Beautiful hike through the Ward Creek loop. The trail markings are a little thin the deeper one gets, which makes the trail a 3-star vs a 4-star. Pretty shaded areas and some nice wild flowers, along with a fun downhill stretch on the TRT into the Granlibakken ropes/zip line course. The Truckee River portion is short, but offers a few great spots for jumping in to take a swim!
