Yes the new trail website for River Mountains Loop Trail is finally here. Users have been asking for a fresher more interactive web site. The new site brings together Facebook, Blogging and web information all in one. Maps and trail heads was a key part of the new design. Working with our web creator, Steve Rypka of GreenDreamWeb, we were able to give you all our current maps and create trail head information including photos of each and Google Maps to find your way. Thank you Steve.
Photos play a key part in telling the trail story so keep your eyes open for new photos from the editor and fans who post their adventures along the River Mountains Loop Trail.
We wish all ” Happy Trails” and many of them.
Your web design team….

River Mountains trail loop comes up as permanently closed on the new Google Maps. Is this an error?
Have not seen or heard this anywhere else. No trail not closed.
Are talking maps on this web page or Google in general.?

Is this trail good for inline skating?
Yes, It’s great for inline skating! We’ve seen many skaters on the trail. Keep in mind that there are several steep inclines and declines to deal with so be careful!

Does anyone have any details on the less than clearly marked “detour” around the closed section near Racetrack Road? I like the trail because it get me off the less-than-“bicycle friendly” streets of Las Vegas. Kind of disappointing to have a detour that dumps you back onto streets and then the detour signs disappear leaving you on your own. Is this a recent temporary closure due to the recent flash floods?
This detour is due to a resurfacing project being done by the City of Henderson. The trail is marked for the detour which should put you back on the trail near Athens and Lake Mead. The project is being done in 2 phases. The first phase which is nearly complete, runs from the SNWA plant near Burkholder Road to Ithaca Road. The second phase will run from Ithaca to Lake Mead. This section should be complete by the end of October.
Hope this answers your questions.
How long is the entire loop?
The River Mountains Loop Trail is 35 miles around. If you intend to ride, walk or skate the trail make sure you bring plenty of water and nutrition along.
