Boulder City, Nevada

Hike the Railroad Tunnel Trail

7.2 Miles Total - 1332 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

The Railroad Tunnel Trail is a 7.2 mile scenic and historically significant hike in Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The trail is used by hikers, dog walkers, and bikers. Dogs are allowed on trail

These tunnels were built to support the construction of the Hoover Dam. If you decide to go all the way to the dam, there is an elevator for accessibility along with stairs. This hike is relatively flat, and perfect for children - but mind the distance.
