Mountain Bike trails for Las Vegas Mountain Bikers in Henderson
Now that it’s off-season, I like to cross-train on my mountain bike. Thanks to an invite to go mountain biking with some friends last week, I was able to ride on some new trails in our neighboring city of Henderson, NV, that were incredibly fun.
If you are looking for a ‘less’ technical dirt trail to ride on, check out the Anthem East Trail, connecting to the McCullough Trail. This is a more beginner friendly trail than the Mustang Loop in Cottonwood. When I say beginner friendly, I’m not talking the ultra beginner… you should still feel comfortable riding on dirt and know how to handle your bike on this type of terrain.
These trails will enable you to better your skills on dirt, and still get a very good workout. There are climbs that will have you huffing and puffing, and some fun downhills that will have you woo-hooing! There are singletrack trails, and then wide doubletrack trails. There’s packed dirt, there’s sand, there’s gravel (and as you ride more on McCullough trail, the gravel thickens). There are neat dips in the road with flat rock surfaces to roll over. It really is a fun trail to ride on, and the more I go, the more I enjoy it. (Even if I fall!). lol.
Take a snack and stop off at the many scenic, covered areas and relax and take in the views. They are incredible!
For more information on these trails, visit the City of Henderson’s Parks and Recreation Website, or view the maps here:

There is also a very cool map of all the trails in Henderson, NV.
NOTE: Some surfaces are paved, some dirt. The best thing to do is go check them out first, or post a question, asking if anyone has ridden them on our forums. You can hike many of these trails as well, so you may want to hike first, and then bike. No matter what, use them. The city created them for our enjoyment, so let’s put them to great use.
Download and follow along the route on your Garmin or GPS enabled device.
