Katie C. on Dry Pond Trail
Very pretty hike. I went in late October and the fall colors were gorgeous!
Excellent hike in the fall with all the beautiful fall colors on the aspen trees. There are a couple places where you cross the creek and need to cross on rocks otherwise you'll get your shoes wet. Very shady trail and plenty of parking at the trailhead. Also, pit toilets available at the parking lot/Trailhead. No toilets on the trail. We packed a lunch and ate it at our turn around spot. Very well signed trail. Bring water and a snack or lunch. We hiked a total of 8 miles!
Katie C. on Hunter Creek Trail
Beautiful in the fall. A good portion is in direct sun so it got pretty hot. Great trail!
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!
The trail is definitely not friendly in the summer as you spend most of it in the sun. My 11 year old daughter and I run together often and thought this would be a great place to run, but I slipped on loose gravel three times and eventually sprained my ankle. However, we did take a lunch that we enjoyed at the waterfall before running back and it was a great experience.
this trail was a bit challenging at times but Absolutly doable. a few spots were steep but the challenge is mostly in endurance/distance. Absolutly gorgeous views through the whole loop. I went mid October and while there was some color change I am excited to try this gorgeous trail again in the spring!
Lots of sun the majority of the trail. Uphill in and down hill out. My 6 year old didn't do so well on the hike in with all the sun and constantly climbing but he mad it to the waterfall and did a lot better on the way back. Saw quit a few other parents with young children but not all made it. Took us five hours with all the stops to rest for my son. A great hike!
