Introducing the Summerlin Trail System
Did you know that there are over 200+ miles of trails in Summerlin?
Whether you’re a cyclist, a runner, a parent with a stroller or just someone who loves to be outdoors, the Summerlin Trail system has you covered.
The Summerlin Trail System is comprised of four kinds of trails:
Street-side trails are the backbone of the Summerlin Trail System. Always landscaped on both sides and set several feet off the road, street-side trails vary in width from five to eight feet and are designed to serve both serious and casual users. Ideal for walking, jogging and strolling.
Village trails are often located in natural arroyos or man-made open space corridors within a village in off-street areas and are designed to provide respite from noise and traffic, and serve long-distance walkers, runners, cyclist, skaters and children traveling to and from school. These trails open up natural view corridors for all to enjoy.
Regional trails are planned as part of the proposed 2,000-plus-mile, valley-wide trail system that will eventually connect the Summerlin Trail System with trails throughout the Las Vegas valley and Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.
Proposed trails are located along the eight-mile 215 beltway and along flood control channels in Summerlin and are designed for multiple non-motorized uses. Regional trails are being constructed as a public/private partnership of Clark County and the City of Las Vegas in cooperation with The Howard Hughes Corporation.
Natural trails will be located along Summerlin’s western border. These trails will connect the Summerlin Trail System with regional trails located in the nearly Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Natural Trails will be located in low density areas and are intended for use by outdoor enthusiasts and hiking buffs.
The first 5.5-mile phase of the Clark County Red Rock Canyon Legacy Trails project will begin in Summerlin near Sky Vista Drive, linking directly to the Red Rock Visitors Center.
The Howard Hughes Corp. is working closely with Clark County, the Bureau of Land Management, the Federal Highway Administration and other groups to help design and implement the planned trail extension.
