Great trail only accessible from the Colorado River just below the Hoover Dam. Walk through wash from the river then enter slot canyon and encounter numerous waterfalls. There are anchored ropes to assist in climbing up some of the waterfalls. We had to head back to river so we never got to the end but what we did complete was excellent. Lots of scrambling and great photo ops. Note- there is a 7-8 mile Boy Scout Canyon trail accessible from the Lake Mead NRA but that trail ends at a 300ft drop off (I believe where the Hot Spring trail ends).
