trail from the reservoir up to summit lake and onwards to the Carson River is great and well maintained singletrack. from them on be prepared to get tons of scratches as the trail mostly disappears till the switchbacks up out of the canyon. The climb out is grueling and the trail is overgrown... once out of the canyon I lost the trail and ended on a forest road that took me to the airstrip...... tried to follow a dirt road back to my car but that also disappeared. fun times but not ideal for running
