Dog walkers and their canine companions enjoy sunny, dry, warm weather throughout the year in Las Vegas. During winter months, daytime temperatures are usually well above freezing. Some rainfall occurs during this season, but wet weather is usually not heavy. At night, during the wintertime, it cools off rapidly at night and can reach the freezing mark, so you may want to take advantage of the milder daytime temperatures. Summer days are very hot and high temperatures do not always dissipate much at night. You may need to take shorter walks with your dog so as not to overexert or overexpose yourself and your pet which could result in heat-related illnesses.
The residential section is quiet and well landscaped with drought-tolerant surfaces, plantings, and trees. The terrain is flat and you and your dog won't need to hike up any steep hills while strolling the area. Many residential streets do not have sidewalks which means you and your pet will need to share the road with local traffic.
When walking on local streets, walk on the right side of the road facing oncoming traffic with your dog securely leashed and close by your side. Homes in the area are single-family detached dwellings that are attractive and well maintained.
Huntridge Circle Park is located on the east side of the neighborhood. This park has had problems with crime in the past and has been closed for periods of time. However, revitalization projects are undergoing to address some of the issues this park experiences. The park has a circular feature with an amphitheater, stage, and grassy seating where local events and performances take place. There is a playground and a paved walking path where you can walk with your dog.
For a longer, more natural greenway, you can load up your dog and drive 30 minutes to the trailhead of the River Mountains Loop Trail. This trail extends for over 30 miles, so even the most energetic hound should be able to burn off some energy. Cyclists also use this trail, so keep your dog leashed and under control. The trail extends to the Lake Mead National Recreation Area where the large lake, green spaces, recreational facilities, and interesting historic sites make interesting destinations for you and your pup.
