Saddle Up and Ride
Horseback riding is allowed as we provide spectacular scenic vistas of Lake Mead and rugged and isolated backcountry. Striking and dramatic physical features include deep canyons, dry washes, sheer cliffs, distant mountain ranges, the lakes, colorful soils and rock formations and mosaics of different vegetation.
Horseback Riding Locations
Horses and pack animals may be ridden or used throughout the recreation area. Around 50% of the River Mountains Loop Trail is open to equestrian users.The equestrian section begins at mile marker 1 just north of Railroad Pass in Henderson and ends at mile marker 14.5 near Las Vegas Bay within the park. The equestrian trail parallels the paved trail.
Please stop by the Lake Mead Visitor Center for suggestions.
