Pleasant, easy walk. This late in the year, the trees are bare.

Great hike, no shade. My pup loves to find water and there is plenty of it.

Neat to check out if you’re in the area! Mostly no shade, and parts can be pretty steep but there are different routes to take to swap out some steep segments for switchbacks. Fun to take a picture at the Nevada “N”!

Great little hike with lots of trails to go on. We went along the creek and it had nice shade but definitely frequented by people.

nice little trail with a few different options. going all the way up to the N is moderate to difficult I would say. the rest is pretty leisurely.

Nice little walk to stretch our legs after a long drive from Northern Cali. Spent all week hiking the Redwoods and being cooped up in the car all day left us tight. This was just what we needed to welcome us back home.

Good trail for all levels of hiking. There are some spurs for other trails that connect, but signs are pretty clear. There’s a little water in a couple areas, but not too much.

I havent hiked since I moved to Reno 5 years ago. I'm pretty out of shape and I was able to do the trail without too much difficulty. A lot of wildlife, not much shade and a lot of people with dogs and bikes.

Great trail but many spurs so it can be a bit confusing but no matter it was a lot of fun on a beautiful day. The canyon itself was beautiful and many wildflowers.

I got side tracked and followed other trails but I would circle back to get to the ‘N’. All trails that combine to this one are also nice. Explore and venture off, great time. I also am just discovering there is a record option on this app, I use my Apple Watch to track. I usually see a handful of reviews saying the record options isn’t as accurate, but just know this trail is a nice workout either way!

The creek is full with nice views. Great place to explore. lots of trial options. Don't be afraid of getting lost. I'm going to come back and try it with my mountain bike.

Easy trail for a relaxing day when you want to get outdoors!
