this is definitely a simpler trail to walk and is about 2.5 miles round trip. we had our 3 year old son and our 1 year old German Shepherd with us. We completed the hike in about an hour and a half. the trail is nicely marked out and is nice to walk :) we will do this trail again. it was nice we had our park pass too to save us from paying the 20$ entrance fee (which is good for 7 days).

$20 entry fee into Lake Mead Recreation Area. Park at campground info signs right as you enter the campground. We passed two people on our hike along the river. It was easy, quiet and a beautiful sunny winter day. I would not recommend this in the heat as there is no shade.

Just got back from hiking the Bluffs Trail. I give it a 3 star rating only because it's an easy, out and back hike with decent views. There's nothing difficult about this trail, so it's great for kids, walking the dog, etc. I did like that there was no one else on the trail on a Sunday late morning/early afternoon. For that reason I'd give it a 4th star. (NOTE: I'm a 49yr old avid hiker in great shape; I went here to take my dog for a short hike -- she's a short dog ;)

Nice trail, great to take people who have never been hiking or out of town guests. Will give them a taste of what it’s all about. Took my dogs off leash. They enjoyed it too.

Parking is at the campground, nice view and pretty well maintained trail. A few parts looked a little washed out but you can still walk through fine.

Good hike, but the elevation data on here is incorrect. According to my fitness tracker, it was 294'.

It is a nice easy trail with beautiful views. Boulders line the trail. Since it is a national park be sure to bring $10 cash for the week or a year pass which is $80. Happy hiking!
