Trail Information

Pedestrian and Bike Trail in North Las Vegas Lower Las Vegas Wash Regional Trail Las Vegas Wash Regional Trail in North Las Vegas

The City of North Las Vegas has planned a trail network that will total over 70 miles once fully developed. This network was adopted as part of the 2011 Comprehensive Trails and Bikeways Master Plan, depicted in the Comprehensive Trails and Bikeways Map. The purpose for the Comprehensive Trails and Bikeways Master Plan is to develop a network of trails and bikeways and establish design standards, guidelines, goals, objectives, and policies. A key component of the Master Plan is the Implementation Plan, which defines priorities for the location, development and maintenance of trails and bikeways, and includes a phasing plan with both short term and long term action strategies.

Funding for the city’s current trail development has been provided by the Bureau of Land Management through the sale of public lands as authorized by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act. Upon completion, approximately 15 miles of multi-use trails will be available along the Lower Las Vegas Wash and the Upper Las Vegas Wash. To date, approximately 5 ½ miles have been completed along the Lower Las Vegas Wash, extending from Tropical Parkway southeast to Alexander Road and 3 ½ miles of multi-use trails have been completed along the Upper Las Vegas Wash, extending from Deer Springs Way south to Craig Road.

The Las Vegas Wash Regional Trail System, which includes the Lower Las Vegas Wash and the Upper Las Vegas Wash, is located primarily off-street, but in few instances is aligned adjacent to roadways. The trail consists of a 10’ wide asphalt path that is designated “multi-use,” meaning it can accommodate a variety of users such as walkers, joggers, cyclists, skateboarders, strollers, wheelchairs, etc. The trails are not intended for motorized use or equestrians. Trail amenities include landscaping, lighting, trash cans, benches, doggie (trash) stations; trail nodes with shaded rest areas; and trail heads with shaded picnic areas, drinking fountains, and off-street parking.

There is an additional 24 miles of developed multi-use trails in Aliante (located in the northwestern region of North Las Vegas). The Aliante trail system consists of concrete pathways with a minimum width of 8 feet and landscaping on both sides. These trails are located adjacent to streets and in drainage facilities.

Trail segments under development:
