Mtn. Biking around Vegas - 02/23/03 01:35 AM

A group of us are going to Vegas to climb (Red Rock Canyon), and two in the party are looking to Mountain Bike and I was wondering if anyone had any information about trails, web sites to check out, guide books, etc.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Jay

if you go on rte 159 past the merge for rte 160 from the i15......about 2 or so miles on the left will be a little kiosk.....that is the parking area......both sides of the road hold interesting trails.........if you take rte 160 from the strip or from the 159/i15 (past cactus jacks cactus store).....you will come to the town of blue diamond......into town(very small) make a lfet into the bike store parking lot.......proceed from there on your bike.....either toward the police station......or up the left road toward the homes......you will see a bunch of trails......or go into bike store and asks for directions(extremely friendly/helpful)..........or go out to boulder city.......make the turn by the tacobell.......go straight up past the mining......you'll see a new public restroom......park and ride.............bring lots of water......and quetions leave a post here with a contact....and i will be happy to get in touch......have fun!!!
