Overview

Ride a bicycle on one of the Las Vegas Valley's best bike paths during this full-day eco-tour from Las Vegas. Follow your adventure guide to the famous Hoover Dam and enjoy panoramic views of Lake Mead. All mountain biking equipment, a picnic lunch, bottled water and round-trip transportation from Las Vegas hotels is included.
  • Ride through the Lake Mead Recreation Area
  • Take the optional Discovery Tour for a chance to see inside the dam (at own expense)
  • All equipment, professional guide, bottled water and lunch is included
  • Complimentary hotel pickup and drop-off from select Las Vegas hotels
Following pickup at your Las Vegas hotel, travel to the trailhead near the Hoover Dam.

Disembark to meet your local adventure guide and get fitted for a bike and safety equipment. Listen to an orientation of the area and a safety briefing before hopping on your bike and heading down the trail. This beginner-friendly trail includes a relaxed, downhill ride toward Lake Mead. Listen as your guide points out local desert plant and animal life, and keep your eyes peeled for bighorn sheep. Be sure to bring your camera, as the group will pause a few times at scenic lookouts for photo ops. 

Stop to explore the Lake Mead Visitors Center, then head off down to the shores of Lake Mead and jump in if the weather is warm. Back on the trailhead, enter a series of tunnels that were once used to transport concrete used in the dam's construction.

At the Hoover Dam, dismount your bike and take some time to explore the Visitors Center or sign up for the Discovery Tour (own expense). Stroll around the magnificent structure and admire the views of the Colorado River. Then enjoy a boxed lunch and climb back in to your vehicle for transportation back to Las Vegas and drop-off at your hotel.

I highly recommend taking this mountain bike tour. The majority of the ride was down hill with just a few difficult up hill climbs. Our tour guide Neal was the absolute best!!! We had so much fun with him, full of information about the area and plants. I had wanted to see big horn sheep in the hills we passed, but they weren't there. Neal knew of a special place were we could see them grazing and took us there on the way back from the dam. All around great guy!!! Lunch and snacks were great too :)

This was a really pleasant way to get to Hoover Dam. Interesting ride with lots of information about the fauna and flora. The fact that it is mainly downhill and off road makes it suitable for all levels of ability. Don't worry the path is very safe to ride on.
