Tips

  • Try to walk all the way to the east, best vantage point of the Hoover Dam. Also, take a minute to stand near the road, you won't feel any car or semi come by.
  • This is definitely the more inexpensive way of visiting the Hoover Dam than paying for the parking fee & tours at the Hoover Dam location itself!
  • When a tractor trailer drives by, use the progress of its shadow to determine your precise location on the bridge.
  • Find the apex of the bridge.
  • Walk across it! Parking area is on the old road to the dam. The view is well worth the hike up the hill. Even in 115F heat.
