Regional Trails and Open Space

Through the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition, Clark County works with a variety of agencies to coordinate the planning and building of an extensive network of trails in and around the Las Vegas Valley.

The Neon to Nature system is aimed at increasing people’s access to the regional trail system taking shape around them. It will ultimately consist of hundreds of miles of trails throughout the Las Vegas Valley with connections to the surrounding Federal lands. The Southern Nevada Health District hosts a trail finder tool under the Neon to Nature banner. Neon to Nature website: http://www.gethealthy

The trails program is a plan to provide an extensive system of routes that provide outdoor enjoyment and accessibility to County residents. The County's commitment is to build safe, easily accessible, and aesthetically pleasing off-street trails to improve the general quality of life throughout Clark County. These trails offer needed open space and recreation areas to hundreds of people.

A primary trail system was cooperatively developed through the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition and Clark County. Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson are planning and building an extensive network of urban trails in the Las Vegas Valley. This system will create a regional trails network and provide interconnectivity with local neighborhood trails.

The County has completed about 50 miles of multi-use and 8 miles of equestrian trails in the Las Vegas Valley with 23 miles under development County wide.

Trails and Parks
A few County trails provide connections to several parks with two of the largest being Sunset Park and the County Wetlands Park. Parks and trails provide opportunities for physical activity and have the potential to help Clark County residents develop a healthier active lifestyle.
