    15 mi / 2000 ft gain
    The Cowboy Trails offer a perfect break from climbing in Red Rock Canyon or a night on the Town in Las Vegas. You will need to be as tough as a cowboy (or cowgirl) to ride these trails. It is just as much of a workout going up as it is down. However, this area offers you the chance to hone your ...

    Camp at Boxcar Cove

    0 mi / 0 ft gain

    Relaxing at Boulder Beach

    4.0
    Boulder Beach at Lake Mead is a great place to get your toes wet while road tripping.  It's a big beach with a campground, ample parking, and ducks!  The water is very clear and an amazing blue.  When the wind picks up there are little waves forming, so keep that in mind if you plan on kayaking o...

But don't get too comfortable -- at around the 1.5 mile mark you will reach the first of eight ropes along the trail and the challenge begins. You will need to use these ropes to ...
