This easy 7 mile loop is just a taste of the interconnecting biking trails that lead you through well travelled terrain in the Cottonwood Canyon area opposite Red Rock Canyon. You'll gain 800 ft of elevation over 3.5 miles as you meander through a shallow valley on a well marked dirt trail. The half way point will see you above the valley bed with amazing views of Red Rock Canyon, snow-capped Mount Charleston and the Las Vegas Strip. Take a breather on the edge of a large drop near Wilson Tank Overlook. This hike also has Joshua Trees; whistle pigs & chipmunks; birds & a gorgeous array of colourful wild flowers in spring as well as random encounters with mountain bikers.
