Las Vegas Horseback Riding
Cowboy Trail Rides. The best way to explore the mountains of Red Rock National Conservation Area is by horseback, and Cowboy Trail Rides has it covered. The outfitter runs one-hour, half-, and full-day trips from a location just east of the Red Rock Visitor Center. Some of the trips include lunch or dinner. Scenic packages include the Sunset BBQ Ride (1 hour 45 minutes; $169 per person) and the WOW ride (5 hours; $329 per person). Beautiful views of the Strip give way to desert wilderness. Keep your eyes peeled for jackrabbits, Joshua trees, and other notable desert life. The view of the Strip isn't too shabby either.
