Where to ride near Vegas?

Are there any good day (mostly dirt) rides near Vegas? I might be up there in the first part of May.

I was thinking something big bike friendly. I'd likely bring the Super Enduro unless there is some spectacular singletrack there. You know the kind of rides I'm used to.

Little bike single track is in Nelson Hills, south of Boulder City.

Big bike stuff is everywhere, just make sure you are out of the city areas that are closed.

So if I have three days and a Super Enduro, what are the "must-do" rides?

Go over Wheeler Pass, then come back through Rocky Gap and out Red Rock Canyon.

Go to the small town of Nelson, head south and explore the routes out to the river and back.

If you don't mind some freeway, go hit Toroweap.

"must do" rides? I don't know. Here are a few good ones that I like.

1. Vegas to Caliente for lunch via Corn Creek, Alamo rd, Silverstate trails, Elgin, Mormon Pass.

2. Vegas to Primm via Cottonwood, Goodsprings, Sandy Valley, Jean.

3. Valley of Fire. I have only done this one once and don't recall the route. It is a very nice scenic area. I am sure someone has tracks.

I have tracks for the first 2 and could email them to you if you are interested.

not dirt worthy

Aww shucks, I have my street bike in Vegas now. A little entertainment when I'm there. Left the dirt bike at home.

Totally Toroweap - great place. Use the search to find the Toroweap thread. Its a little bit complicated to find without GPS, but in all ways worth the ride.
From a European (German...) point of view:
The most remote place I have ever been. Great sky a night with lots of stars. Well maintained campground (toilets, benches, tables...) and no fee to pay.

I also remember riding a (prepared) "gravel" road from Henderson to Boulder City (where the Hoover Dam is) with Tim (tbarstow).

Scary shourtcut, I still hear the babyhead-size rocks knocking on my Africa Twin's skid-plate.
