The first of two summer trail closures at Lake Mead goes into effect this Sunday, April 15. The Goldstrike Canyon Trail will be shut down until September 30; on May 15, the Arizona Hot Spring Trail will likewise close. The park started closing these two strenuous routes four years ago after visitor safety incidents spiked.
