Bowl Of Fire

Bowl of Fire is located at Lake Mead National Recreation Area and is in the Muddy Mountains Wilderness Area. The Bowl of Fire is comprised of brightly colored red, pink and orange Jurassic-Age sandstone outcrops which are surrounded by gray limestone mountains. The limestone is the bowl and the red sandstone is the fire. Parking is at mile maker 18 just before Northshore Peak, the trail goes West across the desert.

Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the United States. It is located on the Colorado River about 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the states of Nevada and Arizona. Formed by water impounded by Hoover Dam, Lake Mead extends 112 miles behind the dam, holding approximately 28.5 million acre feet of water, making it one of the largest-capacity reservoirs in the Northern Hemisphere. Lake Mead, with its 550 miles of shoreline, is the focal point of Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
