The Grapevine Canyon Trail is a 3.6 mile out and back hike in Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

The hike features a waterfall and historical petroglyphs. The hike rewards you with a stunning view of the Colorado River Valley and three waterfalls. The trail is named after the scenic grapevines that stretch along canyon walls.

The waterfalls are seasonal only, and may not be running in the late spring, summer or fall. When the water is running, the third waterfall features natural baths that are a great swimming hole. Dogs are allowed on the trail.
