Amargosa Trail Description

The Amargosa Trail stretches across Henderson, a large suburb just south of Las Vegas. Trail-goers should note that there are several street crossings along the route and little shade. The trail, which includes both paved and unpaved segments, features educational kiosks and interpretive signage on the desert tortoise and other native wildlife and plants.

There are several points to begin your journey and a handful of trailhead parks offer restrooms and parking. The westernmost endpoint starts at a connection with the St. Rose Parkway Trail across from the Siena Campus of Dignity Health's St. Rose Dominican Hospitals. You'll briefly head north—meeting the Cactus Wren Trail at S. Eastern Avenue—before following Ione Road east through residential areas to Cactus Wren Park. The park offers many recreational amenities, including ball fields, basketball and volleyball courts, picnic tables and a playground.

From the park, a new bridge allows trail users to safely cross St. Rose Parkway. Travel across the road to reach the Siena Heights Trailhead, which offers parking, restrooms and tennis courts. The trail continues east through Coronado Center Drive, Cozy Hill Circle and Carnegie Street, ultimately reaching S. Green Valley Parkway. Cross the parkway and you'll enter the sprawling Henderson Multigenerational Center, one of the largest recreational facilities in Nevada, which includes an art gallery, three pools, a fitness center and dance room.

The trail cuts through the grounds of the facility before crossing Paseo Verde Parkway. The next major highlight you'll come to is Paseo Verde Park, offering 9 acres to play in with ball fields, horseshoe pits, and basketball, volleyball and tennis courts.

After following Paseo Verde Parkway east for a short time, the trail turns south at S. Valle Verde Drive, then quickly leaves the road to follow an irrigation channel. Near Verde Triandos Drive, the trail splits from the channel, running adjacent to homes just north of Foothills Plaza. You can access several shops and restaurants along S. Stephanie Street from this stretch, as well as the I-215 East Beltway Trail.

At Chapata Street, the trail turns north to reach Reunion Trails Park, which offers a dog park, playground, splash pad, basketball courts, picnic shelters and restrooms over its 12 acres. Crossing Drawback Street farther east, the path runs parallel to Casady Hollow Avenue to its end at the former grounds of Black Mountain Christian School, which relocated elsewhere in Henderson.

There is currently a short gap around the site, but the trail resumes less than a block to the east at Gibson Road. From there, the route heads southeast, approaching the base of the surrounding McCullough Range. The more adventurous can take the unpaved mountain biking and hiking component of the Amargosa Trail for roughly 2.5 miles south into the foothills. Those who can make the steep climb will be rewarded with outstanding views of the city and the final paved stretch of trail through a residential development in the Paradise Hills neighborhood.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found at multiple points along the trail, including Cactus Wren Park (2900 Ivanpah Drive), the Henderson Multigenerational Center (250 S. Green Valley Parkway), Paseo Verde Park (1851 Paseo Verde Parkway) and Reunion Trails Park (44 Chapata Drive).

great trail

s

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

Nice Urban Trail

s

This Urban Trail now has a bridge over St Rose Parkway making it continues from South Eastern Ave to the east crossing of Paseo Verde Parkway, then follows the Prkwy to S Valle Verde Dr. Work in progress on other parts of the Trail. Some street crossing do not have curb cuts and you need to use sidewalk to a pedestrian crosswalks or driveways with no marked crossings. Divided streets have multi 90 degrees turns to cross. Some street crossings are almost blind to drivers, due to shrubs. Noel Keller 17 Oct 2012
