South Meadows Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A spread of wetland preserved among South Valley subdivisions anchors the South Meadows Trail, part of an urban trail system linking residents and visitors with parks, schools, shopping, and natural areas.
This section of the evolving South Meadows Trail System skirts a wetland on the south side of Whites Creek. It’s bounded on all sides by subdivisions but still boasts views of Mount Rose, Slide Mountain, and the Virginia Range. The wetland supports habitat for a variety of urban wildlife, including rabbits and red-winged blackbirds. Cattails and
reeds maintain a foothold in the center of the marsh, but the invasive weed commonly called whitetop clots the rim; the flowers are pretty but they’ve become a plague on Nevada’s rangelands."
