Spanning about two miles through residential neighborhoods in northern Sparks, the Wingfield Utility Corridor Trail offers a straight and mostly flat pathway through a corridor occupied by overhead power lines, as well as surprisingly lovely shrubs and foliage.
The southern end of the trail passes between neighborhoods and a local golf course, with the concrete trail branching off from the wide sidewalk along Vista Boulevard. A short spur trail will take you into Bitterbrush Park to the east, a small neighborhood park with a playground and some open space for recreation. Crossing over Campello Drive, the concrete trail continues on the east side of the corridor, while an asphalt pathway mirrors it on the western side. Another spur trail leads west to a local elementary school, giving students and parents a convenient means of getting to and from school; further north, another spur branches off to lead into neighborhoods to the west and Del Cobre Park.
The main trail paths continue north below the power lines until they come to an end at La Posada Drive, where the development begins thinning out and trail users are provided some nice views of the surrounding hills. The asphalt path continues west as a sidewalk along the south side of the road, which trail users can use to connect to the Wingfield Springs Trail. If you don't mind the presence of the power lines along the trail, the Wingfield Utility Corridor Trail offers a surprisingly scenic neighborhood trail, with just one road crossing required along the route.
No dedicated trail parking is available; parking may be available on-street along the route, such as at Bitterbrush Park on Jermann Court. Be sure to follow any posted parking signs and regulations.
