Historic Railroad Trail

historic railroad trail & part of River mountain loop

November, 2023 by mosleypad

Started in Bolder City picked up the River Mountain loop trail that runs into the historic railroad pass trail. You can take almost to Hoover dam. Then we locked up our bikes and hiked a little bit and ended up right on Hoover dam. Great trip about 13 miles round-trip. Then we got back and had lunch in Boulder city.

River Mountains Loop Trail

Spectacular trail and beautiful scenery!

October, 2023 by jimshaw823

First time on this trail. Rode it counterclockwise and ran into fairly heavy wind. A lot of uphill and downhill and switchbacks during the whole loop. Lake Mead, Boulder City, natl rec area visitors center and distant views of the LV strip are some of the highlights. Bring water and food and be prepared to get a work out! Really enjoyed it and would def do it again!

Union Pacific Railroad Trail

Really nice trail…

September, 2023 by jimshaw823

I’m visiting Henderson while my daughter is working so I went for a ride on the UPRR tail trail. Once I found the trail head near green valley park away I went. It is a very clean and well maintained trail. I did get turned around a couple of times, due to my own error I’m sure, but was able to get back on the trail. I really enjoyed the whole ride which included crossing several crosswalks along the way. Hats off to the people of Henderson, they seem to be very bike friendly/aware.


Tahoe East Shore Trail

Breathtaking trail

August, 2023 by gatorsbabe2208

Stunning views, lake breeze and access along the way. Perfect way to spend a day.

Erica Greif Memorial Bikeway

My Sunday Morning Favorite

July, 2023 by reiterjw

I really enjoy getting on this trail early on a Sunday Morning. I am usually on the trail by 8am.

I start at the south end and ride to E Greg Street.

I park at the Double Diamond Park. It is just a short ride along S Meadows Parkway to the beginning of the trail.

I included two screen shots of the Garmin map and a picture of the entrance to the Double Diamond Park.

Union Pacific Railroad Trail


June, 2023 by vqjwgkbbgf

Rode the entire trail and back again on my e-bike and it was awesome. It has everything, cool bridges, tunnels, parks and parks and parks, even one with small lakes. I’ve live in Vegas for 30+ years and discovered some new places to go back to check out. It’s awesome! Smooth easy ride.

Union Pacific Railroad Trail

Good trail

May, 2023 by swvn2cp6ym

I ride this trail frequently from Fiesta Henderson Blvd going to railroad pass. Then either turn left to Lake Las Vegas or right and thru Boulder down to the edge of lake mead. Both ways are nice.

Amargosa Trail

Amargosa Trail Dissappointment

March, 2023 by fskemery

Don't waste your time riding this trail. Its a paved path next to a 6 lane highway with frequent 6 lane arterial intersections that are tricky to cross because of the high traffic volume going into the never ending commercial and retail commerce areas you are riding past. At least the weather was nice.

River Mountains Loop Trail

not a rail trail.

March, 2023 by dalehutcheson1

Not sure how this trail got listed by Trail Link as a rail/trail but it definitely is not. We started at Railroad Pass trail head and rode the trail clockwise. Lots of long uphills but plenty of downhills as well. Where it gets very difficult is when you get out about 24 1/2 miles (at this point there is no turning back) and you face a fairly steep 5 mile climb with minimal downhill relief. The last 3 1/2 miles are downhill which is nice but that 5 mile climb is a killer. Beautiful trail but not easy by any stretch.

Pittman Wash Trail

Older Trail but Nice

March, 2023 by acewickwire

Trail surface is old and cracked. Also is a narrower trail. The informational signs at the numerous plazas along the trail are faded out. However, is nice to follow a trail that isn't alongside a busy roadway. A number of other users were out on a Sunday afternoon in the drizzle. The wash isn't all that scenic but there is vegetation in it. A number of side trails go down into the wash for dog walking etc. There are a couple busy streets that need to be crossed and they have traffic signals. Overall would do this one again.

I-215 West Beltway Trail

Follows Beltway

March, 2023 by acewickwire

Trail is good quality, smooth and wide but the portion we followed parallels the beltway. Lots of traffic on beltway. Some signaled road crossings and others with an underpass. We started on the north end (Hualapai Way) and traveled south for nearly 7 miles. This trail does have hills. The traillink map and listing could be updated. The trail travels east from where we started. Uncertain how much further but is more trail.

River Mountains Loop Trail

3/14/2023 Interesting Trail by bicycle

March, 2023 by paulz

Started at the Alan Bible Visitor Ctr and went clockwise. The trail immediately goes up for about 1100 feet in about 6 miles. This was a killer of a climb for me. Most of the difficulty was in this section. The last 2 miles was also challenging. I am not sure why this falls into the "rail trail category". Too much verticals and S turns and switch backs for that category. The first 13 ish miles was underwheming as far as scenery. you pass housing, power lines, businesses. The rest of the route is more scenic and less difficult and more fun. If I were to ride it again, I would consider going counter clockwise as an out and back from the visitor center. Going counterclockwise all the way would have a longer less steep uphill with steep downhill in the end. Pick your preference. I did not see any wildlife. I encountered some raindrops, temps around 70 mostly cloudy. Rained hard after the ride. No shade. Bring enough water. No food on the trail itself. A lot of expansion cracks, otherwise good mostly asphalt surface. Road bike should be fine. I rode a hybrid.
