Las Vegas Adventures: Mountain Bike Cottonwood Valley

I’m headed to Vegas for a long weekend with some buddies, but we don’t want to spend all of our time at the casinos and we don’t play golf. Where can we go for outdoor adventure?

Located in a section of the Red Rock preserve where hikers don’t usually venture, the Cottonwood Valley trail network has challenges for riders of all levels, even mountain bike racers. The premier ride is on a roughly 13-mile NORBA-sanctioned, roller-coastering singletrack racecourse called the Dead Horse Loop. Las Vegas Cyclery rents bikes and leads half-day ($119 with bike rental) and day-long tours ($159 with bike rental) of the area.
