Hoover Dam Scenic Bike Trail
Tour ID: desertadv-010
Duration: 8 hours
Departs from: most hotels in the Las Vegas area or our shop in Boulder City
Come experience one of the newest bike paths in the Las Vegas valley. Recently opened, this beginner friendly River Mountains trail will take us leisurely downhill toward Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. After some basic riding instruction, you will set off from 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 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. Take your bike for a ride through the tunnels, where trains transported concrete to the Hoover Dam 24 hours a day for 2 years. You will travel through no less than 5 tunnels, with views of Lake Mead between each.
Continue on the trail toward the Hoover Dam, and drop into one of the modern engineering wonders of the world. Here you will have ample time to explore the visitor's center, take the Discovery tour, and pose for a few photos while looking down at the Colorado River.
After lunch, we will pack up the bikes and gear before heading back to Las Vegas to finish off an unforgettable experience. A new trip for 2008, this is rapidly becoming a customer favorite!
