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, 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.
Parking and restrooms for the Union Pacific Railroad Trail 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.
