LS Fest West is right around the corner, and we can’t think of a better way to kick it off than with a cruise. April 23rd will mark the 4th anniversary of the annual LSX Magazine cruise. This year their cruise will take LS Fest West participants to Valley of Fire State Park. This public recreation and nature preservation area covers nearly 46,000 acres and is located 37 miles northeast of Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The park’s centerpiece consists of Aztec Sandstone that was formed by shifting sand dunes thousands of years ago and often appear to be on fire when reflecting sunlight. The end of the cruise will take you to the White Domes, a 1.1 mile hiking trail through the stunning landscapes of Valley of Fire State Park. Participants will have the opportunity to take a 30 minute hike through the White Domes trail before heading back to Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The cruise will head North on I-15 for 17 miles and then take exit 75 toward Valley of Fire E/Lake Mead for 15 miles. The trip to the Valley of Fire will take about an hour one way so plan accordingly. Water, a full tank of fuel, and a dependable vehicle are always a good idea on a trip like this.
If you want to meet the LSX Magazine crew and check out some of the cars, we recommend being at Las Vegas Motor Speedway at 3:00 p.m. on April 23rd. The cruise will depart from there at 4:00 p.m. to Valley of Fire State Park. Non-residents will need to bring $10 to enter the park while residents of Nevada will be charged $8. Please bring the exact amount required as the visitor center will not be open to provide change.
After LSX Mag’s photo crew snap some pictures of cruise participants at the lower parking lot of the visitor center, everyone will cruise on up to the famous White Domes which are about a 30-minute drive through the park. After everyone gets back to the visitor center, they’ll check out the 7 Sisters area right down the road for another photo-op. As the sun sets, we’ll head on back to Las Vegas to wrap up an exciting trip with friends!
