  • I trail run and hike this with my dogs and its best during the cooler months. I use dirt trails off the main trail as I have found "shady" rest spots for me and the poocheslike a cave up high overlook...  more »

  • I chose this trail so that I could just ride and look around and not have to deal with traffic, what a great choice! It was challenging with all the up hills and great fun with the downhills. I rented...  more »

  • What a gem! We love to walk and this loop offers everything. You can walk on the 35 mile paved loop or wander onto the miles of dirt trails. Check out the website and print the map to see where there is water, restrooms, park ranger stations, parking lots etc. for the section you choose to walk. You'll see hikers, bikers and horseback riders and everyone is nice and respect each others hobby. There are amazing views of the valley and Lake Mead. And there is lots of wildlife to look out for. We were lucky to see coyote and quail on our last walk and have seen big horn sheep and mule deer. There are some very easy walking sections and some challenging sections. Please do not attempt any long walks in the hot summer months (go to Mt. Charleston!) Wear a hat and bring sunscreen and lots of water, if you think you'll need 2 bottles of water bring 4 and I like to freeze my water the night before so it gradually melts and is ice cold. And don't assume the weather will be warm, know that it does get quite cold and windy in the desert so check the weather before you go. Have a great time!

  • My only complaint is the vandalism and lack of emergency services if you need it. I wonder what would happen if you had an accident and need emergency care!? The trails were fun and winding, up & down, for good exercise! Good job Clark County!
  • I love this place. It's talking distance and has so much to offer to anyone who wants to bike, hike, run, or go on horseback
  • BEST TRAIL! Most accessible, widest variety of scenery changes, restrooms, rest stops, decent lighting for night travelers, most "rugged" with most amenities

Where to stay in Henderson

Henderson is often considered a neighborhood of Las Vegas, though it's a separate city. You'll find many chain hotels here that offer better deals on rooms than those along the Vegas strip. A few fine resorts offer full-service luxury accommodations around the city's famous shopping area.
