Trail Description
About this trail
There is almost 35 miles of awesome singletrack to be ridden. There is a trail for everyone, wheter you want a relaxing after work ride or a technical monster, it's all here. Some of the trails are quite rocky at some points, but it is all rideable. Bootleg Canyon has been dubbed an Epic ride by the I.M.B.A. Visit BootlegCanyon.org or one of the bike shops in town for a map. There is also some killer downhill trails for those gravity extremists.

Review: Fun riding! There are some pretty technical rocky spots where less experienced riders will need to get off and walk their bike. Lots of rocky singletrack makes for challenging rides. There's also plenty of trails for less experienced riders.

Review: Not really my preferred kind of riding but the trails here are well designed and pretty fun. They are dry, dusty, and LOOSE! Seriously, don't wander too far towards the edge of the singletrack. It's easy to crash here and there's nothing but sharp rocks to cushion your fall.

Highlights for me include West Leg, Mother, and POW.

There's not a tree in sight so be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and water.

Review: This was one of my bucket list trails. I drove in from Texas and hit the trail at daybreak to get a jump on the 115 degree days. I was a little intimated by some of the reviews. The "Get Directions" on this site takes you right to the trail parking. From there I rode up the gravel road about a 100 yards or so and turned left onto the trails and rode up on West Cliff. Very technical going uphill. I had to dismount a number of times but I'm also somewhat of a novice. I then jumped onto Girlscout and it was much easier. From there I connected to several trails. The heat finally ran me off. A must trail system before the summer months. If you can get someone to drop you at the top it would be ok. But like my wife said "ride up and get the whole experience"...

Review: Absolutely incredible MTB riding! There is a trail for everyone, as long as you are not a beginner. The rocks and cactus are a little bit intimidating, but stay in control and you won't have to worry!

Review: There is something for everyone here except the timid novice. The cross country trails have a good variety of buff and rocky and the downhill trails are legit--not for anyone afraid of steeps, drops or exposure. On the down side, there's a lot of loose powder dirt, especially in sketchy turns, and the entire mountain is uniformly dark brown and dead. Overall, this is a great trail network, but requires a sense of adventure, especially as some trail intersections are not marked and can get confusing.

Review: Great cross country trails. Rented bike from all mountain Cyclery and it was a rock solid stumpjumper 29'r with through axles front and rear. Well worth the rental cost. Also...buy a day pass on the shuttle to the top of the mountain. Flatlanders will die trying to ride to the top....once in oxygen debt it's tough to recover. Best $20 I spent all weekend! Enjoy the ride and stay clean!

Review: Looks like these guys rent bikes in Boulder City right next to the trails: http://allmountaincyclery.com/rentals.html

Cheapest option would be to take a bus from LV to Boulder City but that will take a LONG time. Cab will be much faster but expensive--it's about 30 miles (40 mins.) one way from the strip.

Review: Excellent trail system with miles of trails to choose from. Tech, gravity, and beginner terrain abounds with views of Lake Mead. Great facilities for events like Outdoor Demo and races. Hot, exposed, and loose but this is the desert!
