About this Las Vegas, Nevada tour
Step away from the bright lights of Las Vegas, and experience Nevada True with a ride on the wild side. A short drive from the city and you're back in the legendary West, following trails worn by mustangs, pack trains, cowboys and Indians, and even some notorious outlaws. Write your own story as you ride along, or just listen to the trail hands as they guide you through a sun-washed, mythical landscape.
Rise early and depart for the ranch at 7 a.m., arriving just in time to enjoy a hearty breakfast before your ride: flapjacks, bacon, sausage and orange juice. There is truly nothing like watching the Nevada desert come to life as the sun rises.
The ranch hands will pick the right mount just for you, with a horse for every level of skill. After your horses are saddled, you're set for an hour-long trail ride through the thrilling high desert of Nevada. Don't let the word "desert" fool you. The geography of Nevada is a landscape of startling contrasts: yes, there are sandy expanses, but they're broken up by seasonal riverbeds and sculptured canyons,
Mojave, a Spanish corruption of a Native word that means "beside the water," is indeed dry, but intermittent streams and springs provide habitat for 2,000 species of plants, including the iconic Joshua tree (the symbol of the High Desert) and curious critters like the desert tortoise, bighorn sheep and fleet jackrabbits. Answer the call of your inner cowboy on this early morning adventure, the jackpot for travelers seeking stunning views and rugged, wild nature.
Slipping through the traces
Some say Nevada, with its vast expanses and small population, is a land without much history. Resurrecting the story of the Spanish Trail has been a challenge for historians and archeologists because, for the outlaws who used the trail, there was little reason to broadcast their goings-on: raiding ranches for horses and preying on vulnerable travelers. No worries, though: today's visitors have little to fear beyond an occasional sunburn.
