We are located in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. When you arrive to our ranch, there is a dirt parking lot with a huge sign that says Horseback Riding. You go through the gate under the sign and drive up the short, well maintained dirt road, to the horses, and our office at the top of the hill. Up there you will find our office where we will sign you up then get you on your horse at the corral for your ride.

Pleasant experience and the staff was very friendly! Took pictures at the top of the canyon which was great to have as a memory and then riding on the edge of the rim was exhilarating!

We went on this ride last May. We have been on several horse back rides since then. This was the best we have done. We are back in vegas now and going to book a ride again.

We LOVED this experience. We chose the sunset ride (about a 1.5-hour ride). It was our first time riding. I rode Dusty, who likes to follow the leader (Shane) and my husband had Riley. The terrain was rocky but the horses/mules took it like champs....More

We just went on a wonderful ride with Big Jim. The horses and mules are wonderful and the scenery is gorgeous. Cowboy Trail Rides is a Las Vegas gem nestled into the Red Rock Conservation Area.

The sunset ride is incredible. You can still ride while it is light out but being later in the day, it is not as hot. Plus the views and sunset are amazing....nothing like it. Food at the end of the ride is incredible... More
