OK. You saw Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - 'nuff said. This is a bucket list item - make sure you go to the edge and look at the actual tombs - long buried by sand - excavated (likely with the Indiana Jones money)...More

Quite spectacular! Cross it off my bucket list! I thought the canyon leading down to the Treasury was just as beautiful.

As I have not heard of the Indiana Jones Trail Ride, I am sorry I cannot answer that question either. If it is just round the site then probably not strong skills as it is an easy site but further afield, not sure level.
