The hike is rather residential for a while, but very pretty still. Most of it is along the creek, but at one point it reaches a fork. I didn't use the tracker, so I didn't know which way to go, but I stuck right in the direction of the creek. Once I reached the fork, I didn't pass any people. It was very nice and peaceful. My dog loved playing in the creek. Most of it is shaded, so that's nice for a late start to the hike and it's very flat most of the way. Very small inclines.

Beautiful trail. Keep on it up to the visitor's center, where it connects to all the major Mt. Rose trails.

This is a great neighborhood trail. Very easy with a slight elevation gain. Park at the trailhead in Callahan Ranch and walk the entire trail up to Joy Lake Road. It is a pretty hike that follows a small creek and winds through pine trees. The only negative is that is can get crowded, but it is a good beginner hike.
