These are in Las Vegas around the whole valley. Most trails I ran back in highschool, and it was open desert and it was fun. Today I did Red Rock and we had to manuver around so many obstacles that were placed to keep people out. Residential homes are being built, and those owners are complaining about people driving through the desert at all hours of the day.
Well, today while driving through some of my favorite trails in Sheep Range we had to be very careful as to not run over empty beer bottles everywhere. Torched cars were dumped out in the desert, along with garbage people dont want to take to the dump.
I'm heading out to Henderson in a few hours for some night wheeling, and I'm bringing my camera this time. It's ridiculous to see what people are doing to the trails here. Every week there is another torched vehicle, more garbage everywhere and more trails being shut down. I have written letters to the mayor (who is an alcoholic by the way) with no response back. My guess is that they will clean up when it comes time to build in that area.

Wow, sorry to see that people are so sloppy and disrespectful.
This will cause a grteat deal of grief for all of us who do " Tread lightly "
because the areas will get closed.

A primary reason for off-road action groups and the fact that we should help support them financially. They are working in the political action area for " Us "!

Sorry for the soapbox speech,,,,
Also, per your video,,,you'll be needing sliders,,,,ehhh ?

the back side of redrock isnt bad. i did it stock, its pretty easy.
