Fodor's Review

Stretching 35 miles around the River Mountains, this multi-use paved trail is perfect for hiking, biking, running, jogging, and horseback riding. For a stretch, the trail parallels the shores of Lake Mead, and connects with a historic spur that leads from the Lake Mead National Recreation Area to a parking lot just north of the Hoover Dam. The route runs through Boulder City, Henderson, and Lake Las Vegas. You can rent bikes at JT's Bicycles in Henderson ( and All Mountain Cyclery ( in Boulder City. The most popular trailheads are at the Alan Bible Visitor Center inside the recreation area and Bootleg Canyon Park, at the north end of Yucca Street in Boulder City. Access is also available at the eastern end of Equestrian Drive in Henderson, and the Railroad Pass Hotel & Casino, also in Henderson.
