  • Unfortunately when I was here, I was just passing through for the night and getting ready to head back home the next day so I only had a few minutes that morning to spare for a quick hike but from what I saw I could definitely see myself spending a lot of time here. From a distance the view of lake Mead with the mountain background was amazing especially seeing the morning sunrise which accents and highlights all the beautiful colors in the landscape. I wish I had enough time to see the tunnels but since I didn’t, I’ve now got another reason to comeback. I love the fact they repurposed the old railroad and I think this reflects positively on the type of place Boulder City is. I also want to comment on how clean the paved trail was, I can’t recall seeing any litter. I leave here impressed and with the intent to return one day to pick up where I left off.
  • A good, flat hike, where you can hear bats and go through railroad tunnels all the way to Hoover dam... All 5 tunnels may be easily passable if you forget to read the signs. Minimal damage to a few feet of wooden bracing means one of the tunnels is "closed." bring lots of water and don't go when it is too sunny or the middle of summer.
