Length: 1.1 mi • Est. 27 m
An easy walk or bike ride through a 130-acre nature preserve located in the Las Vegas valley. The trail is broken into 2 short, connected loops - Quail Run & Coyote; when you do them both and walk to the preserve and back you can make it into a 2-mile route. There are countless natural surface trails that connect as well to vary the route. This is both an unexpected and pleasant surprise for both visitors and Las Vegas residents. The Wetlands Park protects 2900 acres of unique & varied wildlife habitat. The Las Vegas wash flows through this park, supporting fragile & threatened areas of marsh & riparian habitat. Coyote, quail & rabbit are prolific along the wash, and wetlands, especially at dawn & dusk. There is no fee to use these trails and the main trailhead (on Broadbent Blvd.) & parking is open 24 hours. The fire last year burned the observation tower - hopefully it will be rebuilt. When you are walking amongst the reeds, marshes & meadows, with the city noise a distant hum, you can almost imagine what it must have been like in Las Vegas when the wetlands covered this area, and game was prolific. There is a picnic area at the trailhead but no restrooms. Accessibility: The main trail surface is paved concrete and typically at least six feet wide. The grade is gentle (all estimated 3% or less), so most wheelchair and stroller users will likely find this trail navigable.Show more

This trail is a shared-use path over 14 miles in total around the perimeter of the park and this park is home to hundreds of species of animals. Accessibility: There do not appear to be any designated accessible spaces in the small paved parking lot off of Galleria Drive at the east end of the trail. There do not appear to be any striped access aisles. The trail surface is asphalt, smooth, and typically at least 6 feet wide. The most accessible portion of the trail is starting from 0.8 miles until the end. The estimated grade is mostly gentle (5% or less) except for a steep uphill and downhill section from about 0.4 to 0.7 miles when going west. Hikers using wheelchair/mobility equipment or strollers may need assistance in the steeper sections or to avoid them for safety. There are benches and picnic tables along the route for resting.Show more
