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 rode this path with a friend recently (she’s experienced, I’m a beginner) and we both had a good time! Nicely paved, a few slight hills, and decent length.
I just got a bike and rode this path with my cycling-experienced friend. We both had a good time, explored both directions when the path forked closer to Sparks, and appreciated how well the path was maintained. Fairly flat—a little more hilly on the way back (toward S. Reno), but great overall!
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.
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.
