Series of Hikes Planned for Lake Mead Area

A series of hikes are planned for the Lake Mead National Recreation Area next week.

Park service rangers will be conducting four hikes starting Sunday. The first will be March 16 at the Historic Railroad Trail rangers will show hikers how people used the landscape to build Hoover Dam and create the lake.

The second is also March 16, but the route will be through White Rock Canyon. During this hike, hikers will march down a wash to the Colorado River.

On March 17, hikers will be lead through the Redstone area to see the contrast between the red stone outcrops from the Jurassic period with the limestone mountains.

The final hike will be March 18 through the Pinto Valley Wilderness where hikers will get a look at striking washes and remnants of Old Arrowhead Highway.

All the hikes will focus on the unique features of each area, showing hikers how the forces of nature have shaped the landscape.

The treks are presented by the Lake Mead Institute and part of its Discovery Series. For more information or to register, call (702) 293-8990.
