back to Vegas.

Scenery

Awesome scenery throughout the ride. Views of unusual rock formations and parts of Lake Mead are visible from several parts of the route.

Drive Enjoyment

Interstate 15 portion is good, state park road is good, the desert harshness has not been kind to Hwy 167. Not impassable, but a few bumps in the road got our attention. Hold on!

Tourism Opportunities

Amenities are more plentiful at the beginning and end of the route around Las Vegas. Once off the interstate, not much available. The State Park has restrooms and a small visitor center and scenic waysides.

My wife, Nicole, and I took the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful weather and hit the road. This is a beautiful ride with various twists and turns and phenomenal views through the Valley of Fire. As geocachers, we also picked up a couple eartcache's along the way. Overall the roads are well maintained with limited waterboarding.

This Ride is amazing! You gt to ride through 2 National Parks in 1 Ride!! Both of which are amazing. Be prepared to pay the fee for the Lake Meade Recreation area when you enter. It is not much. I buy the year pass for all parks. Lots of winding roads and turns make this ride fun in addition to the incredible scenery! This is in my backyard, so I frequent these roads. Today I did the official route, but backwards as described based on where I live and my starting position. Fuel up before entering. Either at the station on the I 15 or on Lake Meade blvd before you enter the park. There is no fuel inside the park. There MANY stoping points for photos and restrooms. I HIGHLY recommend this route and I am lucky I live so close to it.

This is one of my favorite rides. Absolutely stunning country. Do not miss this if you are in the Vegas area. It is only a couple hours or as long as you want it to be. Valley of Fire is one of the most beautiful places around, and the ride along Lake Meade is serene. You will not be disappointed.
