Did this last summer, toured the visitor center and then walked across dam. Worth the stop and nice diversion enroute between trails.

Walked across the Dam and even driven across before the bridge was completed. Even entered into the bowels on the tour. Great experience.

Hoover Dam is an engineering wonder; we have taken the elevator down to the generator room before, but this time we walked from the parking lot on the Arizona side of the dam, walked across the dam, up to the visitor center - tours are now $30 - think they used to be $10... so we skipped the tour... then walked up to the stairway to cross the new Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge - another great engineering feat - they built it from both sides and met in the middle with only a 9.5 mm correction needed. Here is a time lapse video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3hAOvkNlRI - also an excellent article on Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_O'Callaghan%E2%80%93Pat_Tillman_Memorial_Bridge. The new bridge spans 1,900 feet across Black Canyon and 900 feet above the Colorado River. Awesome photo opps from the bridge. This is a not to miss experience!

On a recent trip, we stopped on our way from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. We were short on time and unfortunately did not get to take a tour or make the walk up to the new bridge for its incredible view. But we did really enjoy the walk from one of the upper parking lots on the Arizona side all the way across the dam and back. It is a spectacular achievement and an amazing sight!

Very crowded area. The walk is cool, great views, but too many people. Everything changed after 9/11.
