Logandale Trail System

Description

This trail system sits on the scenic eastern boundary of the Valley of Fire about 45 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
The area consists of one main loop and a handful of side trails that wind through a chain of interesting rock formations
A massive amount of effort went into acquiring and managing these trails, which you can read all about at the main trail head. If you pay attention you’ll see some tarantulas, maybe some desert big horn sheep or other desert wildlife, but perhaps more interesting are the petroglyphs (primitive drawings) found on the rock formations. This is a fun place to camp, and a decent place to ride, with nothing too challenging, and you can ride from your campsite all the way into the town of Overton for supplies Large ATV tour groups run through this area daily.
An extensive system of off-road trails provides an excellent way to tour the colorful, red sandstone eastern boundary of Valley of Fire State Park as well as cruise to Logandale, across the Moapa Valley to Overton. Be aware that ATVs and other motorized vehicles also use the trail, which winds through public land.
Type: Mountain biking, Hiking, Camping, Horseback, ATV, 4 Wheel
