Description

This trail is another of the trails that will lead riders around the Rainbow Gardens. The trailhead is well marked off of Lake Mead Blvd.

Though this trail doesn't require much technical riding skill, there are portions that get fairly steep. There are also more hills than you'll tackle on the Rainbow Gardens Road or on Kodachrome Road. This is a great trail for beginners to push their speed both up and downhill.

Bring lots of water and don't leave any trash behind. Pack it in, pack it out.

The virtual tour shows this ride is an out and back, rather than a loop. The ride details and the tour show 9 miles to the turnaround point. So, it appears this is actually an 18 mile ride... is that correct?? Thanks! Feb 9, 2018
Lisa, you are correct. but the roads and trails out there crisscross and interconnect a lot so you could make it a loop if you wanted. Feb 9, 2018
