Wetlands Trail Connector Description

The Wetlands Trail Connector runs from a junction with the Lake Mead Parkway Trail and River Mountains Loop Trail along Lake Mead Parkway to Terrazza Park in northeast Henderson. Just across Lake Las Vegas Parkway from the park, the Lake Las Vegas Resort complex features several luxurious hotels and casinos.

Just west of Terrazza Park, trail users can cross a bridge over Las Vegas Wash to reach Clark County Wetlands Park and its scenic—and rather long—loop trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Wetlands Trail Connector is available at Terrazza Park in Henderson (1992 Galleria Drive). You can also park (and find restrooms and drinking water) at Mountain Lake Park (1020 Golda Way, Henderson) and then take the trail from there to the Wetlands Trail Connector. 

Wetlands Trail Connector Reviews

Short but Liked It

February 2020

Location: Henderson, NV
Trail Condition: Nicely finished asphalt trail surface. Wide trail. Trail has two underpasses beneath busy highways. Both nicely done and plenty wide enough. Steep hill climb from wetlands area to River Mountains Loop Trail.
Comments: We connected to this trail from the Lake Mead Parkway Trail/River Mountains Loop Trail. The trail goes pretty steady downhill most of the way to Terrazza Park. The park has nice restrooms and a large roadrunner statue. Would be a good place to park and start the other trails in the Las Vegas Wash area. Only a couple folks seen on the Wetlands Trail Connector. However, a pretty good number of walkers, mostly, seen at the park and on the other trails in the Las Vegas Wash area. (In future will plan to return to this area and try other trails.) On return to River Mountains Loop Trail it is a pretty steep climb from Terrazza Park. Our loop ride this day also included, Lake Mead Parkway, River Mountains Loop Trail, and Burkholder Trail. See reviews for these trails mentioned.

Short Trail but it connects to three other trails

January 2020

This trail connects Mountain Lake Park to Terrazza Park. It is all uphill from Terrazza to Mountain Lake. At Mountain Lake Park connect to River Mountains Loop Trail and Lake Meade Parkway Trail. At Terrazza Park connect to Wetlands Park Loop Trail and on to Flamingo Arroyo Trail. All trails are paved and in good condition.
