Laughlin's Colorado River Heritage Greenway Park and Trails project, was named one of the nation's most promising projects designed to protect special places and reconnect Americans to the outdoors.
The project, also known as the North Reach, officially opened to visitors in 2012. The Colorado River Heritage Greenway Park and Trail project is an amazing amenity for the community of Laughlin. It will greatly enhance the area as a destination for eco-tourism and outdoor adventure, and it will help preserve unique vistas and landscape for future generations.
The project consists of 9 miles of trails in the Laughlin area for bicyclists, pedestrians and equestrian riders, and includes expansion of the Laughlin Riverwalk, fully developed restrooms and trailheads, picnic sites, shade shelters, fishing piers, and a highway pedestrian bridge overpass and underpass providing access to the Colorado River. Visitors of all abilities can enjoy the trails and accessible fishing areas.
The Colorado River Heritage project is part of a larger regional trails system designed to link Laughlin and the surrounding community to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and parts of Arizona.
The project has been nationally recognized as both an America's Great Outdoors Initiative Project and an America's Great Outdoors Rivers Initiative Project. The America's Great Outdoors Initiative highlights two projects in each of the 50 states that promote conservation and outdoor recreation and the America's Great Outdoors Rivers Initiative identifies 10 projects in the Pacific Northwest and Western States.
