Bicyclists are welcome to ride at Lake Mead National Recreation Area on park roads, on routes designated for bicycle use. Approved backcountry roads are designated routes and are marked with a yellow arrow sign with a number on it.
Bicycles are subject to the Entrance Fee Requirements at Lake Mead NRA. A daily pass (valid for 1-7 days) for individuals can be purchased for $15 from entrance stations located throughout the park, or at the Park Headquarters lobby front desk in Boulder City, Nevada. Annual Passes can also be used for bicycles. Please keep your pass with you as you ride through the park. For more information on Entrance Fees in the park, please visit our Fees and Passes page.
If you plan to ride at the park, please be aware of the rules in Title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulation, as the following are prohibited:
Also, please use extreme caution when bicycling on park roads as some areas have low visibility, no shoulder and are steep with windy turns. Please stay on the roads so our fragile desert soils stay protected.
It is always a good idea to carry plenty of water, cycle with a friend, and let someone know your itinerary.
