Proposed Arizona Heritage Trail

April 13, 2016

BULLHEAD CITY, Arizona – The Bureau of Reclamation is seeking public comment on the proposed Arizona Heritage Trail within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area on lands managed by Reclamation and the National Park Service (NPS). The proposed Trail’s approximately 3.5-mile-long hardened-surface trail would connect to the existing Colorado River Heritage Greenway Park and Trails in Nevada.

It would create an approximately seven mile loop connecting the communities of Bullhead City and Laughlin, and provide increased opportunities for recreational activities such as walking, running, bicycling, bird watching, fishing, and kayaking. It would follow existing primitive roads for much of its route.

The proposed Trail would be located in Mohave County, Arizona, between the Colorado River and Bullhead City. Reclamation and the NPS would authorize use of Reclamation and NPS land for the trail and would construct the trail, which would be operated, patrolled and maintained by the City of Bullhead City.

Reclamation, NPS, the City of Bullhead City, Mohave County and Clark County are working in partnership to plan and design the trail, and prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the potential impacts of the trail. The EA is being prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act.

The project partners are requesting your comments and recommendations on the proposed trail route, alternative route and potential issues. Please send written comments to the Bureau of Reclamation, Attn: Faye Streier, National Environmental Policy Act Coordinator, Bureau of Reclamation, P.O. Box 61470, Boulder City, NV 89006. Electronic comments may be submitted to Please ensure your comments are postmarked by May 12, 2016.
