Las Vegas 4×4 trails offer the explorer an opportunity to explore the Nevadan desert beyond the reach of the bright lights of the Las Vegas strip. The BLM Southern Nevada District Office manages more than three million acres of Mojave Desert in Clark and Nye counties. These trails offer scenery which varies from dramatically colorful geologic land forms and largely unspoiled panoramic vistas of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area to remote and rugged wild landscapes of Gold Butte Back Country Byway.

Recreation opportunities abound and viewing sites for desert plants and animals are easily accessible.   The Las Vegas and Clark county offers year round 4×4 destinations and trails.  In the hot summer months a trail can take you down to the waters edge for a cool swim the Lake Mead, Lake Mojave or the Colorado River itself, while Mount Charleston  offer islands in the sky to get above the heat.  

Additionally Las Vegas offers a great jump off point for trips into the wilderness including Death Valley National Park and the Mojave Road. On a personal note, you have not lived until you pull into one of the casinos for an overnight, after being out on the trails for a week.
