Itinerary

Included / Not Included – campgrounds


Elevation: 3,700–7,300ft

Day 1:

Death Valley National Park, Spicer Ranch
After meeting in Las Vegas we shuttle to Beatty, Nevada and the all new Spicer Ranch Mountain Bike Park.
This park is purpose built mountain bike trails meshed with wild burro trails making a fantastic array of riding!
Plutonium Ridge (our favorite), takes us far into the backcountry of the Mojave Desert overlooking Beatty
Wash. After descending a fast ridge line back to Spicer Ranch, and if your legs are willing, try out the Dynamite Trail. Exhilarating 2 mile loop!
Total Mileage: 11-15 miles
Terrain: 100% singletrack No van support

Day 2:

Titus Canyon
Titus Canyon - A short 30 minute shuttle takes us to Titus Canyon where we’ll ride up and over White Pass and Red Pass to the top of the Grapevine Mountains. The reward for our climb? A scenic 5,600-foot descent through Titus' increasingly narrow canyon walls to the valley floor. After this spectacular ride, we’ll shuttle back to our camp in Monarch Canyon.
Total mileage: 15 - 26 miles
Terrain: 100% Jeep road 100% van support

Day 3:

Chloride Cliffs
Chloride Cliffs - Leaving camp, we ride up the old Chloride Cliffs jeep road for a rare king-of-the-hill view of both the Badwater lowlands and Mt. Whitney. Today’s highlight is a chance to prospect abandoned crystal mines in the top of the mountain. Later, we’ll descend nearly 2,000 feet back to camp! In the afternoon, an optional two-mile hike through Monarch Canyon offers the opportunity to explore a ghosted stamping mill and a clear portal view from atop a seasonal waterfall.
Total mileage: 12 miles + 2 mile hike
Terrain 100% Jeep road No van support

Day 4:

Sand Dunes and Cottonwood Valley
After packing up, we descend to the bottom of Death Valley on mountain bikes to Mesquite Sand Dunes. Here we will have an hour to explore the beauty of Death Valley and the relaxing wind blown dunes under our feet. Take a quick stop at Stovepipe Wells for some ice cream and lunch than its off to Red Rock Canyon, West Las Vegas.
Once in Red Rock, get ready for some of the fastest, finest single-track in the west! We'll follow some of our
favorite trails in Cottonwood Valley.
We will be having dinner at Bonnie Springs, Old Nevada Ghost Town. Can you say rustic?
Total Mileage: 19 - 30 miles
Terrain: 50% paved, 50% Singletrack, partial van support

Day 5:

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area -Mustang Trails
We start our final day riding Red Rock's Mustang Trail single-track system. Initially stomped out by horses and burros over 100 years ago, these trails are now shared by mountain bikers and wild mustang descendant’s who roam free and are protected in the National Conservation Area. We then ride to the small town of Blue Diamond for lunch before shuttling back to Las Vegas.
Total mileage: 12 - 15 miles
Terrain: 100% Singletrack No van support.

Lodging

This trip features scenic, primitive campsites with no running water. At each of the primitive camps we utilize our own portable toilet, and exercise a leave-no-trace policy. There are hot showers available Day 3 and Night 4; all other nights a solar shower will be available. Cell phone service is extremely spotty during the entire trip, with no service available at our campsites. Our last night we’ll stay inside Red Rock Canyon at the Bonnie Springs, a classic inn with its own reconstructed frontier town.
* It may be the Mojave “desert” and home to some of the hottest temperatures on record, but it sure gets cold at night. Bring a beanie cap and some layers.

Camping gear may be rented or you may bring your own. All of our camping gear is tested and hand-chosen from top manufacturers to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. Our camp gear package includes a tent, sleeping pad, raised cot, sleeping bag, sleeping bag liner, full size pillow, and ground tarp. Your Trip Leaders will always help to ensure your equipment is set up properly each night.
