Description

If your pup has been lying around the house all day, take them for a walk on the Flamingo Arroyo Trail so they can get some much needed exercise. This woofderful urban trail leaves the lights and action of the Las Vegas strip behind and runs through suburban Clark County.

The trail runs about 15 miles, so your dog will have plenty of room to expend their extra energy. The western end of the trail begins at the Pecos-McLeod Trailhead, which can be found just off Pecos-McLeod Interconnect and Emerson Avenue. Here you will find a couple shade shelters, lovely native plants, and a bench. From this point, you and your furry friend travel east. The trail follows the Flamingo Wash for most of the way. A fun fact for your pup to know is that an arroyo isn’t a stream but rather a dry creek that fills up with rain or irrigation runoff.

As you make your way through the neighborhoods, you encounter some busy streets. However, strategically placed bridges and underpasses allow for safe passage. Your pup will love trotting along the sidewalks and checking out the happenings of the area. The eastern access point is Sunrise Trailhead. It’s located in the northeast corner of the Clark County Wetlands Park. If you choose to continue your walk in the park, check the map since doggos are only allowed in certain areas.

Since the Flamingo Arroyo Trail is lengthy, chances are you and your pup won’t go the entire distance. Plan ahead of time so you can arrange for a pick up or a shuttle. Since the temperatures can get pretty warm and there isn’t much shade along the way, it’s super impawtant that you bring enough water to keep you and your pup well hydrated. Also, don’t forget to have a couple clean up bags on hand and pick up after your furry pal. Your pup will agree, a walk on Flamingo Arroyo Trail is time well spent!
