Trip to Logandale
By Denis & Sandi Inman
On Thursday, Sandi and I have a trail run on the Logandale trail System in Moapa Valley. For those who don’t mind big city traffic, it is only a 2 hour drive from Pahrump, through Las Vegas, to Logandale. We took the alternative route that goes through Shoshone, Baker, Kelso, and Nipton in California. From there, we drove to Searchlight, Cottonwood Cove Marina, back to Searchlight, up the 95 to Highway 165, East to Nelson and then on to the Colorado River.
Once there, we turned around, drove back to the 95, North to Highway 93 through Boulder City, then on Lakeshore Road through Lake Mead National Recreation Area to Moapa Valley. Our way is MUCH more scenic and extremely more pleasant than the short way, but for some, the 8 1/2 hour trip could put them off a little.
