We parked at the reservoir and took the trail to the left off the dirt road for a nicer hike then just following the dirt road had to offer. It was very cold down in the canyon as we followed the creek for the first mile. We only passed one mountain biker as we went midweek. Very scenic views and we had the perfect day for high visibility. The terrain was nice as we went from a canyon creek, mountain views, and tree lines. We decided to make this trail a loop instead of an out and back. At the end of the trail we followed the washed out road down to Canyon Creek Road and got a ride back to the water tower. Overall total today was 10.2 miles.

This is one of my go to hikes in Carson!
Lovely views of Carson, Washoe and Gardnerville when you get to the tops of the mountain
Just watch out for mountain bikers as this is a mountain biking/hiking trail
