Flamingo Arroyo Trail Description

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.

Other trail connections along the Flaming Arroyo Trail's route include the I-515 Trail and Lower Las Vegas Wash Trail, which continues north nearly 15 miles into North Las Vegas.

Parking and Trail Access

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).

Flamingo Arroyo Trail Reviews

I ride the Flamingo Arroyo trail several times a week. It has a vandalism problem. I routinely clean up broken glass from it. The path is open through Sunrise Trailhead which is closed to vehicular traffic due to extreme vandalism of the facilities. You can take the path to the Wetlands Center for bathroom facilities or take a hard left just past the trailhead to continue down to Terrazo Park, the Pabco trail, and the RMLT connector.

Original thought we would start at the Sunrise trailhead but the park was blocked off with cement barriers and did not look like it was in use anymore. This was on the edge of town and at the end of the pavement. Wasn’t real comfortable with the security of the area, so moved on to the next trail head on Sloan Lane. This really wasn’t a trailhead you would expect in the city, gravel lot with no signage indicating parking area. Had to drive over the sidewalk and up a ramp, did have some cement and gravel to navigate over the original curb. We planned to travel West and turns out you have to go back to the main street of Sahara and follow it a fair distance before connecting to the actual trail. Rather than ride on this busy main thoroughfare, we rode on the very narrow sidewalk, dodging shopping carts filled with chunks of cement and a lot of trash. The trail was okay but again had to dodge a fair amount of trash and travel through some dicey looking areas (trash filled underpass, etc.). Of all the Vegas trails we have ridden this would rate at the very bottom and would only ride again if nothing else was available.
