The Bowl of Fire is a large area with several different trailheads to hike the different ares. The Southwest Bowl of Fire can be accessed from mile marker 18 on Northshore Drive. There is a pretty good trail from the parking area that leads to the bowl. You can also access the trail from Callville Wash North Road, but this road can be sandy or muddy, but you save 1/2 mile. I could spend all day exploring the amazing sandstone formations, arches, grottos, and various patterns in the sandstone.
This is a really amazing area, with a colorful terrain most noted by its deep reds and oranges, but it has a kaleidoscope of colors including streaks of green, blue, white, yellow, peach, and black. It is a fantastic and dreamlike environment. I assume geologists would have a field day here, as would painters. We hiked in from the trailhead at the parking on 167. Unfortunately, it takes a fee to get on 167, at least from the spot we came in. It is very easy to follow the trail down to the main wash, which runs more or less parallel to the road and to the red rock area too. From there, you can find another wash which takes you deep into the red rock either by turning left or right. We took the wash to the right, which led us on a fairly easy walk ending close to the red cliffs, and to the left of the large gorge in the rock. Climb up any nearby hill or boulder, and you get an full view of this part of bowl of fire, as well as an eye full of the rainbow hues of the terrain. We probably hiked a little over an hour in, but if you choose to go off the trail here, or off the washes, it would be very hard to get lost. The road is at your back, as well as a long ridge that runs parallel to the road. The red cliffs or more or less in front of you. If you are not sure where you are, you can climb up a hill just a little and you'll get a view of the washes, the ridge, and perhaps the road. so exploring here is fairly easy and fun. I would definitely love to go back and explore further.
