The Cowboy Trail System begins at the Cowboy Cave Trailhead, and goes up into the Blue Diamond Hills. The lower trails are fairly easy and wind through the sagebrush. For more experienced riders and hikers, the higher hills provide several new expert mountain biking and hiking trails. There are many places to stop and take in some amazing views of Red Rock, Las Vegas and the Calico Basin.
Many of these trails are very steep, rocky and technical, and are best ridden downhill. Take your time on the corners and stay safe.
This trail system is open 24/7 365 days a year and has no fees for the hiking and mountain biking trails. Make sure to check weather conditions before heading out.
Take a break from the Las Vegas big-city scene and go on a guided horseback trail ride at Cowboy Trail Rides.
See the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority website for ideas of other things to do in the Las Vegas area.
