The Logandale Trails System is located in Logandale,NV, about 62 miles from Las Vegas, or 73 miles from St. George, UT. This is located in Moapa Valley, where you can find plenty of food and supplies to keep you going for a day, or a weekend trip. The Logandale Trails is governed by the Bureau of Land Management, with Partners in Conservation (PIC) designated as the Official Steward of the Trail System beginning in 2014.
The Logandale Trails is a multi use trail system that is visited and enjoyed by both locals and out of town OHV Enthusiasts. A 2012 estimate from the BLM put the Logandale Trails visitor count at 168,248, the most recent figure available. Many improvements have been made to the trails since the 1998 ground breaking ceremony.
The articles below provide most of the history of the Logandale Trails, as well as articles and stories published about the Trails.
THE TRAIL: The Logandale Trail System contains over 200 miles of marked trails, suitable for OHV, Equestrian, Hiking, and Biking. The Logandale Trail System gives you the opportunity to experience the rugged southwest desert in all its glory. It’s easy to get to, located approximately 1 hour from Las Vegas, NV or St. George, UT.
Camping: Primitive Camping is available at designated campsites where there are fire rings. No hookups or dump stations for RVs, and please do NOT camp in undesignated areas.There are no set quiet or lights out times, but it’s always nice to be courteous and use common sense so you don’t offend your neighbors.
Picnicking: There are some picnic tables along the trail, as well as two shade structures with 8 tables near the main entrance from Logandale. A restroom building is located at the trailhead.
Horseback Riding: Horseback Riding is great in the Trail System, the trails on the western portion are specificially for horses. There is a hitching post at the southern restroom area.
Mountain Biking: The best trails for biking are in the northern part of the site, north of the main parking area from Logandale.
Rock Climbing: You don’t need any permits to climb, and the best place is the red sandstone formations located in the spine.
Off-Highway Vehicles: ATVs and OHVS are the vehicle of choice for most visitors to the Logandale Trail System. STAY ON EXISTING TRAILS! It’s hard for many people to understand the fragile nature of the desert, since it looks so rugged and indestructible, but the reality is that it doesn’t take much to damage the desert beyond repair when you venture off trail. Since there are already so many well marked trails in this system, there is really no reason to go off the trails.
Now that Stewardship of the Trails System has been assigned to PIC, they are working hard to get updated maps and information out there for the public. In the meantime, we have put together a few items including maps and brochures in a PDF Document that you can download here. It is a large file, so give it some time to download please.

Nevada’s program to register and title off-highway vehicles went into effect July 1, 2012. Nearly all off-highway vehicles greater than 70cc, and 1976 or newer, must be registered and display a registration decal to operate legally in Nevada. The cost for an annual registration is $21. Applications are accepted and decals are issued by mail only. Additionally, OHV dealers must be specifically licensed to sell off-highway vehicles.
