Lake Mead NRA offers year-round recreational opportunities. Its lakes cater to boaters, swimmers, and fishermen while its desert rewards hikers, wildlife photographers, and roadside sightseers. It is also home to thousands of desert plants and animals, adapted to survive in an extreme place where rain is scarce and temperatures soar.

A great getaway from the busy hiking locations near Lake Mead! This trail features quite a few pour overs/dry water falls that require some minor scrambling/bouldering/climbing to overcome. Each pour over has an easy side path in case your party is not a fan of climbing or bouldering though!

Once you are past the saddle, you can continue on to the Cholla Forest before returning to the trailhead.

This trail is definitely "off-trail" and is in full-sun with minimal shade. Definitely pack water and sunscreen before heading out!

It should be named “Riadside Truckstop” Trail!

I always enjoy running on this trail when I come to town. It is well maintained and mostly used by bikers.
