Love this hike! Nice for an evening stroll with the pup. Second half is quite a bit steeper than the first but at only 1.5 mi round trip, it took about a half hour.

Not a very pretty hike

Short but sweet. It packs a decent workout and view into a 1.5 miles out and back trail. The last half is pretty steep and challenging. I saw quail and jack rabbits. The top affords great views of Reno and the surrounding values. You almost feel like you are suspended over the houses below. I will have to return with the kids who will get a kick out of watching the planes take off from the airport. Be mindful on the way down, the trail is pretty loose and it is easy to lose your footing.

Have driven past this hill many times. Glad that I stopped and took the time to walk to the top. Not extremely difficult, but the grade gets steeper half way up!

Short trail. Plenty of dog walkers. Has educational signs about the area, which are pretty cool.

I hike this trail quite often as it is close to home. Gives a great panoramic view of the valley and is especially nice as dusk.

Very pleasant short hike with my four year old son.

Nice trail but difficult to maintain. Several trails branch, sending you in the wrong direction

This is the kind of trail that makes this app great! I've driven past this road thousands of times, but never driven down, looked at this hill more times yet, but never knew that there were trails on it. Nice open space that is easy to access, but city sounds are very distant. The trail is rocky as the natural topography. Be sure to stop lots to enjoy the view as you'll need to watch your feet while moving!

Really nice scenery in many parts of the area. My only complaint is that the trails are extremely rocky. Anyways, its very scenic, quite, and relaxing. There are tons of other trails you can chose from and they lead all over the mountain. I would do this trail over and over again.

A fun and relatively easy hike with nice views of the Truckee Meadows. Not a tree in the area so take lots of water if you do it in July!

Great vistas of Eastern Sierra Front and overall is a cool Interpretive trail. Better than I expected will return with my MTB. Area has a good vibe.

Nice, short in town trail with elevation and views of desert shrubs, Reno and surrounding mountains. Pleasant nearby park with lots of after work walkers and runners.

Luv running the trails at HV. Don't have to worry about others getting in your way, except for a mustang or two.

Kid friendly to an extent...very rocky. We have done 2 of the loops with a 4 and 6 year old. Very pretty and good view of various parts of the city. Nice facility to have a picnic after.

Nice relaxing walk. It's not very difficult but there can be a few points where the terrain gets a bit steep but the rocks help with footing. The view was amazing though, the endless fields were awesome!

The first trail we completed with out family of 3 boys, aged 2, 4 and 6. It was short and simple enough for them to tackle, also with some great views. I uploaded some photos of our two hikes there in January 2014.
