Explore some of the best Valley of Fire has to offer. From slot canyons, to giant rock domes, this trail traverses through an extremely scenic and diverse area. 

The White Domes Loop Trail is at the end of Mouse's Tank Road. Travel north from the visitor center until you get to the White Domes Parking Lot. 

This short loop trail wanders through short slot canyons and towering sandstone formations. From the parking lot, head south down the sandstone steps. At the bottom, you will see the remains of the movie set from The Professionals. From here, follow the signs through the wash leading into a short slot canyon. Once out of the slot canyon, turn right and take the trail looping back to the parking lot. 

The trail is dog friendly, but make sure your pup is on a leash.

Do not miss out! Beautiful place and not many people. Take your time walking through the canyon, goes by fast but so worth it. Easy walk and so many beautiful sites.

A short hike with a fascinating landscape. The White Domes contrasts much of the rest of Valley of Fire, giving a different experience from other trails. The addition of a small slot canyon adds to its uniqueness. It's easy to see why movies like Star Trek have used the White Domes to film scenes here that look like far off planets.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
