    This is a popular trail in Las Vegas and also the site of a couple of 5Ks. There's some beautiful views of Lake Mead from the trail and walking through the old railroad tunnels is fun (although can be a bit creepy during the dark sections!) The trail itself is pretty flat and there's lots of gravel. You'll see a lot of walkers, joggers and bicyclists on the trail. Make sure you bring plenty of water in the summer, other than the railroad tunnels there's no shade and you can run out of water faster than you realize.

    This is a beautiful stroll through the mountains that run alongside of Lake Mead, well at least you have the view of the lake. This is however a long walk and there is nothing that keeps it really all that interesting aside from brief periods of walking through these monstrous tunnels. If you are looking for a flat easy hike this is the trail for you.
