What You Can Expect

Hoover Dam Mountain Bike Tour

Hoover Dam Mountain Bike Tour

Following pickup at your Las Vegas hotel, travel to the trailhead near the Hoover Dam.

Disembark to meet your local adventure guide and get fitted for a bike and safety equipment. Listen to an orientation of the area and a safety briefing before hopping on your bike and heading down the trail. This beginner-friendly trail includes a relaxed, downhill ride toward Lake Mead. Listen as your guide points out local desert plant and animal life, and keep your eyes peeled for bighorn sheep. Be sure to bring your camera, as the group will pause a few times at scenic lookouts for photo ops. 

Stop to explore the Lake Mead Visitors Center, then head off down to the shores of Lake Mead and jump in if the weather is warm. Back on the trailhead, enter a series of tunnels that were once used to transport concrete used in the dam's construction.

At the Hoover Dam, dismount your bike and take some time to explore the Visitors Center or sign up for the Discovery Tour (own expense). Stroll around the magnificent structure and admire the views of the Colorado River. Then enjoy a boxed lunch and climb back in to your vehicle for transportation back to Las Vegas and drop-off at your hotel.

We did this tour as part of our honeymoon in September 2015. From start to finish the tour was very professional run. We got picked up right on time, and went to Boulder City were the tour starts, there was only 4 of us on the tour. We did a quick safety brief with our tour guide Gary, who was very approachable and answered all questions we asked during the day. We picked our lunch up and started the ride, the views were spectacular from start to feel finish. We biked down an old railway line and stopped off halfway down and climbed some of the rocks to get a better view of the lake and Gary gave us an insight of all he knew as well as his personal experiences in the area. We arrived at the Hoover Dam and parked our bikes up, we spent about 30 minutes at the dam taking photos and learning more about the dam before heading back in the van to have our lunch in a park in Boulder City.
I would highly recommend this to anyone and they will cater for any ability on the bikes, you see so much more than you would on a tour bus or a helicopter. Thank you.

Great tour! The ride to Hoover Dam is a great way to experience the area. The ride starts on River Mountain Loop trail which is totally paved and easy to ride with only a few manageable climbs and beautiful views as you get close to Lake Mead. Down at the lake you switch to a gravel trail that takes you through the old railroad tunnels and stunning landscape along the trail. At the end of the trail we hiked over the O'Callaghan-Tilman bridge and then back down and over the Dam. Our guide was knowledgeable about the area, trails and the dam. He carried plenty of cool water for us and even as hot as the day was it was easy to stay hydrated. We ended the day with lunch in a nearby park watching mountain goats graze and enjoying conversation with the tour group. It was a great way to explore Hoover Dam and one of the highlights of my Vegas week!

This was a birthday treat and whilst I did doubt my sanity at times biking in 100F termperatures, the guide Scott was excellent and ensured we were well looked after, had plenty of stops to rest and took on lots of water and energy bars. Most of this bike ride is on the level or down hill so great fun at times, with only a few climbs that required a bit of effort! The scenery as you would expect was fantastic and the lunch more than earmed when we arrived at the Hoover Dam. Great trip, well organised and worth the tour.
