They make their appearance now and then in the rocky hills alongside Lake Las Vegas Parkway as well. See them occasionally in the mornings when I take my daughter to school. Its wonderful we haven't driven them from their habitat.

Heads up dog owners along trails. A good reason to keep your fur babies on leash. Fox news reported an incident where baited coyote traps were set along a Summerlin Trail and caught a dog walking off leash. They found five traps set just feet off trail. No reports along RMLT. ... See MoreSee Less
This is reprehensible. What do these things look like and how can they be disabled?
Is this a state or federal agency putting these things out?
My Brittany Cooper got in a trap about 10 months ago hiking in the Sloan Canyon area. Took every ounce of my strength to open the trap and free Cooper. The trap was similar to the one in photo.
They’re trapping the coyotes in Summerlin? Sigh...
What? Aren't those things illegal?
If you want to learn more about how we are trying to fight the fur trappers here in Clark County. See this website. trailsafe.org Trapping is legal in Clark county although legal traps should not be near popular areas like trails and hiking areas. All legal traps are labeled with a number ID to identify the trapper. (We got this in the last legislative session). It is illegal to spring a fur trap or remove them. Assholes got that law in the books but do what you want with them, just don’t promote it on social media what you did 😝 Our NV fish and wildlife commission is corrupt as it is run by trappers and hunters. Trappers do not have to visit the traps for days so animals languish and die horrible cruel deaths. We got the time reduced last legislative session but they fight us on everything. Fur trappers are not honorable hunters but greedy criminals that sell our wildlife pelts to China for profit. We can get this barbaric practice banned if more folks will help us at the commission meetings. Please help us stop fur trappers.
Here's wishing all of our trail users a very Merry Christmas!
We are very lucky to have such a great trail to ride, walk and roll on! ... See MoreSee Less
Merry Christmas, safe rides & have fun.
Merry Christmas to all. We are indeed very blessed to have this trail.
The RMLT is a Las Vegas treasure. Between the BLM land transfer bill being pushed in Congress and the planned routing of I-11, let's hope we can keep it that way.

Thank you! I have moved away but will forever treasure the beautiful memories of this trail.

We have received reports of cyclists racing to beat the train at the crossings in Boulder City. One incident last week caused the train engineer to activate the emergency brake on the train. The cyclist involved also gave the train engineer the one finger salute after being honked at.
Please, please, please, do not attempt to race the train to the crossings! The trains take several hundred feet to come to a stop.
Cyclists and all trail users, please give the train plenty of room and give them a friendly wave as they pass. We are all very fortunate to be sharing such a special place.
Let's respect each other out there. ... See MoreSee Less
Unbelievable...in all the years I been involved with this trail, never ever thought we would have this type of incident. We fought the State PUC to keep RR crossings at a minimum to keep trail open and unobtrusive to the user and environment. Hope this individual reads all these comments and makes amends in his/her behavior. Happy Trails to all.
Come on, Cyclists, we’re better than this.
Oh good grief. I’ve stopped and watched the train roll by and waved at the tourists. Whoever did that must have flunked physics because they would know who wins on bike vs train.
I work on the strip and they have the same mentality. They dont pay attention to the signals at Bellagio and just keep walking. When they get honked at they get upset..its always the motorists light. Its very sad
🙄 Might makes right. We know who will prevail in that situation.
Wow! We have biked along with the train countless times. We stop and watch it pass. What is wrong with people?
Too crazy for words..I'm a cyclists and just love our trains. I must have hundreds of train pictures during my cycling adventures..I feel so very lucky to have our trains and that I'm able to watch them and wave to the tourists. I agree...what is wrong with these thoughtless selfish people!!!
Well we live in a city now and all of the knuckleheads that come along with it￼, I always look forward to seeing that train it’s nice what Boulder City is doing
If were the engineer I wouldn't bother to try to stop. If these cyclists insist on having a death wish, make their wish come true!
that cycling better not be part of any of my bike clubs. give me the exact date and time and I will look them up on Strava.
They only need to lose once.
Cyclists are some of the rudest people on the road. You know its true.
I hope they got pictures of the individuals. Post them if you can.
I actually enjoy watching the train go by , it’s pretty cool !
This is why we can’t have nice things 😳
Train vs. Bike- wonder who will win......???
Classy bike rider
It’s such a shame when cousins marry...
Doubtful that the cyclist who gave the one-finger salute bothers to read such posts, but I'm glad that other cyclists are reading this. I know that most cyclists exercise courtesy and common sense - I hope that if they ever see a cyclist such as the one described here that they'll exercise the power of peer pressure to remind him that the train did everything right in this situation!
OMG, cyclist must be in a hurry to go home.
Cyclist, in general are assholes and very self entitled to the right of way. Your family will be better off... if you try to race 2 million tons of steel. Just saying.
If caught, make the rider ride on I-11...banish from RMLT. 😉
Biker is an idiot...... please use common sense out there people!! Santa Train has started up as well, more trains running so pay attention
