From Las Vegas, NV, take 93 south through Boulder City, NV. Turn Left on Lake Shore Dr. If you drive past the Hacienda, you have driven too far. From Kingman, take 93 north and leave AZ.

It's a great place to run. But it can get really crowded on the weekends. FYI, if the trailhead parking lot is full, I park on the side of the road at one of several pull-outs before you get to the toll booth and I've never had any issues with tickets or being hassled by the parks department. Oh and if you bring a big group, please don't take up the whole trail.

I don't know if I'd necessarily call this a hike. It's more of walk. The trail itself is kind of like a fire road. It's a good historical walk and I'm glad I did it. You can walk all the way to the Hoover Dam which I did. NOTHING technical about it. Perfect for kids but a little long. 7 miles out and back.

Nice little get away. If you are just starting out walking or hiking, this would be a good place to start. The trail is wide, smooth and only has a moderate grade. Take extra water with the coming of higher temperatures.
