Description

This trail officially starts in Wetlands Park Nature Preserve off Hollywood Circle near the Neighborhood Park. Heading north, the trail toes the line between a suburban neighborhood and desert scrubland before making a sharp right to leave the neighborhood behind for greener surroundings.

Soon, the trail joins Mesquite Way for a short section before crossing Weir Bridge over Las Vegas Wash. Even though it's early on in the trail, take a break here to check out this beautiful oasis in the desert. After enjoying the wash, head right at the next junction to continue on the North Loop.

From here, the trail continues south to follow the wash for roughly a mile before bending left (north) at a junction with a dirt path to re-enter the scrubby desert. While this part of the trail is a slight uphill gradient, it's so gentle that you might not even notice. Eventually, you'll reach a junction with the Sunrise Trailhead Connector where you'll want to turn right.

At this point, the trail begins a nice, gentle descent out of the eroding foothills to find Telephone Line Road and the pleasant Las Vegas Wash. While not right on the wash, the trail still follows good scenery as it heads east above the wash on its way to the bridge at Powerline Crossing and its end in a junction with the South Loop and River Mountains Loop Trail Connector.
