What To Expect

Take a break from the glitz and glam of Las Vegas and see a different yet equally colorful side of Nevada. Start your trip with convenient round-trip transportation from a Las Vegas hotel. Ride out into the Old West in the evening as the sun begins its descent.

Do your best cowboy or cowgirl impression as you mount a horse and ride into the Red Rock Canyon. The rust-colored walls and deep gorges are a jaw-dropping sight from the top of a desert mountain as the sunsets around you.

Let your horses rest back at camp while you rustle up an appetite for dinner. The campfire flames lick the night sky as the moon and stars light up your night. Steak, chicken, or fish is available with sides of salad, cowboy potatoes, and baked beans. Toast to the night with s’mores than return to Las Vegas with a full belly.

Wonderful Excursion
Lisa_M, Feb 2024
Beautiful scenery, wonderful guides-wranglers, easy ride through the red rock canyons. The steak was a huge bone-in ribeye cooked to order. We enjoyed the campfire and stores. Fantastic way to see the sunset.
This was a nice way to...
Crystal_S, Feb 2024
This was a nice way to see the desert outside of Vegas. The wranglers were knowledgeable and safety conscious, the mules and horses were well cared for and behaved, and the sights were amazing! Also had a great steak meal afterwards. Highly recommend!
Fun experience

A great experience all around. The wranglers were knowledgeable and really helpful. The trail is simple but lots to look at and the views were awesome. The food was also great. A great Valentine’s Day experience for my girlfriend and I.
Just book it!!! You will love it.

Outstanding adventure at Red Rock Canyon Sunset Horseback ride
Kim_S, Jan 2024
My wife and I had an outstanding adventure with the Red Rock Canyon crew. The folks were very pleasant and made our time with them a safe and memorable experience. 90 minutes was just the right amount of time for the ride. The horses all were sure-footed, well-groomed, and happy. The trail ride was excellent; with many opportunities to take photos. The knowledgeable trail leaders - one at the front, middle, and end - shared what they knew about the history of Red Rock Canyon. We learned that the canyon was once a grand lake and they pointed out fossils to prove it. The Bar-B-Q was very well prepared and tasted really good. Their chocolate-chip cookie smore was a taste of heaven to a chocolate lover, like me. (grilled over an open fire marshmallow between two chocolate-chip cookies). There is nothing negative to report, only positive.
Calming ride with a great dinner and desert
Eugene_K, Jan 2024
Relaxing horseback riding through the canyons of Red Rock. It was a beautiful sight to see. Kelly, our guide, was so friendly and helpful during our time. The steak at the end was cooked perfectly and we ended the night with cowboy s'mores and sharing fun stories with each other. Really great way to get out of the lights of Vegas and meditate in nature
New Years eve fun ride.
Curt_Y, Jan 2024
The Wranglers were Knowledgeable and made everyone feel at ease. They took time to move around during the ride to talk to everyone. The horses/mules were mild tempered and easy to ride. I hadn't been on a horse in 30 years but this was a great change of pace from downtown Las Vegas on new years eve weekend with all the crazy people. The ribeye steak was phenomenal. The campfire at the end was nice with "Cowboy Smores". We were picked up right at our hotel and taken home which was a plus for us since we didn't have a car.
Wonderful!
Lisa_R, Dec 2023
We returned for this experience and again it was just as wonderful! The handlers are excellent and the horseback ride is fantastic! We also loved the meal afterwards. Highly recommend for families!
Must do

Saddle up partner...great way to complete our vegsd Xmas vacation
Paul_T, Dec 2023
Superior experience . Wranglers were outstanding; ride was sublime and the steak...the steak was delicious !
Good tour not great
Daughter, Dec 2023
We had a good time. The shuttle driver was prompt and picked us up at the hotel on the strip. I would say if we knew to dress warmer it would have been more enjoyable. Gets cold in this area when sun sets. Must everyone froze since it was 68-70 when we left for the tour. Also you ride mostly mules not horses. Very disappointed since it was my daughter’s birthday and there were horses assigned but the guide would not give her a horse when we asked but we noticed all the guides ride horses. Odd when they push mules on patrons. Did not feel that $200 a person was worth mule riding. Our mules were retired from grand canyon trails and tired after 3 rides a day. Best part was the steak dinner. Delicious food! But I did not pay $200 for a $15 steak. Scenery was beautiful but a ride is not needed to look at the dessert. And helmets should be mandatory. Trails are too dangerous for patrons waiving helmets. Most riders are first timers as I saw in my group. If the mule threw you your head would hit nothing but rocks. A cowboy or sports cloth hat would not protect you. Be smart.
Beautiful country
raul_b, Dec 2023
Great experience for a novice rider, staff were extremely friendly, and helpful. We definitely will be back.. cowboys in the making..
Perfect afternoon!!!
Julia_H, Dec 2023
the staff was excellent!! Kat and Riley and the other wrangler were so professional and so friendly! The food was awesome! Huge bone in ribeye. What a great afternoon!!!!!
Mules and Steaks
ray_j, Dec 2023
I enjoyed meeting the mules, they seem to have much more personality than horses! And, they have really big ears! Scenery was fantastic. Oddly the dinner included the best steak I have had in a very long time. I had assumed the meal would be just average - definitely not so!
Defent go do while in Vegas!
Wesley_B, Dec 2023
