Burkholder Trail Reviews

Good Connector Trail

Location: Henderson, NV
Trail Condition: Outside of central Henderson trail is wide and in good condition. Once entering the “city” encounter more traffic and intersection crossings (minor and major). Mostly the trail is away from the street but still must be aware of traffic and intersections. Through the city it is wide and well maintained.
Comments: Started this trail from the River Mountains Loop Trail. It is good downhill coast when starting here and riding into Henderson. The first mile or so is outside of the city and remainder is a city ride. Towards the end of the trail, approaching Lake Mead Parkway, a section of trail is a “Story Book” walk with pages of a children’s book displayed. Can walk along and read a story. Pretty neat. Our loop ride this day also included, Lake Mead Parkway, Wetlands Trail Connector, and River Mountains Loop Trail. See reviews for these trails mentioned.

Burkholder Trail - Tale of two trails

The west most portion of trail from Lake Mead Parkway to Racetrack Rd. is fully improved and landscaped with benches and protected street crossings,. This is due to full street development and public r.o.w used.
Once you cross to east side of Racetrack the trail r.o.w. is on federal lands where development is minimal and thus the trail is 12-ft of pavement and directional signage. Burkholder Trail Intersects with the River Mountains Loop Trail at the NEC of the River Mountains Water Treatment Plant.
