Start your railway adventure by checking in at Rail Explorers Las Vegas next to the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Boulder City and getting ready to pedal! To explore Boulder City’s railroad tracks, you’ll sit on a cart that is powered by your pedaling. You can ride in pairs or as groups of four. Pairs cost $85, and groups of four cost $150. If you’re a local, show your ID for a 10% discount.
You’ll ride four miles downhill to Railroad Pass. On the way, you’ll have a wide-open view of the surrounding desert. You’ll then have a 30-minute break before riding back to the starting point on a historic train! They recommend that you bring your own water and snacks.
Take this ride during the day or at sunset. If you opt to ride later in the day, you can use the firepits at the rest area to make s’mores! Whichever time of day you decide to visit, the experience will take about an hour and a half.

If you haven’t explored Boulder City before, it’s worth checking out while you’re in the area. It’s a small town with some unique local shops and restaurants. It also serves as the gateway to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam.
