What You Can Expect
Hop on your preferred mountain bike – the Santa Cruz Superlite 29er, Santa Cruz Tallboy LT 29er or a Specialized Stump-Jumper FSR 29er (your choice when booking) – and ride with your professional guide, who visits this area regularly and will offer expert narration about the sights you’ll see. All equipment is included on this tour: bike rental, helmet and water.
The Mustang Trail is a single-track path that provides a great introduction to mountain biking. Located on the scenic Keystone thrust fault, the trail begins with a 1-mile (1.6-km) climb followed by a 2-mile (3.22-km) descent through the foothills of Black Velvet. With a quick pace and minimal climbs, the trail is ideal for the athletic beginner and offer exciting extensions for more experienced riders, as well. Your total biking distance is 7 to 12 miles (11 to 19 km).

I had never mountain biked before this trip and wanted to see the desert. While I found the experience challenging I really enjoyed it and want to pursue the sport at home . Brandon was a very fine guide , knowledgable considerate and professional. I would reccomend this trip for any reasonably fit
This tour was amazing!
Brandon is super knowledgeable and fun! My boyfriend and I did this last week. We’re from Oregon, in our young 30s, and are relatively outdoorsy, healthy, and athletic. I went into this as a newbie mountain biker (although with cycling class experience) and the bf went into this with mountain biking experience, but only as a kid (20+ years ago). He did okay, but I did not.
Spinning/cycling class skills do not transfer over to mountain biking well. I had difficulty learning how to balance my weight, position my body, and apply the brakes. The terrain had loose gravel, large rocks, and prickly plants along the narrow trail. On one of the first dips, my brain froze and I applied the L brake (front wheel) because I’m L-handed, rather than the R (rear). I went head first into the prickly plants and rocks. My left thigh was pinned under the handlebars until I unfroze. This is not a trail to practice and experiment on for the 1st time. During the switchbacks, I was intimidated and got off my bike and walked which was allowed and encouraged. The tour guide and our fellow rider rode ahead and then the 4 of us would reconvene for briefing before the next portion. This was great because they were able to do their thing while the bf and I took it slow. Overall, the bf had minimal problems with the trail, unlike me. Although both of us were panting heavily during the climbs due to the change in elevation, dry air, and hot sun.
The trail and landscape was beautiful. We got some great photos and captured many of my falls on my GoPro which has been comical. I’m still bruised and limping 1 week later, but battle wounds are the best. That’s one thing to note. Ladies, do this tour at the *END* of your trip if you want to look good. I looked all 50-shades-of-gray, beat up and bruised, at the pool and got many inquisitive looks. Also I was limping which meant no heels for the rest of the trip. But overall, Brandon was the best! I’d do this tour again or even try mountain biking again!
The tour was absolutely fantastic as was our guide Adam! The trail was both challenging and fun at the same time - and like nothing the four of us had experienced before. Adam was excellent as our tour guide! I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys biking and who wants to do something off the beaten path from the typical Las Vegas experience.
Great guide, beautiful scenery. Be prepared for a workout! As someone who has only done some light road biking, it was a whole different world. However, it was easy to pick up with help from the guide and I had the time of my life.
This tour was brilliant Brandon's knowledge was excellent very informative. Beginners half day tour was quite tough but exhilarating. The quality of the bikes were exceptional. I would highly recommend this as a change from the Las Vegas strip.
First time in Vagas area and had a fun ride in Red Rocks. Great tour guide made it better.
Despite 40 degree Celsius heat, this was a fantastic fun bike tour. Our guide kept a great pace, made sure we stayed hydrated and entertained us the whole afternoon. Planning to come back with the kids!!
The tour was incredible! The guide made sure everyone on the trip was traveling at a comfortable pace and made the challenging terrain fun. Plenty of water was provided and if I am in Las Vegas again I will definitely do this again.
Best part of our Vegas trip! Exhilarating, fun and challenging! Our guide Brandon was the best we could ask for. Very encouraging and was able to meet our experience level or biking just right. Very informative or the local terrain, animals and fauna. Would love to do this again in the future!!!
