Seven Sisters at Valley of Fire State Park
Seven Sisters Overview
Seven Sisters is a stop-off from the road and not a “hike,” which I classify on the site with other areas as a “point of interest.” The area showcases a group of seven sandstone boulders surrounded by sand.
There are several areas of covered and uncovered picnic tables and some of them have grills. To the right of the parking lot, there is a concrete walkway that will lead you to the restrooms.
FYI for those looking for a unique wedding photo location, Seven Sisters at Valley of Fire State Park is one of the four permitted wedding locations within the park.
The sign reads
Seven Sisters – once a part of the nearby red formations, these rock towers are all that remain after the relentless forces of erosion stripped away the surrounding sandstone deposits. Numerous “blow holes” forecast the eventual destruction of the towers that will take place many hundreds of years in the future.
