The area is open to the public, You have to enter the area through Rabbit Creek Road. Doing so takes you down to the hiking trail head as well as the boat launch. The local community has made some improvements to the trail and it is now a full loop, not an out and back. Much of the trail is well inland from the lake so you can't see the lake the whole time but you do get regular views of the small but very pretty lake, The trail is only a few miles long so I would call it a fairly short and easy hike, but a nice one. Well worth a stop if you are looking for an easy and pretty couple of hours.

Not open. This needs to be updated . A lumber company has bought out the entire area and it’s closed to backpackers.

I first went to Troy in 1973 to work for the Forest Service and called it home until I relocated to the Carson City/Lake Tahoe area in 1989. If it's an outdoor activity, you can do it here.
