Welcome to the Mojave Desert. Las Vegas has both oasis-like escapes and more natural desert lands. There’s something for everyone if you know where and when to look.
The parks are linked by a series of hiking and biking trails.
And if you enjoy these natural spaces, you might to visit the Ethel M Botanic Garden, a curated collection of desert plants with educational signage! Next to this garden is the Ethel M Store with chocolate for sale and an accessible and hygienic factory tour.
Vegas Valley Rim Trail
Our parks remain open. Please practice safe social distancing.

I knew that had to be Clark County Wetlands Park — a real treasure. The nature center there is informative and fun.
Sloan Canyon is mesmerizingly quiet. I love roaming around in it. And after a rain the scent of the creosote bushes is almost overpowering. pic.twitter.com/aaE6biXIX9
