Trails of Glory Las Vegas Directions:
Directions to the fee area (scenic loop):
From Las Vegas, Red Rocks can be reached by heading west on Charleston Boulevard which will turn into State Route 159. Just follow State Route 159 west until you see the entrance.
Directions to Cottonwood Valley (the only area that allows mountain biking):
From Charleston Boulevard (State Route 159) drive west past the entrance to Red Rocks. Continue driving past Spring Mountain State Park. The road will change direction and appear to head back towards Las Vegas. Continue driving until you reach State Route 160. Turn right onto State Route 160 and head west. After about 4.7 miles there will be a parking lot on the right (Late Night parking lot), and another parking lot on the left a little farther. These parking lots can be somewhat hard to find the first time, if you reach the mountains you have gone too far.
