Need Trail options

I am heading to Vegas this weekend I am looking to get out and have some fun I have not lived in Vegas for over 5 yrs now. I currently live in Cali. and looking to get out while I am up there in Vegas.

Any trails with some decent rock crawling. if some folks want to go also I am cool with that also. I will be there sat and Sunday staying at the strip. something some what close to the city.

Yah I think I would try for Rocky Gap, nice little rock garden but nothing to over the top however I try to avoid that trail if there is 2 much snow just lfor the cliff edges in some spots. Wish I could go out and run with ya but I will be working boooooo.

Also the video shows them doing the harder side of the wash lol

Thanks you 2 for replying..

I am going to check out the video now. I am coming down well originally my dad's 90th b day party. But he is in the hospital so that is cancelled so we are going to visit him and we already got the hotel for the weekend. So we were are going to indulge in 5 star living and dining for the weekend. And pulling up with a dirty dusty jeep at the valet haha

Do not be afraid of that video (that is some gnarly crawling). I did the trail in a fully stock TJ Rubicon in September. I used the bypass (through part of the creek/up on the berm) around the real nastiness in the wash. There were a couple of gents (built orange JK Rub and a silver TJ--love that orange JK) running the hard part down and it was rather "interesting". After the bypass, I was planning on turning around just in case I got hung up, but the other two Jeeps were nice enough to let me become a group of three and continue. I went east to west (I'd suggest going west to east though) and hit the rock garden after doing most of the trail (it is pretty close to Lovell Canyon Rd). So if you don't like it/the odds, you can always turn around and be back on pavement rather quick. Once east of the the rock garden, the trail is very tame. My TJ transfer case skid/shovel is the only thing that hit in the rock garden. I suspect your skids won't even come in contact/no issue. Trail conditions (outside of snow) should be pretty close to what I encountered in September.

Logandale Trails (Google it) an hour north of Vegas. Worth the ride.

That's far from bad! Looks fun for sure not scored to scrape things underneath my jeep. I am thinking of this one looks doable for a solo trip.

If so, I had the black stock TJ, wife and 2 little ones along? I offered up my strap to move a boulder that made getting out of the wash a bit less gnarly for your trailing JK? If so, "hi!".

Good times.
