We are located in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. When you arrive to our ranch, there is a dirt parking lot with a huge sign that says Horseback Riding. You go through the gate under the sign and drive up the short, well maintained dirt road, to the horses, and our office at the top of the hill. Up there you will find our office where we will sign you up then get you on your horse at the corral for your ride.

I have ridden here several times over the past few years as it is the most reasonably priced and scenic trail ride I have found in the Las Vegas area. I appreciated being picked up and dropped off at my hotel (Golden Nugget). My friend and I went on a 2-hour ride that took us up above the canyon. Horses... More

Lovely place, ready for us when we arrived. Clean toilets, well organised. Very nice friendly people. It was just us on the ride so extra special. The horses were very gentle and look well cared for. Helmets supplied for my children. Really stunning safe ride, did the 1 hour so drove ourselves there from our hotel in Vegas, easy drive.... More

Howdy Clancy! We always appreciate it when people comment on our safe rides. The safety of our guests is our #1, #2 and #3 concerns. It is why so many first time riders come back again and again. Your Cowboy Trail Rides Crew More

We did the Sunset BBQ ride. Pick up at our hotel was on time. Very friendly staff. Nice calm horses. Part of the trail was a little steep but the horses seem to know what they are doing as they made it very easy to keep up with every one else and navigate the terrain. We were welcomed back to...

Howdy Leo! We understand! Even after a long hard day we often find it difficult to leave. It is so beautiful and peaceful out here you just want to enjoy the quiet a few more minutes before heading back in to the hustle and bustle of Sin City. Your Cowboy Trail Rides Crew More

We enjoyed a wonderful sunset ride and delicious steak dinner, the best steak I have ever eaten! Thanks to Darnell, Armando and Katie, we had a fabulous experience. The trail is very rocky so we could only walk, but the scenery was gorgeous. I have had horses for 30 years and these are all well cared for and well fed.... More

Me and my wife did the Sunset BBQ ride and had a blast. The guides were great, nice, and informative. This was our second time riding here and the horses are so easy to ride. The food at the end was so good and the steak was huge. We recommend this to anyone of any riding level.

5 stars !!! My wife and daughter are accomplished horse riders and both own a horse. They wanted to experience riding around Canyons etc, I've never ridden before so we booked the 5 hour WOW ride and it was great experience for all of us.

We're always looking for new things to do in Vegas other than the obvious and despite having only been on a horse a couple of times before booked the early morning 2 hour ride. Jet lag worked in our favour for once as we were up early anyway and of course it's cooler in the morning (it turns out it's... More

Howdy Rob and Sharon! In the summer time the temperatures are often 9º cooler than the broadcast temperature for Las Vegas, and it can be as much as 14º cooler. For instance, as this is being written the 'Las Vegas' temperature is 100º while here in camp it is only 91º. A significant difference. Your Cowboy Trail Rides Crew More

All the staff were wonderful with all levels of riders. The views were amazing and they timed the ride for the best sunset view possible. Dinner was plentiful and delicious and the horses were lovely. We are already planning for a longer ride next visit.

Howdy Monica! 'Plentiful and delicious' are the perfect adjectives for our dinner. Your choice of protein (steak is our favorite) with baked beans, corn on the cob, Dutch Oven potatoes and salad. Then S'Mores for desert. We're already looking forward to the dinner ride just writing about it. Your Cowboy Trail Rides Crew More

I was in Las Vegas for a business trip, and was really looking to see something other than casinos and shows... I decided to take the Sunset Trail Ride with dinner.
