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. Drive past the Hacienda, and turn Right on Lake Shore Dr. The trail head is approximately 500 yards down Lake Shore Dr, on the right.

Easy trail to enjoy. Great views, with the tunnels being an obvious highlight. Parking to the trailheads is very accessible. I always bring my dog, and it’s wide and easy terrain for him to enjoy, as well.

Took my dog along the trail with me, great firm flat terrain for for him. After all 5 tunnels there is a small area that has a restroom, water fountain, and an emergency call station. Amazing views of lake mead and terrain. Tunnels are amazing and very cool to walk through. Parking was ample for a Wednesday afternoon.

Loved the views of Lake Mead, the 5 tunnels were cool (literally), and the history was interesting. Also dog friendly.

awesome little trek, I went on this hike with my 7yrs daughter and my 10 yrs son. we loved this hike, amazing history throughout the hike. best views of the lake, only challenging part was the hike from the car to the gate, the rest is pretty flat even trail.

Very minimal parking. Can park a little further away at the visitors center or at the Hacienda Hotel, but that’s a steep trail down to the railroad trail.

Mostly flat trail. Nice views of the lake. The tunnnels are a nice cool respite from the hot desert sun and heat. Easy long hike.
