Rode 6am to 8:40am Today. Sensational trail ! A few gravel pools and gravel, so be careful first time.
Parked at visitors center, rode clockwise, all up hill first 7 miles
Then mostly downhill. I went thru half gallon of water in three 22oz
Bottles. Lots of tight turns. Highly recommend especially if you like the 13 mile loop at Red Rocks.
The signage is good from south going north, however once you get past lake meade there is a lack of signage and gets to be a guessing game as to which way you should go.
Happy lil trail, lots of good views. One of my favorites.
Lots of construction going on and many obstacles. Homeless seem to not be around anymore due to heavy police partols.
The trail shown on the map is only a part of the trail. One is able to make this a loop by following Buchanon Blvd north to Adams Blvd on a paved trail along the park; then taking the paved pathway west along the north side of the park and home subdivision area. There is a large dog park within the Veterans Memorial park plus ponds with geese and ducks. On the south end of the park at the intersection of Veterans Drive and Buchanon Blvd is the Veterans Memorial Cemetary. One is also able to access the downtown district of Boulder City by following Buchanon Blvd. north to the signaled intersection of Buchanon and Boulder City Parkway, turning right at the signal, and following Nevada Way to the downtown area (approx 1 mi. paved).
I take this trail a lot for my exercise after I get off work. Just get prepared to do some up hill climbs.
The trail runs around 1MM while it states 4+ Classic Vegas, starts but then you hit fences and incomplete shopping car parks. South route looks better
A nice, easy ride and we especially enjoyed the 5 tunnels along the way. It was a little crowded toward the trail head but thinned out as we went along.
I took this trail to go all the way to River Mountain Trail Loop and turning around back from Historical Train Tunnel in Boulder City.
The Historic Railroad Tunnel Trail is located near the Alan Bible Visitor Center, about .3 miles beyond the Lake Mead Visitor Center sign, to the right. We parked in the free trailhead lot below the visitors' center. From there we walked up the hill a short distance to get to the old railroad bed. We were there in April and even then it was hot and sunny. This would be a tough walk in mid-summer. Bring plenty of water. I would not take children on bikes because of the steep drop-offs with no guard rails. The views of Lake Mead are spectacular. The 5 tunnels are an instructive historical feature as are the displays along the way. The tunnels carved and blasted out of solid rock provide some welcome shade and it is slightly cooler inside them. There is a picnic shelter with a drinking fountain and toilets at the 2.3-mile point from the parking lot. There is also a gate at this point which is locked at sunset so make sure you are on the correct side of it if you are out at sunset. Listen carefully for the e-bikes coming up behind you. They are pretty quiet but moving pretty fast and they seldom use bells. The total mileage from the visitors center to near the dam is shown on the NPS maps we had to be a 7.5 mi round trip. But you can walk less than that by starting at the visitor center parking lot walking to the picnic area and turning around. All of the tunnels are in that section.

I rode my bike here 3 times already because it’s my favorite bike trail in Vegas. I would recommend you take it clockwise. This trail has up hill climb and down hills. Bring plenty of water.
I took this trail 3 times now. I took my E bike starting at Saddle Island parking lot to River Mountain Trail Loop total miles 37 miles. Bring plenty of water and food.
