This is a great side trip and should be done only from November to March due to heat in the other months. It is 20 minutes from Laughlin and the dirt road is usually in graded condish so any car can make it. Google it...More

Easy hike for the family. Make sure to bring water, it can be hot. The trail isn’t marked but you won’t get lost if you follow the river bed. The road out to the trail head is dirt, we made it fine in our car....More
