More drops, flow & exposure than one trail deserves - and a blast to ride!

Markk Knowles

Overview

This ride is the closest thing to a bull ride you'll find in Las Vegas....unless of course you get drunk at Stoney's!!

Description

!Ike's Peek Loop starts and ends on old jeep roads - about 1 mile at the start and 1 back to your truck.

The approach and the first mile and a half of singletrack is a challenging climb, for those that like a good climb, it's appreciable. But from that point on, prepare to become addicted, as this trail is hard to stay away from.

There are many drops/steps from 8" to around 4' both up and down and most have 2 to 3 in close succession. Some of the largest have ride arounds... if you're into that sort of thing.

Exposure, yeah, we have that too! Just don't look down. #1 rule in MTBing: Look where you want to go. The riding is mostly manageable along the edge for an experienced rider, heck you have several inches to play with after all...

The 4-mile mark seems to be a gathering point for fixing flats, mostly snake bites. It's wise to bring tubes and refresh your Stan's for this trail, or you may enjoy a refreshing hike.

Following rubber repair 101 the riding is mostly smooth and flowy with a series of small, fun rock drops/hops. Heck, even the jeep track at the end isn't at all so bad.

When you get back to your truck, shake it off and refresh with a cool beverage from the cooler and a sandwich, then go do it again!

Fun ride. I think it's worthwhile to include a loop of Legalize it once your on top of the mesa. There were some confusing white paint markings on Legalize It that appeared to be indicating a particular route for something, but that route definitely wasn't an actual trail. Signage here was a bit better than in other trails in the area. Mar 14, 2016
This ride is a sort of rock'n'roll fun ride with views on Sin City. Going up Good Call brings you as well right to the top of the mesa with good flow. The ride alongside the cliff on Legalize It before taking Menny Thanks makes it an awesome loop ride. Aug 23, 2016
Fun ride, definitely super technical in some spots. Lots of exposure but great views of the valley. The ride down Good Call is a blast! Dec 13, 2016
