Historic Railroad Trail

Not every activity in Las Vegas has to involve a trip to the casino or partying at a night club. The area surrounding Las Vegas is rich with outdoor activities that have nothing to do with gambling. The Historic Railroad Trail, located just 30 minutes from the Las Vegas RV Resort in Boulder City, NV, will take you alongside the southern shores of Lake Mead. Unlike those Las Vegas photos you probably rather keep to yourself, the pictures you snap from your ride on The Historic Railroad Trail will be ones you won’t want to stop showing your friends!
