This project has been divided into four separate design packages:
SNPLMA funded: trail: $2,772,853; trailheads: $6,229,080
Estimated completion: trailheads are complete and open; trail by summer 2013; bridge is open.
Length: 6-mile urban bike trail, 2.6-mile mountain bike trail
The Amargosa Trail and Trailheads project is being completed in four phases: mountain bike/hiking trail, trailheads, paved multi-use trails, and the Amargosa pedestrian bridge between Siena Heights Trailhead and Cactus Wren Park.
One trailhead is located south of Horizon Ridge Parkway, adjacent to Shaded Canyon; a second trailhead is located north of Horizon Ridge Parkway along Paseo Verde Parkway, and the third trailhead will be located at St. Rose Parkway and Siena Heights, between Eastern Avenue and Coronado Center.
The development of the Amargosa Trail and trailheads provides amenities for users such as parking areas, restroom facilities, shade components, and some recreation features. Educational kiosks and interpretive signage will include information on the history of the Amargosa Trail, Amargosa power easement with Valley Electric Company, and safety around power lines.
The Amargosa Trail and necessary crossings were identified by the City of Henderson and the non-motorized alternative transportation mode plan as an important connection for the Regional Alternate Transportation System.
