You can’t miss this ducky-filled trail!
It’s no secret that Nevada is a beautiful state with breathtaking hiking trails to enjoy. However, one truly unique route is perfect for those looking for a whimsical outing. The path in question is the marvelous Rubber Ducky Trail! Well, its nickname is almost as famous as its actual name, Old Spanish Trail. This Las Vegas hike features a tree-covered to the brim with a plethora of rubber ducks. The Joshua plant acts as a mother goose to her flock of colorful rubber duckies.
The Old Spanish Trail, or as we prefer to call it, The Rubber Ducky Trail, is found among the Cottonwood Valley Trail System in Las Vegas.
The Cottonwood Valley is a fantastic area to explore as there are many great trails to try. But we feel it’s safe to say that few will meet you with such a colorful surprise. You’ll be able to reach this ducky oasis by starting at the Late Night Trailhead.
The Rubber Dicky Trail is relatively short; at just 1.8 miles in length, it’s an ideal Sunday morning excursion. This is an excellent path for those of us who prefer our hikes, short and sweet!
The trail is also popular among mountain bikers, so we do recommend taking your bike out if you enjoy mountain biking.
You’ll find signs that will lead you to the tree filled with rubber ducks. You’ll be rewarded with a fabulous photo opt that will give you the bragging rights bestowed upon those who post exercise pictures with an added cool factor.
The origin of the rubber duckies is officially unknown but the word on the street is that a mountain biker may be responsible. But regardless of who transformed this trail into a rubber ducky oasis, we couldn’t be happier!
