Surf And Turf



Get dusty on miles of single-track, and cool off in the refreshing waters of Lake Mead. Adventure seekers will love this multi-sport trip that begins with mountain biking and ends with kayaking.
Your adventure starts as you are fitted to your mountain bike. Views of Lake Mead are ever present as you drop nearly 1500 feet in elevation, making your way toward the Hoover Dam.
The trail winds past Heminway Park, a favorite shady place for local Desert Bighorn sheep. Keep your eyes open and cameras ready, as herds gather in large numbers.
Cruise past creosote bushes and blooming cactus, through 5 historic railroad tunnels as the trail delivers you to the Hoover Dam. Explore this magnificent structure, before returning to the trail.
A few more miles of biking and kayaks suddenly appear. Here you will swap your mountain bikes for kayaks, giving your legs a rest and putting your arms to work.
Your destination is the Boulder Islands, where a picnic style lunch will be served as you relax in the warm sun. Water temperatures on the lake are perfect for swimming, and on a hot day it is the perfect way to cool down.
Wooden skeletons of sunken boats are exposed as you explore the area in your kayak. Trout and striped bass are seen jumping in the water or swimming under your kayak. Enjoy a leisurely paddle back to shore to top of an extraordinary day of biking and kayaking on Lake Mead.
