River Mtns / Hoover Dam
Come experience one of the newest bike paths in the Las Vegas valley. Recently opened, this beginner friendly River
Mountains bike trail will take you leisurely downhill toward Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam.
After some basic riding instruction, you will set off toward the trailhead and be immediately rewarded with spectacular
views of Lake Mead. A short stop gives you the opportunity to see Bighorn Sheep, so don’t forget the camera. Resting
points along the way will allow for explorations, photos, and questions about the area.
The bike path continues to meander toward Lake Mead where you can stop at the Lake Mead Visitors Center for restrooms and
water. Visit the wildlife exhibit and learn about local plants and animals of the Mohave desert.
Back at the railroad tunnel trailhead, you will prepare to embark on a historic journey. Ride your bike through five
giant tunnels, where trains transported concrete to the Hoover Dam 24 hours/day for two years. Take some time
to explore the Hoover Dam, snap some photos, or take the tour into the depths of this engineering wonder.
After lunch, we will pack up the mountain bikes and gear before heading back to Las Vegas to finish off an unforgettable experience.
