This is the beginning of a series of zip-lines that end up at the bottom of the mountain. The end of this zip is on the distant ridge – looks fun!
If you look close you can see a series of trails heading down this hill side. These are part of a series of down hill mountain biking trails known as the Bootleg Canyon Trails. On certain days of the week there is a shuttle that hauls riders back to the top. Add Lake Mead and the Colorado River, and I gotta say, there are a lot of recreation opportunities in this area.
I originally drove / hiked to the top of this mountain thinking it would offer a nice view of the Las Vegas Strip, but it was too far away. It did provide nice views of the town, lake and this zip-line!
