Your self-guided tour will begin with hotel pickup and transfer to the starting point in the Las Vegas neighborhood of Summerlin. You'll be provided with all the necessary equipment such as a helmet, bottles of water and an electric bike.
These e-bikes are pedal-assist and you'll pedal them just like you do a regular bike except that the electric assist takes the strain out of the hills and headwinds. You will be amazed how easy they are to operate and are able to go a maximum speed on 20mph. After a safety orientation and practice ride you will be ready to head up to the Red Rock Canyon on a 4-mile bike lane before entering the Red Rock National Conservation Area. Once inside the park, glide along the 13-mile canyon paved scenic byway to reach an elevation of 4,800-feet with many places to stop.
Red Rock Canyon is only a few miles west of Las Vegas and is estimated to be 190 million years old and is also home to over 200 different animals including coyotes, burros, bighorn sheeps, wild horses, turtles and much more. You will be able to photograph the display of a wide variety of beautiful landscapes within a short period of time. From red sandstone of the Calico Basin on the east to the red striped wooded mountains on the west, this is almost like a paradise for cycling enthusiasts. Exploring this loop by electric bike will give you a great overview of the scenery much better than hiking the trails.
The beauty of Red Rock will not go unnoticed to you, it is truly the natural jewel that Las Vegas residents take serious pride in preserving and this unique environment will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime. This tour is a perfect way to see what Red Rock Canyon has to offer and you will find here on this loop: Calico Basin, Icebox Canyon, Pine Creek Canyon, Turtlehead Mountain and more.
After riding approximately 22-miles through the canyon and surrounding areas you will return to the meeting location in Summerlin for your return transfer back to your hotel.
