October is one of the most beautiful months in Las Vegas. The weather is sunny, cool and perfect for getting outdoors for some fresh air activities and I found some great hiking and biking trails that you may have never even heard of!
If I wanted to shoot off for a ride, I could easily find some incredible trails in Lake Mead, Red Rock Canyon or Mount Charleston, but due to recent government shutdown, they have closed all the beautiful national parks that are best taken advantage of at this time. So I had to go looking for other fun routes. My first thought was why not just ride down the Vegas Strip, BAD IDEA, it’s just not safe and the stop and go takes away the momentum from a great bike ride, although it would make for a fun day of walking the 7.5 miles. Then I stumbled upon this great site : NeonToNature.org http://www.gethealthyclarkcounty.org/neon2nature/findatrail.php
It has map view and can locate trails from any location you are in and has all the info you would need from mileage, pet friendly, degree of difficulty, ameneties etc. Click and plan out a fun hike or ride on your next day off, and experience another side that Vegas has to offer. I’m planning mine right now. Stay Inspired, Nicole
