Connection to River Mountain Loops Trail on the south end is now complete, bridge over Interstate 11 is scenic.
We rode this on our tandem road bike. Easy ride with great views. Hard pack surface with thin layer of fine grit. Easily rideable with a road bike if you don’t do the hill at the end. We say two desert big horn sheep. Also met some friendly people along the way.
Love this trail. Ride this one every weekend
Stranded in Las Vegas due to blizzard in Boston, so I decided to go for a long run while I was here. I ran from circus circus down to where the trail crosses Desert Inn Rd and hopped on it. My preliminary version of bicycles and runners and families were quickly diminished and the 3 mile stretch that I ran was full of garbage and trash and vandalism and homeless people. On the return leg I opted to run on 6 miles of concrete sidewalk along a busy road, if that tells you anything. This trail has a lot of potential, but it needs a lot of TLC.
Ok ride, nice to be off the street most of the time, but there are crossings. LV needs more paved trails that are at least 10 miles one way.
It’s a nice small lengthier ride. They view is also stunning
Very well maintained. Easy terrain. POI markers along the way and jus beautiful landscape!!!! Perfect for Bikes or walking.
This is an expert level inline skate for those of you wishing to take the challenge. The pavement is great, but the heat and major steep grades will kick your butt hard. It is like hiking on skates in one direction, and skiing in the other. There is not much water available - found some at the 36.012998, -114.922980 trailhead.
My route: from the AMS water treatment plant, going north, it will basically be uphill for 15 miles. If you get to the trailhead near River Mountain water treatment and go back, it will be dangerous downhill for 15 miles.
Some of the hills are 30+ mph hills with jog turns at the bottom. Start braking immediately when you see these hills. Others are more fun, so it really feels like you climbed a mountain and now get to go down as a reward. There are some surprise dirt washes to jump over.
Note there is currently a detour in place near the AMS water treatment plant next to Lake Mead. Good luck!
it's great in some spots others are supper hot you are just baking out in the sun there is no shade or trees for most of it and it is short come on LV put some money down for the bikers.
Great trail all the way through
I live by this trail and walk/hike around the portion that runs by my house. I sometimes see very ill-prepared cyclists in poor condition for this long, hot trail. I saw a guy today who was in serious danger wearing all black, sunburned and no sun hat or any protection and should not have been out there. Do not undertake this loop if you are out of shape or not equipped to be baked under in the blinding desert sun all day long. This is NOT KID OR PET FRIENDY AT ALL and has zero shade anywhere along the way. Serious fit and prepared cyclists with water only. This trail is NOT FOR HIKING or families.
I found the trail to be excellent. Must stay alert due to the areas of heavier pedestrian traffic ... bikes, walking dogs, etc ... but it was never overwhelming. Relatively wide, divided paved path helps. I also enjoyed running in the washway where there is a stone-lined path. Much less traffic, and it amounted to 1-2 miles of a solid trail run. I'd recommend this trail.
