Lake Mead NRA offers year-round recreational opportunities for boating, fishing, hiking, photography, picnicking and sightseeing. It is also home to thousands of desert plants and animals, adapted to survive where rain is scarce and temperatures can soar.

Fun hike with a small amount of scrambling. Stunning when the wildflowers are blooming.

Really cool dam. The tour is really interesting.

Short walk to a great view of Hoover Dam.

Easy Hike, beautiful scenery.

Go early so your not racing for the ropes.
Once you hit the bottom you can cliff jump. But current is pretty strong.

Decent easy trail. nothing too exciting but nice to get out and see the lake along with some cool railroad history.

Amazing all day hike. expect people to be around...less busy days during the week. If it's warm bring plenty of water. Also if your scared to heights and adventure...don't go.

Awesome had a great time with dog Katie and I on this trail

This trail is a hidden gem. For a great excursion around Kingman I highly recommend it. A little bit of wildlife and a beautiful view of the desert at sunset. Trail is well marked and easy to follow. Go counter clockwise to get most of the ascending elevation first.

As mentioned by others this is closed from June to Sept. It has some rock scrambles and some fixed ropes. Most of the hike is exposed to sun, and becomes hotter as you get closer to the river.
Suggestions:
1)arrive early - the parking area gets packed quickly
2) bring climbing gloves or just well fitted gloves, the ropes are old/frayed and tough on hands (ropes may or may not be in place - just luck of the draw)
3) double the water you'd have normally
4) standard first aid kit
5) sunscreen/hat
6) footwear that can get wet and retain grip, ankle support

It's an interesting hike, mostly just walking on sand but the scrambling and view at the end add to the fun. Lots of unprepared folks on the ropes, patience and kindness helps.
