Fortification Hill Tours

Fortification Hill
When it comes to Las Vegas, City of Sin, and a cluster of neon lights, hiking isn’t the very first thing that comes to most people’s minds. The reality, however, is that Vegas is surrounded by dozens of great hiking trails and rung by mystical mountains, with the trail to the top of Fortification Hill offering one of the area’s best views. From the top of this rocky pinnacle inside of Lake Mead National Recreation area, climbers are rewarded with panoramic views of Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. This six-mile trail is for serious hikers who are comfortable with a little bit of bouldering, as sections in the middle can require scrambling for about 10 vertical feet. Most of the trail is straightforward, however, albeit a little steep, as the trail gains approximately 1,400 feet in a little under three miles. While you’re sure to work up a sweat when climbing—especially since there isn’t any shade—the view from the top makes every step completely worth the effort.

Practical Info

The trailhead to Fortification Hill is about an hour outside of Las Vegas, in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area on the Arizona side of Hoover Dam. Access to the trailhead is over rough road, and a map of the area and 4-wheel drive are handy for easy access. Hiking is possible from fall through spring, since extreme temperatures in the summer months can lead to dangerous conditions.
Address: Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, USA
