Clark County Parks and Recreation has been hard at work during the past several months installing several miles of multi-use trails throughout the Clark County Wetlands Park. The Sunrise Mountain Trailhead, at the southern end of Hollywood Boulevard, provides the best access point, with trails extending west to the Clark County Nature Preserve and east towards Lake Las Vegas. The network of trails includes more than seven miles of asphalt, making for an ideal bike path that eventually connects to the River Mountains Loop Trail. The trailhead also includes a staging area for loading and unloading horses for equestrian use.
Construction also concluded on the Duck Creek Trailhead near Sam Boyd Stadium. The updated trailhead includes a completely redesigned parking area to allow easier access. The area also includes water fountains, shaded picnic structures and bathrooms. Trails from this area provide access to the Clark County In-Lieu Fee Wetland Mitigation Ponds which are excellent for bird watching.
Clark County also has installed a hard packed dirt trail that extends along the southern area of the Las Vegas Wash. It is anticipated that this tail system will be paved with asphalt in 2014, as a more permanent feature. The weather this time of year is great, so come out and explore!
