I was looking for an easy walk as I recover from an injury This was just perfect. Most is paved, but there are a few unpaved trails to take, too

Very, very, short and easy hikes that leave much to be desired. High traffic trails are damaged by horses and humans. I expected so much more and left feeling disappointed.

For being so close to city life this is a gem. Nice walking trails, plenty of plant life, a few streams.

We were looking for an easy trail where my 3 and 7 year old kids could ride their bikes and the adults could walk off some thanksgiving turkey. The trail that is accessible to bikes is on the perimeter of the reserve, and winds you around a water treatment plant. Also the trail head is the neighborhood park not the nature center located a little further down the road. It was fine, but there was a lot of trash... I assume the more nature-focused experience would have been if we had just all walked and been on the better maintained reserve trails. I did run into an employee who was super helpful and very knowledgeable.

It's a nice mostly paved walk. we did about a two mile loop. I don't know if I would call it a hike but we enjoyed it.

Nice and paved area and also non paved trails. Doesn't even feel like your in Vegas! It's easy to get confused though if you go through the non paved areas. Haha a lot of bench areas. Seen a few roadrunners. We went passed the big bridge and seemed like most folks were on bikes there. So it would be a Neat area to also go biking too, I'd say!

Absolutely beautiful! Definitely walk all the trails in the nature preserve. You'll see bunnies, quail, greater roadrunners and more (and bugs). It is a quiet and peaceful place with lots of beautiful things to see.

This park has really grown over the past few years. There are lots of trails - both paved and non-paved. It's fun to see so much water in the desert and water-type foliage. And you'll most likely see a lot of bunnies!

The trail I've run the most starts at Wetlands and goes all the way to Lake Las Vegas. It's a nice trail. Starts out pretty mild, but there are a lot of crazy hills as you go along. It's mostly used by cyclists - at least when I've been out there. Not sure I've actually ever seen another runner while I've run this trail.

There is also a really cool hidden canyon, carved out by the Las Vegas Wash. You can easily climb down into the canyon - just be sure to do it on a clear day. Wouldn't be very fun (or safe) during a flash flood.

The park is well maintained and there are restrooms within the park (but not out along the trail). The restrooms were clean every time I've had to use them. Parking is plentiful, too. I doubt you'd ever had an issue finding a place to park.
