Details

• Beginning in September, a new schedule for this walk:
7PM Monday/Thursday

• Dog friendly. We walk on the mostly-lighted recreational path from the Silver Springs Recreation Center east to Legacy Park and back. This is a nice walk with a great group.

• Evening Stroll in a nice new place. Pittman Wash has a mostly-lighted paved footpath with benches for resting; plant information markers along the way add interest; birds; creosote. Difficulty level = 1-out-of-5

• Where: we will meet at Silver Springs Rec-Center between the tennis courts and the swimming pools. We will walk approximately 3.3-mile round trip (about an hour) on the paved walkway, including a brief rest and regroup at Legacy Park where there are drinking fountains, restrooms, tables, and benches.

• To get to the trailhead: from Green Valley Parkway (between Warm Springs and Windmill, near Robindale and the train tracks) go east on SilverSprings until you come to the Rec-Center on the south side of the street. See the map (link below) for details.

• The Rec-Center is located at:
1951 Silver Springs Parkway
Henderson, NV 89074
between Green Valley Parkway and Valle Verde,
north of Windmill, south of Warm Springs.

Tennis shoes ("sneakers") are fine but walking shoes are better for your feet. Please bring enough water for yourself and your dog, and a light because we are out after sunset. The paved path is also used by bicyclists, so please be aware of their presence and leave room for them to pass.
