Great for intermediate to advanced level cyclists; enjoyed by both road cyclists and mountain bikers.
This is a great place for your summer riding. Cooler than the Las Vegas valley, its Pinion pine trees keep you covered from the summer sun. This area is great for the rider who likes to “climb the hill” with fast descents back into the valley.
