Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada

Petroglyphs tell stories in the Valley of Fire

Located just 58 miles from Las Vegas, the petroglyphs in the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada are evidence of early settlers long before the formation of Las Vegas. While the petroglyphs are roughly around 2500 years old, less obvious signs of settlement suggest that people had inhabited the area even more thousands of years ago. Valley of Fire petroglyphs can be seen clearly at Atlatl Rock, and they can also be seen on the Mouse’s Tank trail.
