Bitter Springs Trail



Desert mountains, an historic wagon road, an intermittent spring, extraordinary rock formations and, sometimes, Bighorn sheep and wild horses. Bitter Springs Trail Backcountry Byway has all this and more on it’s twenty-eight mile journey through the Muddy Mountains of Nevada.

Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the United States. It is located on the Colorado River about 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the states of Nevada and Arizona. Formed by water impounded by Hoover Dam, Lake Mead extends 112 miles behind the dam, holding approximately 28.5 million acre feet of water, making it one of the largest-capacity reservoirs in the Northern Hemisphere. Lake Mead, with its 550 miles of shoreline, is the focal point of Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
