Not everyone likes to golf in Mesquite or try to get lucky at one of our 4 casinos. One way to enjoy our area is to just take a walk! We have miles of trails around Mesquite - if you have the energy, you can walk from one end of town to the other, and enjoy our Mesquite City Parks on the way.
In the summer it gets pretty hot here and you might not want to be out - but is so nice once that sizzling sun goes down. That would be a great time to go down to the Virgin River Trail at the south end of Mesquite.
The trail is completely paved with streetlights that come on at dusk so that you can walk it 24 hours a day. It is wheelchair accessible so that anyone can enjoy it. Sometimes you will see a mom pushing a toddler in a stroller - sometimes a healthy looking senior citizen at a brisk walk. You might see whole families walking the trail on the way to one of our many parks for a picnic. Motorized vehicles are not allowed, so you don't have to worry too much about getting run over by an ATV or a golf cart.
One of the nicest times to walk the trail is early morning - even in the summer heat. As the sun comes up the southern mountains turn shades of blue and pink with the morning sun light.
Dogs are allowed on a leash on all of our trails - just remember to pick up after them!
The Virgin River Trail is only a couple of miles from the center of Mesquite - bring your lunch to the park - you will still have time for a pleasant outdoor break from work with a walk along the Virgin River. To start at the river part of the walk, head north on Grapevine Rd, pass Hafen Lane. At the end of Grapevine Road, there is parking to the left. From there you can walk down to the river on the path, or head left and take the paved walkway to the next Mesquite Park.
You may have heard of Sun City Mesquite walking trails and parks - they are all within Pulte Del Webb's Sun City Mesquite subdivision for 55 plus residents and maintained by their Homeowner Association. Those parks and walking trails are for Sun City residents.
