When I set up the Riemann sum I ended up with an expression involving the sum of the square roots of the first n positive integers. There is a complicated formula for that involving Bernoulli numbers. So this is a hard problem unless there's some trick I didn't see.

exactly, when you use a fractionation regular $x_{i}=\frac{i}{n}$ you will get a complicated formula. However, if you use not a regular fractionation as $x_{i}=\frac{i^2}{n^2}$ , you can deal with this.
