September 21st,
During this time of year, I suggest going around 3-4pm. The sun is in position behind the hills which provided A LOT of shade. I went with a friend and the hike took about 4 hours to complete. It was amazing! I strongly advise to bring water. The waterfall at the end made the hike worth it.

A but kicker there and a breeze on the way back. Nice scenery.

I wouldn't call this easy by any means, but it is a pretty trail with a gorgeous waterfall at the end. Will do this again.

Sweet little paved trail that is .8 mi down, then .8 mi back up the hill. You enjoy the trickling of Morgan Creek while you walk. This trail has lots of southern and western exposure-great for early morning or early evening walk. Bring water!

rather boring, hot, no shade. the creek is nice but your barely next to it. skip this and drive to the upper trails instead. this trail connects to the upper and that's where it starts getting pretty.

Very pretty and shady! I highly recommend making sure you pee before start the hike because the water from the creek can definitely get to you.

love this trail its natures serenity at its finest.

We only went about a mile but it was well worth the effort. Beautiful scenery and moderately challenging.

i love this hike, but it's not "easy". take a lot of water and a hat on hot days or you will burn. it takes about 4 hours with a couple breaks to let the dogs drink and cool off in the creek. some parts are very rocky.

Trail is easy to follow but markers get scarce for a bit. Beautiful hike!

This trail was great! I did it two weeks in a row. Anyways, the description says "easy", but I'd give it a "moderate" destination, only because of the fairly steep hike up. My legs were burning. It was fantastic!

Bring water, and a sandwich to enjoy at the waterfall. Start early in warmer months.

Did this as a loop trail from Thomas creek trailhead, up over Dry Pond then down to Whites Creek trailhead (2 cars). About 5 miles. Probably another mile to complete loop. Good steady climb to dry pond, which was a dry, low swail of dry grasses. Nice views of Slide Mtn (Mt. Rose ski area). Late summer and late in day. Plenty of shade. Lower areas follow near the creeks for a ways. The drop into Whites is south aspect and more exposed. Likely hot earlier in day. Saw lots of mountain bikes (high school team) and some hikers and dogs. About two hours without rush. Brought out of town guests who gushed about how pretty the hike was. Lucky to have this so close to town.
