St. Rose Parkway trail is located along St. Rose Parkway from Interstate 215 to Las Vegas Boulevard, providing a 12-foot-wide asphalt trail. The southern part of the trail, between Las Vegas Boulevard and Bowes Avenue, will sweep around the M Resort Spa & Casino. Future proposed phases for St. Rose Parkway Trail include extending the trail to Interstate 15, where it will tie into the Clark County regional trail system.
Design elements and materials along the trail will be rustic in appearance, made of materials such as stone, concrete and oxidized iron. Decorative abstractions relating to the desert environment will be displayed on vertical surfaces or as public art along the trail.
Shade structures are planned to be placed at some major intersections with enhanced drought tolerant plantings, and at trail oases spaced at 200-foot intervals where enhanced plantings and seating areas will be located. The City has partnered with the Nevada Department of Transportation and Clark County to ensure a consistent theme and plant palette upon final build-out.
St. Rose Parkway Trail has been identified by the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition as a critical link to the regional system, which includes Clark County, City of Las Vegas, City of North Las Vegas, Boulder City, and adjacent public lands.
