We made it…..The Review-Journal’s 2011 Best of Las Vegas “Best Place to Ride a Bike” R.J.’s choice. They didn’t list the entire trail, but that is probably because the writer-rider hasn’t ridden the entire trail system as yet. I concur with this selection from Railroad Pass east to Boulder City as it has much to look at from a views point-of-view; plus you have the historic train rides on the weekend to look forward too.
You will also see that the River Mountain Trail is selected as “Best Place to Hike”; this is actually a different trail but shares a trail-head in Boulder City. This trail was built by the (C.C.C.) Civilian Conservation Corp. circa 1934 -1936 and is a six mile round trip hike to the top of Red Mountain in the River Mountains. You will find a more detailed write up elsewhere in this BLOG.
