Las Vegas Mountain Biking
Las Vegas is known world wide for its extravagant casinos, fine
eateries and 24 hour entertainment but wait there's more.. there's mountain
biking in them hills.

A view of the terrain. Hard to tell on this cloudy day, but the red mountains are something to be seen.
Some interesting cacti along the trail but do be careful as a spill into one of these would be quite unpleasant. I suggest riding in pants and slowing down at least until you are comfortable with the terrain. Tire treads need to be good condition before riding in the desert.
The scenery makes it well worth it. Who says you have to stay in the casinos all day. This makes a great way to break up a weekend.
The trails go on for miles. During summer, start in the early a.m. or
better yet ride during the cool months of October through May.
The desert is full of natural wonders. Not only is the riding great, but the desert vistas are incredible so don't forget the camera.
