Notice: The recently repaired trail section between Nevada State Dr and Dawson Ave may be in disrepair again due to heavy rain.
The Union Pacific Railroad Trail runs along an active track, cutting through Henderson and connecting to residential neighborhoods and commercial shopping districts. The spur line sees infrequent traffic from companies receiving freight deliveries, and like the trail, is maintained by the City of Henderson. A fence separates trail users from the rail line throughout its length.
At the trail's north end, Green Valley Park has a playground, a baseball field, a basketball court, picnic tables, restrooms, and a large grassy field. Dogs are welcome and the frequent trees provide plenty of shade.
Midway along the trail, the popular Acacia Park offers ball fields, basketball courts and picnic shelters, as well as a playground, splash pad and dog park. The adjacent Acacia Demonstration Gardens provide examples of landscaping appropriate to Henderson's dry desert climate. A direct connection to the I-215 East Beltway Trail from Acacia Park's northwest edge allows trail users to continue along the Bruce Woodbury (Las Vegas) Beltway to points west of Henderson.
The construction of Interstate 11 also prompted the addition of separate rail and trail bridges over I-11 and parallel US 95 at the Union Pacific Railroad Trail's southeast end near Railroad Pass. While a relatively short extension of less than a mile, the bridge allows trail users to continue their journey on the existing River Mountains Loop Trail that provides access to Boulder City, Lake Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam.
At the northern endpoint, restrooms are available at Green Valley Park and street parking is fairly easy by the entrance to the trail at N Pecos Rd & Warm Springs Rd.
Parking and restrooms are available at Acacia Park (50 Casa Del Fuego Street). Additional parking can be found in dedicated lots where the trail crosses Fiesta Henderson Boulevard, Greenway Road, Arrowhead Trail and Nevada State Drive. Visit the TrailLink map for all options and detailed directions.
