Trail Overview

Kingman Wash Road is a maintained backcountry road off Highway 93, south of Hoover Dam in Arizona. The road runs for about 3.6 miles over hills and down washes through the wild backcountry of Lake Mead National Recreation Area to the colorful paint pots area at the shore of Lake Mead. The road is suitable for carefully-driven sedans, but a 2WD-HC vehicle would be safer, and one part of the road is a bit steep. This road provides vehicle access to the shore of Lake Mead and three other backcountry roads, including Fortification Hill Road and the hike to the summit of Fortification Hill.


This is a maintained road, it is graded regularly and high- clearance 2WD can make it.
