Mixed feelings about this trail. It does run parallel to the freeway, so most of the way you are listening to road noise and a few semi's using their Jake Brake. There is a spot about a mile from the trail head that water is over the trail as of the review date. I was able to make it around by contending with a very muddy swamp and a shallower part of the stream.

This trail is through the McCarran Ranch Preserve and is also part of the Tahoe to Pyramid Trail. As such, it is very well marked and for the most part very wide. There are also signs along the way detailing the rerouting of the river and the reason for it.
