This 8 mile trail connects McCullough Hills TH on the east side of the McCullough Hills with Anthem Hills Park TH on the west side. It is a dirt surfaced, wide, multi-purpose trail. The first section has good views east, and the second part has good views west including Las Vegas and Red Rock. The trail heads south from the under-construction McCullough Hills TH at the end of Mission Blvd (will have water and restrooms), crosses over the hill crest ridge at about half way, and continues west to Anthem Hills Park TH. It is very easy to follow until about mile 6.8, when a welter of official (Anthem Hills East and Bursage Loop) and unofficial trails confuses things. Head along the ridge and then the power line. The trailhead is a kiosk on McCullough Hills Parkway, not in the park as one would expect. The Anthem East Trail TH is in the park and can be used as an alternate.

I really enjoy this trail. It's close to my home, but you feel like you're completely out of the city when you're out there. Good for running, hiking, or biking.

Great trail. Small up and down hills keep you at a steady heart rate.

A good variety of wide trials turning into single track. Well maintained long trail.

Nice trail and close if you're in Henderson. Lots of side trails off the main trail which are a bit more fun and challenging. Scenery gets better after the first mile.

Not a bad trail. Not super challenging but very long if you hike both ways. I took my small dog (20 lbs.) and we hiking from the Mission Blvd trailhead to the Anthem trailhead and back. There were quite a few people out on the trail because of some off-road races going on. Some nice views at various points.
