This is accessible all year. Bike, hike, walk in spring, summer, or fall. Snowshoe or cross country ski in winter. Lots of bird life; coyote and bear sightings as well. This trail in Washoe Meadows State Park is treasure right in our backyards and it is threatened by a golf course expansion project.

This hike is a secret little treasure during late fall or spring when all other trails are hard to explore. This trail is in a state park that happens to be free! Yes , that's right a free state park. A nice meadow with the upper truckee river meandering through it. Bears tend to leasurly stroll through this area. Great place for dogs to run.
