The Old Highway 93 trail runs parallel to US 93. It falls within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. There is no fee or permit needed to run this trail. The north entrance is an easy right turn off the main highway. The surface is generally a gravel mix. It can be managed by most vehicles having good clearance as an out-and-back trail. Running in one direction and exiting on the south end requires a steep, rocky hill descent into a wash and back up to the main highway. The views of the Black Canyon area, with glimpses of the Colorado River, are amazing, especially at sunset. A couple of camping spots along the way can accommodate a few vehicles.
