We came to Vegas for some Spring Break family riding and had a blast out at the Late Nite trail head. Head west from the parking lot for some beginner friendly riding. We rode the Beginner Loop and a bit of the Inner Loop over to the Blue Diamond trail. What a blast!!! I have a 10 year old who is a decent rider a a 45 year old wife who is very cautious and both had to walk just one rocky climb out of a wash. This trail has some REALLY fun flowy sections that had all 6 of us hootin' and hollerin'.
Head south out of the parking to ride 3 Mile Smile. My 18 year old and I rode this trail to it's completion at the south end and loved it. I'm 50 and starting to show some caution in my trail selection but there was nothing that was over my head including White Rhino and some switchbacks at Techno. Coming back down is amazing, with enough obstacles to keep it interesting but fast enough to keep it fun. I just follow my 18 year old and watch him disappear in the distance and remember the days when I was fearless. This is a MUST RIDE if your in the Vegas area.
