Mt. Charleston- DH- Rooster's Ridge - TRAIL

Mt. Charleston- DH- Rooster's Ridge - Trail, Las Vegas, Nevada

This trail start at the Rooster's Ridge parking area. Hop the curb just right of the sign and your on the trail. You'll descend a couple hundred feet hang a sharp right and go straight into a 2 1/2 foot drop. You'll then find your self in a clearing. Go right into the trees and you end up in a technical downhill wash that will really give your suspension a work out. Go left and you will weave your wave through trees and G-outs for about 9miles. Some pedaling is required on each trail but more so on the tree winding one. Very little climbing though. From either trail there are intermediate forks that take you away from and bring you back to the main two trails. If you go long you will end up at a large tree next to the Kyle canyon highway. If you go short you will end up at a large gravel parking area just east of the Mt Charleston Hotel. These are great fun with lots of friends to take turns shuttling.

Its a simple trail. really easy. dusty and rocky. A couple of small jumps. This place is easy to shuttle, and could be a rad riding spot if someone brought some tools out here and built some stuff.

The trail is actually close to Robbers Roost. the first part is soft down hill with some tight,steep turns. The balance is great winding singletrack which is perfect as you are 20+ degrees cooler than down in the valley. Don't expect epic downhill! there have been some attempts at making some launches and jumps but someone dismantles them. Climate, and proximity to vegas make it a fun cool trail.

park at Robbers Roost and ride just west of the info board, or drive farther up and park in a pull off area, ride down on pavement 100yds and climb a steep hill on the left, from there go down and enjoy.
