We did this trail two days ago and loved it so much that we did it the next day as well. It is a beautiful hike with some great views. Our pups loved it and so did we! I highly recommend checking it out. We will definitely be back to this trail next time we return to Reno!

Hard 2 find, if u are heading out of vegas, go past hoover dam 4 miles take turn out parking, walk down "gulley". Keep following wash to river. It's worth the hike!

Great hike for watching rock climbers!

Beautiful, 63° October day with beautiful vistas and Aspen color popping. Scant snow, great sunlight and only saw 2 people in 11 miles

The dunes can be reached via us 93 north to the headquarters of the Paharanagat Wildlife Reserve. Drive down Alamo road for 27 miles to the dune which can be driven to. Very remote site by desert dry lake.

A lot of switchbacks, but definitely an amazing hike as long as you don't miss the springs!

Thanks BLM! What a unique treasure. I actually had to return at sunrise, after visiting at sunset.

Nice run, but getting up to the summit involved a little bit of climbing.

Great Hike! Offers good scenic views of both the East and West sides of the Spring Mountains!

Love this trail. It's beautiful in the fall, the trees were amazing. My dog loved the cooler weather. Mostly uphill on the way to the falls, a little more relaxed the way back. I've done this hike half a dozen times and it's great each time!

Hiked it at the end of september. Cabin was well stocked with necessities. Spring was trickling with water which we filtered and used for cooking. Plenty of places to pitch tents or hang hammocks around the cabin. Beautiful ponderosa pines everywhere around the cabin area. A great hike that starts in the desert and ends in a pine forest. No fires allowed when we went but there is a wood burning stove in the cabin. At least half of the hike is in a wash so the climb is a bit strenuous especially if you are carrying a lot of weight. I would not rely on the water in summer months although it was flowing at about .5L/min while we were there.
