Celebrating the Tahoe Rim Trail
River Mountains Loop Trail is a 35-mile paved multi-use, multi-jurisdictional trail surrounding the River Mountains. It connects Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Hoover Dam, Boulder City, and Henderson to the rest of the Las Vegas Valley. The trail’s success is due to collaboration and community involvement among an active coalition of public agencies, community groups, businesses and individuals (designated 2010).
The Tahoe Rim Trail NRT designation includes 96 miles of the 165-mile trail which runs along the ridges and mountain tops that encircle Lake Tahoe. The trail winds through two states (California and Nevada), six counties, three national forests, and state park land. The Tahoe Rim Trail is divided into eight segments anchored by easily accessible trailheads.
