The Flaming Arroyo Trail curves across the heart of suburban Clark County, passing through the communities of Paradise, Winchester and Sunrise Manor. The trail follows Flamingo Wash for nearly its entire route, which might have been a more appropriate name for the trail: an arroyo is generally a dry creek fed by rainwater, while this wash usually sees a steady flow of water from irrigation runoff.
The trail provides safe crossings of busy roads via bridges or underpasses at all but one intersection (Mojave Road). However, there is one challenging on-road stretch between Nellis Boulevard and Sloan Lane, where the recently reconstructed Desert Rose Golf Course blocks the trail's logical direct route. Instead, trail users must continue north on busy Nellis Boulevard, east on Sahara Avenue and south on the sidepath along Sloan Lane to rejoin the trail's off-road alignment.
This easternmost stretch of trail follows the Las Vegas Wash from where it meets Flamingo Wash near Sloan Lane to the Sunrise Trailhead in the arid eastern reaches of the Las Vegas area. Here, trail users can continue on the paved Wetlands Park Loop Trail to reach Clark County Wetlands Park and ultimately the River Mountains Loop Trail, which is conveniently linked via the Wetlands Trail Connector.
Parking for the Flamingo Arroyo Trail is available at the Pecos-McLeod Trailhead (Pecos-McLeod Interconnect at Emerson Avenue) and Sunrise Trailhead (Clark County Wetlands Park at S. Hollywood Boulevard).
