Not much of a hike, but the dogs liked it. Easy parking - well marked trail down to river. Mostly rocky shoreline. Probably not the best location for a family picnic. Good for a jaunt down to river and back. Some people fishing and said they have caught bluegill and bass. Lots of carp.

Completed this trail loop in about an hour. Area is under construction and is open to hikers during the weekend and holidays. Not the most scenic but still an interesting hike with different elevations. Some wildlife was roaming around, like a coyote that caught a fish in the wash.

Not the most scenic trail and not well maintained, but still interesting.

This isn't even a hike. Its just a little trail that goes down a bluff to the wash that flows from Lake Las Vegas. It is completely covered in litter, and really just kind of disgusting. I've read that animals can be spotted here, and that might be true, but if you're interested in sighting animals you're much better off visiting the Wetlands Preserve in Henderson (near Boyd Stadium) where quail, rabbits and other animals are a common sight. This so-called trail isn't worth your time, and because of the pollution it won't even be good for kids. Once again, the Wetland Preserve is a much better alternative.

Fairly easy hike to get things going for the year is how I use this trail! It is a nice hike with some moderate challenges to it, but nothing too terrible.
