Last day in Laughlin, but still wanted to get a few hikes in. This trail was first on the list. It's about 20 minutes outside of of Laughlin...an easy drive. Got there a little before 6am which turned out to be a good thing. The ranger was just opening up and wasn't quite ready for entrance fee payments and so they waved me through and said "next time." I found out later the entrance fee for a vehicle is $20 :o . Staying on the main road will take to the boat repair shop, which is conveniently labeled "boat repair." So there was no problem finding where the TH was. There was no designated place for parking, but there is quite a bit of open space behind the shop so I ended up parking next to a land-bound boat. The trail was short and sweet. At first I had to go through a few hills that offered tantalizing glimpses of the lake, before coming to a sandy section and the first cove-Ski Cove. Walking between a couple of dunes brought me to Davis Cove and what seemed to be the end of the trail. Short, easy hike. I was done in 30 minutes. If you are just coming here for the hike, I don't think it is worth a $20 dollar entrance fee, but if you plan on making a day of it and enjoying the water amenities, then it is probably a good investment. (Annual pass is $40). The animal life is really what made this hike enjoyable for me. In addition to ducks, rabbits and lizards, I saw a very healthy coyote and a couple of large vultures on the hillside.

In Bullhead for a few hours on a charter. Quick hike with some swimming and relaxing. Much better then channel surfing in the FBO

Ended the day with a nice swim in Lake Mohave. Beautiful sand dunes on the marina side of the lake.

We spent a good amount of time with the views of the lake and surrounding area. This is a great short hike and I cannot wait to try this out again this summer and hike to the cove to go swimming.

Fisherman's Trail is an easy hike across Volcanic rock and through sand dunes to Turkey Cove on Lake Mohave. Turkey Cove is a great place to camp and enjoy swimming. The trail is behind the boat and motor repair shop at Katherine Landing on Lave Mohave, part of Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
