Very easy well kept trail. Fantastic for a no brainer with no need to pack supplies. Easy if you have children or a stroller, 3' wide trail is well cleared a few puddles go through parts of the trail. Bathrooms available at start and end. Great for a beginning trail runner. All people and dogs were friendly.
We hiked on a great weather day in April, first 1/3 is along a wide gravel path, it then gets narrow following a creek. Beautiful views as you hike, waterfalls, stream, wild flowers. We saw a variety of snakes, including a rattlesnake who wouldn't budge off the trail. (watch your step). at the top is a miners cabin, and further up, is an old mine.

Lots of large rocks to climb over at certain points of the trail so make sure you have good shoes. Sadly, there was no water when we went but the view was nice anyway.
Nice walk from the Visitor Center to Hoover Dam. Five tunnels and a steep decline to the dam. There is an elevator, if you're not feeling up to about 10 flights of steps. Then, the first mile is an uphill grade, but not steep since it is an old railroad bed. Lots of interesting signage along the way to clue you in on area history, geology, and flora and fauna.
