Kayaking the Colorado River through Black Canyon

Kayaking the Colorado River through Black Canyon

One of the best gems in the Las Vegas area lies just below the Hoover Dam. The Black Canyon Water Trail is a 12-mile, winding stretch of the Colorado River that is full of hot springs, waterfalls, beaches, and caves. Emerald Cave / Cove was awesome!
