We rented electric bikes at River Mountain Bikes and Boats (or some such name) right on the highway near this trailhead. We hadn't tried e-bikes before but were glad we did because there are some challenging portions of this 15 (roughly) mile trail. Some of the trail is along the river; some of it has been turned into a nature... More

I walk here daily and love it. Often see lots of wild life. Trails are paved if you'd like but plenty of dirt roads to hike on as well. Lots of hills for a challenging workout. Usually pretty busy with walkers, runners, and bicycles. Great place to walk your dog as well.

Many Mountain trails to follow at Equestrian trailhead. Nice views of the Vegas Strip from above and valleys. Great place to watch the sunset at also.

We rented bikes from the fabulous River Mountain Bike Shop in Henderson and set off with our water and trail snacks. Route is 35miles in total and the middle section is an 11mile ascent - not that steep but up all the way. Once you clear that pass though it's pretty flat or downhill until a short steep climb just... More

My husband and his friends cycle the loop trail weekly and love it. Highly challenging and takes them three or more hours to travel. They have seen rattlesnakes from time to time, but are able to move around them without incident.

We rented bikes at River Mountains Bike Shop and headed onto the trail from that point to do the loop. We started pretty early in the morning for our ride. The temperatures climbed and by afternoon it was really hot. We stopped in Boulder City for lunch which was a nice and continued on back to the Bike Shop. It... More

My husband and I ride our bikes recreationally almost every day. We love to ride and often ride long distances. So we were excited to find the River Mountain Loop here in Henderson where we were vacationing. So we attached our dog trailer loaded in the dogs and off we went. We had taken 8 bottles of water since although... More

I love biking this 5 mile trail. It is not easy because it is downhill to start and uphill to finish but the scenery is beautiful and the ride is fun.
