Background

During my last US trip we were able to do a Las Vegas Bootleg Canyon MTB Ride at Interbike, one of the largest bicycle shows in the US. On the demo day we traveled to Bootleg Canyon bike park to do some Las Vegas rocky ride!

Very rocky here, better to have some protection gears…

First Attempt

After getting our bikes from our friend Pivot, we started heading toward the truck stop. Interbike’s demo day provided truck transportation uphill.

Toward starting point!

The transportation truck.

To go up the hill, we had to hold on to our bikes and held tight, so we won’t fall off the truck when going through rough roads!

At a point we waited for the other truck to come down, then we started the bumpy road ascending up the hill!

At the Top

Soon we arrived at the hill top, the starting point of many trails here for our Las Vegas Bootleg Canyon MTB Ride.

Awesome desert canyon.

The road that went to the radar station was closed.

The pivot bike I used.

We first went onto a wrong trail (Skyline) that was too difficult for us, and did quite a bit hiking…

Small little trail head on the side.

The trail at the bottom was the right trail :-(.

After certain point I decided to bail out and hiked down the trail. Indeed the bottom trail was much pleasant.

After some rides we arrived at where our truck waited for the other truck.

From here we choose the easy trail back: the Girl Scout. Nice and smooth.

After some nice down hill riding we reached the trail end and headed back to the main road, going back from some water suppliers. It was very hot and dry here!

Second Attempt

Having enough water supply we were ready for our second attempt of our Las Vegas Bootleg Canyon MTB Ride.

Waiting for the truck.

This time I was able to ride at the front of the truck and got some nice views!

Boy Scout Trail

On the top we made sure this time we rode the correct Boy Scout trail. The trick was to do a right turn at this small little sign.

West Leg Trail

As we again arrived at the middle point, this time we decided to ride the trail above Girl Scout Trail: West Leg.

West Leg goes up!

It turned out this was a pretty difficult trail for us, with lots of ups and downs as well as rock passing!
