Is it the hottest place on earth? Actually no, that's nearby Death Valley, but you get the point! This trail system sits on the scenic eastern boundary of the Valley of Fire about 45 miles northeast of Las Vegas. The riding area consists of one main easy loop and a handful of sandy side trails that wind through a chain of rock formations.

A massive amount of effort went into acquiring and managing these trails and you can read all about it at the main trailhead. If you pay attention you'll see some tarantulas, and maybe some desert big horn sheep or other desert wildlife, but perhaps most interesting thing to see are the petroglyphs. These primitive drawings can be found on the rock formations at few locations.

Overall, this is a fun place to camp, and a decent place to ride for beginners and tourists, with nothing too challenging on the main loop. (If you are going to play around in some of the brushy areas with deep sand and blind corners we recommend a whip flag.)

If you are adventurous you can ride the ridgetop trails or ride from your campsite all the way into the town of Overton for supplies. Large ATV tour groups run through this area daily. ATV Tours Info...

Logandale Trails

The trails wind through these interesting rock formations with sparse desert vegetation. There are numerous inviting camping spots (designated) surrounded by the red rock walls and green shrubs.

You really can't beat the scenery if you are out for an easy ride and camp. It is the perfect place to take a first time rider and get them hooked!

Suzuki RM 100 on the trail.

There are a couple of cool points where the trail itself is solid rock, but nothing too difficult or steep on the main loop. The main loop is commonly used for tours.

This is the cut through trail that shortens the main outer loop. It has some good sandy turns and great views.

A solid rock step down on the cut through trail makes for a fun challenge for beginners to conquer. As long as you stick to the main trail there is nothing dangerous or scary.

This jeep was doing some rock climbing on one of the play areas.

Taking a short break to check out the petroglyphs. Unfortunately no kickstands on the RM two-strokes.

The side trails have some pretty deep sand. Winding sand trails like this are a lot of fun but you will wish there was more of it.

The outer loop is basically just a gravel road in parts and can get a little boring.

Great views from the main loop. If you know the way, you can ride all the way into Overton.
