Hike the Hoover Dam & its Surroundings

This is a tour for the traveler who wants a different type of experience. Sometimes to get the great views, you have to do a little hiking!

We will travel 35 miles Southeast to Lake Mead & go for a hike on the Historic Railroad Trail to visit two railroad tunnels used during construction of the Dam. Then, we will travel to Hoover Dam & into Arizona for a walking tour of the top of the Dam & its surroundings. Be sure to stand on the state line so you can be in 2 places at once! Finally, we will climb to the top of the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge to take in amazing views from almost 900 ft above the Colorado River. Epic views & a dam good time awaits!

**NOTE: This tour does not include any inside tours of the Dam. Visit my Best Dam Tour for an inside tour!
