“Enter the Devil's Fire”
Hobgoblins, gnomes, and goblin gunships. A raptor, a roaring beast, and a dinosaur. Monsters, dragons, Pokémon creatures, and Jaws. A cougar, a stalking lion, a teapot, an alligator, Little Dumbo, and giant mushrooms. There’s even an arch shaped like a heart and a miniature version of Utah’s Landscape Arch. And does that head belong to a camel, a llama, or “Star Wars” character Jar Jar Binks? The fantastic images you see in the rocks at Nevada’s Little Finland are limited only by your imagination. NOTE: The directions to Little Finland may not be completely accurate. You might need to do a little exploring to find it! see also: 36.44838114.21404 for trailhead
Had no luck with getting there... very long deserted road that requires 4 wheel drive. Saw a strange sign and continued for 15 minutes then decided to turn around. .
Here are directions I found:
Short trail runs among bushes to base of cliff (view NE)
Getting to the Trailhead
Little Finland is located out in Gold Butte at the northeast end of Lake Mead, about 3 hours northeast of Las Vegas in a wild, remote, and scenic area.
From town, drive out to Gold Butte. From Whitney Pocket, continue south on theunpaved Gold Butte Road for 3.9 miles to Mud Wash North Road.
Turn right onto Mud Wash North Road and drive southwest and downstream for 3.2 miles to Mud Wash Road. Stay right onto Mud Wash Road, continuing downstream for another 4.0 miles to Little Finland Road, on the right.
Drive east on Little Finland Road, staying right at a fork and carefully climbing a rocky step (barely passable in 2WD). When the road arrives below the Little Finland cliffs, it forks. The main road stays right to the southern parking area, while the left, using 4WD, climbs a steep sand hill to the northern trailhead atop the cliff. The northern trailhead is better for people with ambulatory difficulties.
