I-215 West Beltway Trail Description

The I-215 West Beltway Trail follows the Las Vegas Beltway (officially named the Bruce Woodbury Beltway) along the city's western border, offering views of the mountains that flank the city. While the adjacent highway is currently signed as Clark County 215, the route is in the process of being upgraded to interstate standards—hence the trail's name.

The urban trail provides a convenient north-south course for commuters, as well as a recreational escape about two miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. For further adventuring, the center of the trail is not far from the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, accessible from Charleston Boulevard. In the north, the trail ends at W. Alexander Road, which conveniently dead-ends at Majestic Park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the southern end of the trail at the shopping complex off W. Tropicana Avenue. Trail-goers should use caution when crossing the busy road.

I-215 West Beltway Trail Reviews

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!

The 215 re-alignment project includes extending the Western Beltway Trail from about a mile South of Lone Mountain Road to the new Centennial bridge, under construction, and ending at Centennial near the Providence Master Plan. I don't know of any plans to connect the new trail with the existing trail system.

My husband and I ran this trail for a four mile recovery run after the Rock n Roll Vegas Marathon. For cycling it's good in that you don't have to deal with intersections. For running it was amazingly dull. It's basically a paved electrical right of way next to a freeway. Ugly and boring.

this is a very long trail, I go about half way and turn back home which is great. I would suggest early in the am during summer.

The trail is open the whole length.

Closed at 2.5 mile mark heading north

The map here is not close to updated. The trail now extends all the way Cheyenne Ave. While I have not measured the actual miles I would say it is now about 10-11 miles full length.

The trail is a very nice ride with only a few places that you have to cross roads and watch for traffic (Flamingo Rd., Sahara Ave, Fort Apache @ Peace Way)

The section between Cheyenne Ave and Summerlin Pkwy riding south bound is quite challenging due to the very steep grade Cheyenne to Lake Mead. Outside of this section the trail is a nice ride. Overall up hill northbound and downhill southbound.

As far as difficulty, overall, it is quite accessible for the novice rider and you can tailor your ride and turn around at any point. I would expect the avid rider would find it on the easier side.

That is the oficial name for this trail.

It offcially goes futher south from Tropicanna but then it is all on sidewalks, and it is now extended up to Charleston Av.
It goes underneth Hualipai & Desert Inn Rd and now a new Bridge takes you over Towne Center Dr.

2 good places to park are #1 the Road Runner Saloon @ Flamingo & the 215. Way in the back next to the trail and the other one is on Desert Inn Rd @ the 215, next to the school playfield.

Very nice trail, would be even nicer if they had bridges over FtApache Rd, Flamingo, & Sahara Av.

This is a very nice paved trail with an easy grade. Wide enough for walkers, runners, and bikers to pass easily. We started at Flamingo and intended to go all the way to Charleston, however we could not find the trail when it crossed Summerlin Center. TrailLink states the trail is 5 miles from Tropicana to Charleston but maps on the trail say it is 6.3 miles.
