Nice little partial loop hike up through Galena forest and down into Brown's Creek Canyon. Well maintained and marked trail.

I love this shaded trail. There weren't many people on it with us. The views of the city and Washoe Valley are great.

Did this trail last summer and just now found it on alltrails. Great hike with a little bit of everything. beware the bikers though.

This route can be used for hiking, biking, and horses. Probably best route use is hiking. A lot of large rocks on the uphill portions of the trail, impeding forward momentum for biking. Fairly narrow trail in places with some loose sandy edges make this a bit risky for horses as well.
