You’ve Never Experienced Anything Like This Epic Abandoned Railroad Hike In Nevada

An abandoned railroad track used in the construction of the world-famous Hoover Dam is now a popular hiking trail in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Built in the early 1930s, the 30-mile railroad system employed nine steam trains, four gas trains and 71 people. Today most of the abandoned railroad bed is unusable or underwater, but a little less than four miles has been designated as a national recreation trail.
