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: 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: Nothing like some awesome downhill right next to vegas. Can get a little too loose in some areas so don't go too big until you see whats below

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!

Review: Great ride with lots of flowing singletrack. This is for intermediate riders and above. My only knock on the place is that is a bit far outside of the Vegas area. But the long flowing singletrack and technical rocky sections make up for that. A must ride!

Review: Yes, the trailhead is on Canyon road ... Proceed for about half a mile "up,the hill" once it becomes dirt to the trail head, which includes some shelters and a restroom.

Disappointingly little signage on trail. Tried to get a map from a local bike shop (didn't have one) and the bootlegcanyon.org website no longer responds. This is disappointing, for a supposed "epic" location.

Trails are very rocky and technical. Pushed my AM bike to beyond where I am comfortable.
