This is Your Backyard (TIYB)
It sometimes comes as a surprise to newly relocated Nevadans—as well as visitors from other states and abroad—that southern Nevada is a fantastic outdoor destination. Las Vegas, Clark County, Henderson, North Las Vegas, and Boulder City are situated in 7.5 million acres of public lands, many of which are connected by more than 1,000 miles of hiking and biking trails.
Get Outdoors Nevada has been a vital community partner in creating and coordinating programs and initiatives that connect residents and visitors to these beautiful outdoor avenues while focusing on the need to care for these places for generations to come!
Vegas ValleyRim Trail
Get Outdoors Nevada is an integral partner in a project to encircle the Las Vegas Valley with an uninterrupted, 100-mile loop trail for walking, running, and cycling. To date, Clark County, the City of Las Vegas, the City of North Las Vegas, the City of Henderson, the Regional Transportation Commission, the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition, and the Southern Nevada Agency Partnership have all passed resolutions in support of the initiative.
Lower Colorado RiverWater Trail Alliance
Get Outdoors Nevada is the home of this coalition, which obtained National Water Trails System status for the Black Canyon portion of the Colorado River (Hoover Dam to Davis Dam) with the goal of protecting the environment and promoting activities like kayaking, canoeing, fishing, cycling, hiking, and experiencing hot springs. Now this group is starting on the next segment.
