One of the best hikes on the Reno side of Mt. Rose. 75% heavily wooded, great shade. Sound of rushing water for 90% of the hike. Both Whites Creek and Thomas creek run year round even in drought conditions. Great views of Carson Valley, Washoe Lake and Mt. Rose Wilderness.

Well marked trails. Creeks still running. Lots of shade on a hot day. Good multi-purpose trail: horses, mountain biking, dogs, and trail running/hiking. The only drawback was the part of the loop on the road -the rest of it was nice.

Good trail with an easy incline. Most of the hike is shaded which was nice.

Dry Pond is not so dry! Great trail, plenty of shade, and no crazy creek crossings.
