Trail shared by James Walt

One of many routes through the Rainbow Gardens.

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.

I got onto a quicksand trail that totally sucked I walked about 2 miles. In general this places was awful if you like real mountain bike trails. 13mi
