Red Rock Canyon is just 15 miles west of Las Vegas and features some of the most spectacular views in this part of the country. Red and cream sandstone formations, waterfalls, rock engravings, feral horses, wild burros, bighorn sheep, coyotes, desert tortoise, and a variety of desert plant life is a glimpse of what this scenic adventure has to offer.

    This was an amazing morning, one of the best family outings! Our kids are 19-22 and neither my hubby of myself had been on a bike for years. Tour guides were very professional, focused on bike safety and were extremely knowledgeable regarding the beautiful area where we road. Beyond friendly staff, e-bikes were a blast!! I’d definitely recommend -in my opinion, far superior to riding in a jeep. Red Rock Canyon electric bike tour was a great value-Cost included round-trip transportation from our hotel!
