This is a great trail with beautiful views of Washoe Valley. Today I asked a park ranger who was buried in the grave site at the bottom of the hill, apparently there is a dog and a memorial for a woman who hiked the trail every day, however she is not buried there.

nice little hike

Someone put up a coded gate on Duck Hill Road. This trail is no longer accessible via that route. If you drive a couple miles down the road, there is a small area to park that is at the base of the hill with the gazebo. Relatively steep.

Awesome short trail. Did it this morning, New Years Day, 2015, ON a great sunny day. Cant wait to do it again and going further up the hill.
