Easy mixed surface trail. The connection from the River Mountain is paved, and the tunnel is pretty smooth. Nice scenic ride with the family.

      All the tunnels were open. Went from the trailhead parking all the way to Hoover Dam.

      Trail is closed at the 3rd tunnel due to rocks falling and work shoring up the tunnel! But still a nice 2 mile ride and well worth the views along...
