Amargosa Trail is located 11 miles west-northwest of Boulder City Nevada. The trailhead is car accessible. November and March are the best months to enjoy this ride.
Overview: A short but a-kicking mountain bike trail with more than 800 feet of elevation gain in approx 1 mile. Climbs up and over the edge of the McCullough Hills, some great volcanic foothills of the McCullough Range. Unrelenting switchbacks become progressively steeper from the trailhead, then you sail down the back side. Sweat back up the back side for your reward - bombing down the switchbacks to your vehicle.
