Trail has a lot of hills I went clockwise it has some fast winding downhills so your breaks need to be in great order because of the steep drop offs on the sides of the trail. The scenery was beautiful in the beginning you could see Las Vegas and Mount Charleston in the middle you can see Lake Mead for quite a ways and towards the end you see Boulder City. All in all great ride can’t wait to do it again.
This was an AWESOME road bike ride! We parked at Railroad Pass and went clockwise. First 13 miles or so were mostly downhill with a few short steep grinders. Towards the end there were like 9 miles gradual, nonstop uphill. Thankfully no more steep grinders! Last few miles were blissfully flat/gentle downhill. We rode on a weekday in March and there were hardly any other people out there. Make sure you check your brakes before you head out because there are a LOT of steep downhill portions.
Love this trail. Earlier reviews state the trail turns to gravel at Paradise. Not so anymore. Trail continues on, over the highway and connects to the 35 mile river loop. Trail is wide--6' at the narrowest and wider than a car in other spots. It is concrete and asphalt. Most street crossings had little traffic. A couple were busy enough to use the flashing warning lights and area residents seemed aware of the bikers and courteously stopped at crosswalks for them. The trail is a slight incline heading southward but mostly flat. I used a little pedal assist on my ebike heading south, especially in wind, but turned it off and pedaled manually heading back north to Acacia Park. No homeless spotted. A few pedestrians and dog walkers but not many. Even on a Saturday only passed maybe 12 other cyclers.
This path is really conveniently located to a lot of homes along Sparks BLVD. It's short, but is a great connector to the Truckee River bike path. Also, so many ducks live along this path and they are just super fun to watch. It has a few places where the path dips down below the road level, and these can occasionally collect water. But if you're looking for a place to entertain your children with echoes, these underways are definitely the place to do it. The path is wide enough to accommodate traffic going both ways, which makes it great for walking or biking or bringing your dogs.
Nice trail follows wash from duck Creek to Nellis and Russell. Pretty clean A few homeless near Boulder highway. Mostly flat slight incline near Nellis. Nice way to get to and from the wetlands.
The signs are pretty straight forward until you get to two spots (located from South to North) SPOT #1 Navigating through Doc Romero park can be confusing since the signs are few and far between. When entering the park from the South, simply stay on the same sidewalk until it forks and then stay left. Follow the path past the restrooms and then do it again following the sidewalk until Cheyanne. SPOT #2 Once you approach Atwood Ave. (first street crossing North of Cheyanne), cross the street and make a right turn. Follow it until you reach Pioneer Way on the left hand side (2nd left once you turn onto Atwood). Follow Pioneer all the way to Gowan Rd.
I liked that there was free parking at the trail head. It’s right before the paid entry point for Lake Mead Rex area. Get there early to get a spot this is a very busy trail. It was flat and well maintained. It was fun walking through historic railroad tunnels. They are currently working on them now. There was plenty of benches provided to sit and rest, enjoy a snack or enjoy the view of Lake Mead.
Read the other reviews they are accurate. This is an older part of Vegas and there's no need to do this trail unless you are looking to sleep on the concrete.
This is a favorite loop of mine. I love to ride it in the late fall to early spring. I rode it in late November 2020. Temperatures were in the upper 50's and low 60's. A perfect temperature for this trail.
I rode clockwise from east Paradise Hills Drive. The trail is in great condition and offers many scenic views.
The ride back up via Henderson follows a storm-drainage system and is unique. I saw a Big Horn Sheep right in Henderson.
A great trail. Bring your own water! They need some restrooms on the north end, but other than that, a great ride.
Super fun bike and pedestrian trail. The path is much wider than most. Almost 1900 elevation if you ride the entire trail out and back. Was windy at times but an excellent challenge.
Location: Mesquite, NV
Parking: There are a number of nice parks along the trail with plenty of parking.
Trail Condition: Very good with wide pavement. There is one very narrow underpass at Mesquite Blvd on the east side of the loop. It is dark and there was some boxes of trash that could easily have been run into if not using caution. Consider using street crossing, not that much traffic.
Signage: Plenty of signs and trail easy to follow.
Comments: This is a nice loop through Mesquite passing through a number of nice parks. One of the parks had a spray fountain for the kids to play in. I made a loop of the trail, on the north end of the trail there is a short gap of no trail but can easily go along street to reconnect to trail. It is a very short distance and very little street traffic.
Location: Mesquite, NV
Parking: Parked on side street close to start of trail in Mesquite. Wide street with plenty of room to park.
Trail Condition: Most excellent! Very wide concrete and great condition.
Signage: Look down…trail name and distance stamped into concrete at different intervals.
Comments: TrailLink trail map is incorrect at the Bunkerville end of trail. Trail continues along the highway and not into town as indicated by map. The trail then ends at N 2nd W street. The streets of Bunkerville have recently been repaved and looks like a pretty quiet place, so easy enough to ride in town but that isn’t the trail. This is a nice trail, with a historical marker off the side of the trail indicating the area was part of the Old Spanish Trail.
