Cowboy Trail RidesThis horseback-riding outfitter features a variety of quarter-, half-, and full-day trips into Red Rock National Conservation Area. Rides wind through desert landscape, most commonly to a vista point overlooking the Strip, before circling back to camp. Along the way you might spot jackrabbits, Joshua trees, and more. A number of the treks, which are available to equestrians of all skill levels, also include meals. Perhaps the most popular option is a two-hour Canyon Rim Ride, which passes ancient caves and geological formations. But the most memorable of the offerings—the appropriately named WOW Ride—takes participants on a five-hour excursion that includes steep inclines with views of Lake Mead National Recreation Area and the West Rim of the Grand Canyon.
