Don't miss it. Includes a cool slot canyon.

A little difficult at the beginning. It would be easier to start in reverse order and backtrack after one gets past the slot canyon if you have much difficulty in hiking, but... read more

A little difficult at the beginning. It would be easier to start in reverse order and backtrack after one gets past the slot canyon if you have much difficulty in hiking, but this is certainly a fascinating hike. Bring a few bottles of water and linger. There's a Hollywood prop near the beginning of the trail.

Highly recommend this hike with young children. It's pretty short, the kids can climb rocks, and the scenery changes throughout. Lots of photo opportunities. You'll see amazing colors, wild flowers, a mini arch, a slot canyon, and just amazingly colorful rocks.

This is a great hike that is relatively short, about a 1.25 miles. Start in the parking lot and follow the marked trail. The most treacherous part of the hike is at the beginning the steps down can be a little harrowing, but as long as you take your time it's really not that bad. You will then come to... More

The trail begins at the parking lot. There is a rocky, slightly steep beginning to the hike. Be careful and just about anyone can do it. Watch for the old movie set "The Professionals" the crew left behind some remnants of the set. Watch for Cement Cones marking the trail. Not a difficult hike but be aware this is not... More

Well designed one way trail, great sights, wonderful colours, short canyon walk, some steps, well marked. Definitely worth a walk for all.

This is a great, short trail. If it was longer, I would give it 5 stars. Very diverse scenery and rock patterns and colors. The slot canyon halfway through really makes this a great trail. At the end of the trail, just before the road, go up on the rocks for a great vista that looks like another planet.

With many needed breaks for pictures, the hike took us exactly 45 minutes. Awesome scenery, a must do when in the Valley of Fire

This is a really nice day trip with plenty to see and do. A word of warning, if you want to do the trail unless you happen to be an experienced hiker do know that there will be some climbing. Prepare well for the heat as there is very little shade around to cool off. The easier way to do... More

The White Domes Trail has a lot to offer. There are tons of different colors in the rocks and the views are tremendous. There is a small slot canyon to enjoy, and there are even some leftover movie props to be seen along the trail. Best of all, the drive to reach the hike is the best in the park... More

First hike we did in the Park, not strenuous or too challenging, did it March 21st, was hot 81, needed sun screen and water. Good parking at the trail head, Clean out-houses. Starts out with a short sandy rise and then descends down a rocky path into the canyon. The hike into the canyon is the most difficult part but... More
