Lots of trail improvements by the county over the past couple of years has really made this a new destination hiking/biking spot. Not to mention the many locals from the new nearby housing developments who recreate here regularly. This remains a prime spot for bird watching and the occasional coyote. Bikers should follow the paved pathways, but hikers can veer off to the primitive roadways and side trails. I'd say an entire loop runs about 14 miles. Hikers might want to avoid the paved trail loop aways on the northside. They add some elevation gain and definitely will take you extra time. Summer will be way too hot to do much hiking or biking here. Spring and the Fall are ideal. Park at the Wetlands Center, Duck Creek, or along Galleria. You can also gain access from the Lake Las Vegas private development, now a Hilton.

It's so wonderful to see a little oasis in the middle of the desert! There is plenty of wildlife, especially if you go at sunrise when it's quietest. The views are great, the area is peaceful, and this is easily one of our favorite places to hike! We did sunrise walks in the summer, but beware...as soon as it's about 7, the heat is already intense. If you're not an early bird, I'd recommend autumn through spring instead!

I was not planning to spend my entire vacation gambling and drinking. I am a nature enthusiast and artist. The Clark County Wetlands are a very welcome sight with wide ADA paved trails and plenty of vegetation which attracted birds and other wildlife. There are many loops in the trail system, you can pick how far you want to walk (or jog). There are numerous places to view ponds and moving water. Shade is minimal, be sure to wear a wide brim hat. I was able to do some sketch/painting in my nature journal while overlooking water running through the wash, and took many reference photos for painting later. The volunteer staff does a terrific job picking up trash left by inconsiderate visitors. Because of the trees and vegetation that thrive near water, the views along the trail are constantly changing. Really nice getaway from city life or a way to get into nature while traveling. There are guided tours available with pre-planning and the school system has programs here.

This gem is great for all ages! We were here in Nov. and the temperature was perfect to walk the trails. The highlights on the map state "over there miles of paved accessible pedestrian paths". Who would have thought there were wetlands in a Vegas? There are beautiful views throughout the trails with benches to rest if need be. You can download the map on line but there are markers throughout guiding you to in the right direction. You can also stray off the paved paths to some pretty defined and cleared "self-guided" trails. No pets or bikes on the nature trails. There are bathrooms as well. Bring water and warning there are some annoying bugs all around.

We walk the area everytime we visit Vegas. Occasional sighting of wildlife, mostly birds. This time guinea hens and ducks. Friendly staff at visitors center and clean washrooms.

A “Must” attraction and visit included in Vegas itinerary. Spent a half day there for some hiking and jogging. Offers miles of trails and bike paths along with awesome picturesque scenery, such as ponds, river, falls and get a chance to see variety of wild life, birds. Totally worth to visit with no doubt.

Beautiful area and great facilities--can't believe it was free admission.
Sweet lady greeted us and pointed out the best things to look for on the walk.
Very quiet, so we were able to appreciate many bird calls, and saw turtles, bunnies and quail (including some babies!).

A great spot for some recreation in the winter time. Walking trails and many wild animals. Park managers really care about the surroundings.

Enjoyed our stay. Must be hot in the summer.

I recommend that you get a park map when you arrive. Initially, I thought it was going to be a very short walk on a paved sidewalk. But as we got further into the park, we realized that there were many extensions and many ways to take a very, very long walk. Along the way we saw many interesting birds, kit foxes, snapping turtles and jack rabbits. It is definitely a place to visit to get away from the Strip and get your nature/walking fix.

What an enchanting place, featuring many classes and lectures, well worth checking out. This particular tour focused on night birds. Did you know night birds have oversized eyes? I didn't either. Think of an owl's very large eyes allowing more light to come in. The speaker did a great job presenting the material in an interesting way. We saw a beaver crossing in the water. Many bunnies seemed startled to see us and scurried away. I look forward to future events with them.

Only sour note: Three uncontrolled unruly boys, completely abandoned by any parental supervision, caused quite a disturbance. Screaming, running, shouting, darting at the animals, bumping hard into people. The speaker asked them repeatedly to use "indoor voices", but there was no stopping them. I'm sure this scared off many of the nocturnal birds we wanted to see. Many people splintered off from the group due to the non-stop disturbances by these children and were unable to enjoy the information from the speaker.

Parents, please, and I beg you, teach your children how to behave appropriately. And if they won't, don't inflict them on us. Thank you.
