|Hoover Dam from the bridge|
|Walkway to get up to the bridge|
To get up to the viewing area at the highway, you have to climb a pretty steep trail with switchbacks. The trail itself is paved but it's really a long way. You can either take the trail back and forth, or climb stairs that are put in occasionally. Either way, it's quite a hike! Then, you're up at the highway and you walk along what would really be the shoulder of the road. There are concrete barriers between you and the traffic but that traffic moves pretty fast! It's a one-way walk, too. You walk out onto the bridge to get your photo and you turn around and come back the same way to get back to the parking lot.
