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.
The 215 re-alignment project includes extending the Western Beltway Trail from about a mile South of Lone Mountain Road to the new Centennial bridge, under construction, and ending at Centennial near the Providence Master Plan. I don't know of any plans to connect the new trail with the existing trail system.
I hit the trail on my heavily modified mountain bike (cruiser) at the furthest Northern Point at Deere Springs way; parking in the Kohl's parking lot. From here I road the entire length joining up with the the Lower LV Wash Trail near Alexander. I continued riding all the way to Las Vegas Boulevard turning around just past Broad Acres Flea Market.
The trail is in good condition with some gravel and weeds needing attention. Be prepared, while the trail does have a few bridges it does have a few road crossings as well. The crossing at Craig has lots of traffic. This truly is a wonderful trail and the citizens of North Las Vegas should be grateful that it was built. I only passed a handful of other folks out enjoying the cool clear December weather.
Don't hesitate, go ride this trail as soon as you can! Maybe make a trip out of it and stop at Broad Acres to look for some treasures.
Hope to see you out there!
My husband and I ran this trail for a four mile recovery run after the Rock n Roll Vegas Marathon. For cycling it's good in that you don't have to deal with intersections. For running it was amazingly dull. It's basically a paved electrical right of way next to a freeway. Ugly and boring.
Start at the bottom on Gibson Road passes through the gardens in the park.It's a gradual climb to the top at Nevada State College.Then it's a blast back down.
great trail with awesome views
This was a tough ride for me. I'm usually a C paced rider (13-15 mph average) but I'm not strong with long hills or comfortable with steep descents and on this ride you're either climbing or descending (no flat sections). It took me ~3.33 hours of actual riding time. MapMyRide gave me a 10.5 mph average. I started at the bike shop and rode clockwise. However, I saw more people riding counterclockwise. It is a loop, so the total elevation gain is the same either way, but clockwise has an 11 mile gradual climb and counterclockwise seemed to have many shorter but really steep climbs. No matter which way you go it's going to be a tough workout unless hills are easy for you.
I am a senior and decided to take my time the first time biking the River Mountains Loop Trail. I did it over several enjoyable days during the cooler, winter months. I started my adventure by biking to Lake Las Vegas from my house near the Stratosphere Casino using the Wetlands Bike Trail. I stayed overnight at the Hilton. I then used the Trail Connector from Lake Las Vegas to the River Mountains Trail and headed clockwise on the trail. Great views! Stopped at the visitor center and then stayed the second night near there at the Boulder Damn Hotel. Continued to finish the trail the third day, and stayed at the Sunset Station Hotel in Henderson after using the Lake Mead Trail. Rode home the fourth day. The Three Sisters was the toughest part. Walked some of that. Staying over some nights made it like a biking vacation. I recommend it. Hoping to do it again.
one can ride part of River Mountains Loop trail go to lake Las Vegas then hop on the connector to the wetlands. I have video on youtube of this route
I use this all the time, it gets one quickly to different parts of the city to stop or to continue on to nice city cycling. very enjoyable
just off of the RMLT a very nice down hill to the Veterans memorial cemetery.
