I-215 West Beltway Trail

Fantastic Trail!

April, 2019 by rwood48

My experience is bicycling, but I see others walking and jogging as well. This is an awesome trail to get some miles in with minimal traffic concerns. There are a few intersections to cross, but most have a bridge or tunnel. This is an exceptional resource for bicyclists and others in Las Vegas Nevada. I am super pleased to have this available to us!

Nice easy walk. Along state highway but enjoyable.

Flamingo Arroyo Trail

A Means to an End

April, 2019 by dave.hemingway

I can't argue with any of the previous reviews. It's not a trail you would set out to ride and thoroughly enjoy, but it has it's positives. Before I reached the trail I'd spent the best part of 20 minutes riding down Flamingo and stopping for ages at every single set of lights. I was glad to get on the trail and enjoy some continuous riding.

There were small areas with glass and debris which thankfully caused no issues. There are a few areas of homeless camps which for which I adopted a turn of speed, just in case. I encountered no problems and most were courteous and polite, saying hello as I passed and ensuring their friends weren't blocking my passage. I was a little concerned at first but un-necessarily so. I'd decided that I'd take a different route on the way back but after the first two sets of traffic lights set me back the best part of 10 minutes, I chose to retrace back to town on the trail.

Not the most picturesque trail you could follow and could certainly do with running a sweeper over it, but all in all gets you from The Strip (almost) to Sunrise and keeps you away from the main roads.

River Mountains Loop Trail

April Fools Challenge

April, 2019 by dave.hemingway

I set myself the challenge of renting a road bike and riding out from The Strip down Flamingo Arroyo, Wetlands and Connector trails then taking the River Mountains Loop clockwise before retracing back to Vegas, Baby.

Flamingo Arroyo is a means to an end. It gets you out of the city to Sunrise avoiding the main trafficked roads and onto Wetlands, which is a nice trail. There's a couple of miles slog up to The Loop from here then you need to decide clockwise or anti clockwise.

I'm 16 stones so not a climber and I managed alright. There's nothing particularly steep but the drag from Lake Mead to the top of the hill at Boulder City is a long, hard slog. I plodded gently up it in marginally under 55 minutes excluding a stop to give directions to a couple that couldn't read the sign they were standing next to. Why they'd assume a bloke from 5,000 miles away would have any local knowledge is open to question.

The early April sunshine had the temperature hitting 30 degrees C (double it and add 32 I think for old school) in parts; strangely the hottest bit was during the climb to boulder city which was dashed inconvenient. I ran out of drink atop the climb and managed to restock at the Equestrian Drive Car Park where the water fountain dispenses the nicest water on earth (and I live near Buxton!) A good tip is to memorise where the water dispensaries are before you set off. I didn't struggle the Three Sisters. Kept a bit of pace up and sprinted up them. Overall good trail. Good tarmac most of the way round with a few contraction cracks in places. Not many opportunities for shade so I'd imagine it would be good to heed the advice of avoidance in the summer months. Completely enjoyable and easily accomplished by an average, middle aged cyclist.

Reno/Sparks Section

Very nicely paved well maintained with benches and trash cans along Veterans PKY and Sparks Drive.

Historic Railroad Trail

A Favorite, But Under Repair

March, 2019 by chawks64

This is a really great trail, one of my favorites, but be aware of two things:

1. The trail is currently closed (as of March 5, 2019) at Tunnel 3 for repairs, so the trail is shortened.

2. The trail can be closed during the hottest months, basically so tourists unaccustomed to the heat don't harm themselves.

River Mountains Loop Trail

Up and Down

January, 2019 by acewickwire

Happy New Year…completed this nearly 38 mile (some signage claims 31 miles) loop on 4 Jan 2019. Parked at Equestrian Dog Park in Henderson. Good park to start from, there is a decent restroom with water at the location. (At the end of Equestrian Dr there is also a parking area with pit toilet and bike repair station.) Took connector trail up to the River Mountains Loop trail about 0.5 mile away. Traveled clockwise. Was cool temps (50’s) and calm. Still saw a number of other folks on the trail, mostly bikers but some walkers. Signage on some portions of the trail was lacking at intersections. Following the main trail was easy enough but if wanting to take a side trip requires a study of the map. Once on the Lake Mead side of the loop watched a coyote trot down the trail in front of us for a short distance, finally leaving the trail when we got a little closer. Then on the big climb up to Boulder City there was a group of Desert Bighorn Sheep rams right on the edge of the trail enjoying the grassy shoulder. This is not a Rails-to-Trails type trail, plenty of hills to climb and glide down. Can’t imagine attempting this in the middle of the summer, no shade available anywhere. Enjoyed the ride but was ready to be done once we saw the end in sight.

Flamingo Arroyo Trail

Too many homeless

December, 2018 by pirate.nomes

Sort of confusing finding the trail head. Parked on the other side of McCleod not down by Twain. Thankfully we did that as the underpass bridge is basically a homeless camp. Unfortunately there were several homeless camps along the way. Lots of trash as well

Flamingo Arroyo Trail

Not worth the time

November, 2018 by mjestraw1

Wish I had read these reviews before we decided to ride this trail. It is a sad example of urban trail that has been taken over by homeless. We went on a Saturday before noon and thought there would be lots of people riding and walking the trail and didn't come across anyone except homeless. The smell and amount of garbage left was terrible. It was called Neon to Nature and we definitely didn't see any nature. Too bad because it was evident that there was millions of dollars spent on this project. My husband and I felt unsafe on this trail! Very sad!

DO NOT RIDE FROM WADSWORTH!

September, 2018 by erynlizabeth

We started at the elementary school. After having to climb through 2 gates, my bike(a trail hybrid) could not handle all the sand. 2 miles in, we decided to turn around because I was struggling. On the way back, all 4 of our bike tires went flat.

It was over grown, very awkward gates blocking the labled pathway. Lots of goat heads. So many. And the best part was we paid to do this.

River Mountains Loop Trail

Not For Beginners

September, 2018 by insight2099

Here’s my take on the trail:
Required abilities- Hot weather endurance, be able to ride at least 40 miles without too much trouble, able to handle long climbs.

Required gear: Depending the time of year, bring at least 2 liters of water. There are a few watering holes (mile 3, 12 I think, 16 ish, and from 22 on you’re near civilization), snacks and electrolytes.

When to ride: DO NOT RIDE FROM JUNE TO SEPTEMBER! There is literally a sign at the visitor area that says that. The heat can kill you and has killed others. I rode in October and still succumbed to the heat. If you do ride in the fall or spring, ride early (6AM is nice).

Others have commented that this is all climbs and descents. THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. There are no flat areas. Going clockwise, mile 19 to mile 34 is one long continuous (and at times arduous) climb. Miles 1 to 19 are a bunch of ups and downs.

Mile 4 to 14 has the “Three Sisters.” Three very intense but short climbs followed by really fun and winding descents. I clocked at 37 mph on a 37 lbs hybrid and I wasn’t even trying.

If you’re trying it for the first time, go clockwise. It’s more fun, and if you poop out after mile 20, you are near civilization. Clockwise takes you around to Lake Las Vegas and Lake Meade via very pretty and scenic route. The “Three Sisters” aren’t as bad, the down hill descents stretch out nicely.

Counterclockwise starts with a brutal uphill followed by a very long descent. “The Wash” portion of the descent (mile 28 to mile 31 ish) is tough, hot, and slippery. If you’re on a road bike, please be careful.

From mile 19 to mile 1 it is a mostly gentle climb with some severe bumps. The Sisters are called the “Three Not-So-Nice words” going this direction. Please be prepared, as they are in the last portion of your ride.

Is it worth doing? Yes! If you plan it right, it’s a great experience. If you can do it with friends, even better. Please take the appropriate steps, come at the right time, and make sure you are good enough in a bike to enjoy the ride. Kick it’s butt!
