About Rail Explorers
Enjoy an exhilarating 4 mile downhill ride through the desert on our pedal powered railbikes from the Nevada State Railroad Museum to Railroad Pass. Bring a snack and a drink to enjoy during the 20 minute break at our rail-side picnic area. Your ticket includes a ride back to the top of the hill in one of the Museum's historic trains, and free entry to the museum. Please allow 2 hours for this tour. You will see the hills surrounding Boulder City and old abandoned mine shafts. Boulder City is the center of adventure, look for skydivers soaring high above, and be minutes away from historic Boulder City. This fun, outdoor activity can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities. Great for groups of friends, families, couples young and old, corporate events or gatherings of any kind!

My partner and I did the Sunrise Railway Tour and it was really fun! We got lucky and ended up being the only group on the tour when they are normally booked up. Staff/Service > Nonetheless, the staff was very friendly and let us know about their partnership with other local businesses in Boulder City that would provide discounts for doing the Railway Tour. Went through the safety training pretty quickly and ensured that we felt safe/secure on our ride. Overall a very pleasant group Tour > The tour itself was not that long. Since we were the only group there that morning they let us take as much time as we wanted to get there and back and however long we wanted for our break in the middle. Since we went in July, I am REALLY glad that we did the sunrise tour before it got too hot. Bonus it rained the day before which cooled the weather down even more for us. It was a nice breeze while riding and it wasn't very noisy in the surrounding areas making it a very peaceful ride with beautiful views of the mountains ahead. Riding the actual 'train' or 'railcar' (i forget the actual name) was a breeze because it's motorized it feels as though you're hardly doing any work pedaling so great for anyone regardless of fitness level! Wildlife > On our tour we saw a few small animals but nothing alarming! Overall I would definitely recommend it to people who are looking to get off the strip and do something different. It's also maybe a half hour from the Hoover Dam so a great starting point for a day of adventures.
