The Anthem East Trail is a good trail for locals to the Anthem area to build strength and endurance. It's also a great trail to fill in those blanks between General Hospital & Oprah. The trail is a multiuse mix between paved, rocky dirt road and singletrack. The terrain has excellent MTB trail potential and some singletrack sections of this trail are quite fun.

This area also provides some outstanding views of the Las Vegas Valley.

The official start of the trail is paved but can be started from The McCullough Hills Trail for an all dirt singletrack, steep, thigh exploding start. Anthem East has several long steep climbs with corresponding descents and ends at a paved trailhead. If riding out and back, you can easily skip the last long climb by riding the road north, taking the third right (Crescent Heights), skipping past the gate at the water tanks and rejoining the trail.
