This trip takes you on a pleasant stroll through history high over Lake Mead. In 1931,work began on what was then called Boulder Dam, in an effort to ease flooding in California’s fertile Imperial Valley. More than 30 miles of rail lines were built to haul materials needed to build the dam. Today, this short segment remains as a reminder of the work the dam required. In 2001, the Park Service began restoring the long-neglected and crumbling tunnels. Plans to restore the trail all the way to Hoover Dam by 2002 were abandoned in the face of security concerns after the attacks of September 11, 2001. Vehicle: Passenger car.
