"Originally a Native American trail, Bootleg Canyon – also called the Hooch Highway was a well-known backdoor into Boulder City and the Hoover Dam construction site during prohibition. Bootleggers brewed illegal alcohol in stills hidden in draws and arroyos then moved it through the canyon into the dry community of Boulder City and down to the Colorado River. Later, trails in the area were improved by the Civilian Conservation Corps, and the area was used for public picnics and gatherings. Today, Bootleg Canyon is the site of many hiking and mountain biking trails."
