Backroads Around Las Vegas

Backroads Around Las Vegas provides information on off-highway driving adventures. Driving in the desert is fun, but it carries special risks. Always carry water, take the 10 Essentials, tell someone where you are going, tread lightly on this fragile land, and please respect the wilderness and the other people out there. Road conditions change with the weather, so always use your own good judgement.
