Who wouldn’t want to play cowboy for a day? Whether you’re an experienced rider or a first timer the area around Henderson offers you the chance to get up in the saddle! There are several places to up on that horse and hit the trails, both in Kyle Canyon and Red Rock Canyon. The trails offer scenic views of the surrounding deserts, and make for pleasant rides. The region is also home to several ranches if you’re looking for even more of the cowboy experience.

If instead of horses you want to hit the dusty trail, there are several other outfits that let you head out in the desert with ATVs or other four wheel vehicles. Action Tours offers helicopter rides over the desert, plus a variety of ATV excursions, as well as whitewater rafting and other adventures that is far from the typical family outing. And if you want to put the pedal down, consider mountain biking. Red Rock Downhill offers rides through the desert for both the experience mountain biker and novices alike.
