Best Bike Rides Las Vegas

This ride makes its way through the wetlands in southeast Las Vegas. It is one of the best rides for seeing the many different species of birds, mammals, and reptiles that call this unique area home, making it one of the top family bike rides in Las Vegas.

One of the things deserts are famous for is mirages. Picture a weary traveler, head wrapped in a white linen scarf in a vain attempt to block the flesh-burning rays of the sun, stumbling through sand that seems to deepen with every step. Suddenly, off on the horizon, an oasis appears; one with trees.

A great change of pace from the mountains and desert trails. If you like bird watching you will LOVE this place!! I saw ducks, pelicans, swans, and even turtles in the water. Although it is near town, you can feel remote while you are there. The running water is relaxing.
