these were very generous ratings.... yes there was beautiful scenery (Oct 23) but the trail ended very anticlimacticly by butting up with another trail at a particularly drab location. I'd probably try to incorporate it into a loop next time.

Did this as a loop trail from Thomas creek trailhead, up over Dry Pond then down to Whites Creek trailhead (2 cars). About 5 miles. Probably another mile to complete loop. Good steady climb to dry pond, which was a dry, low swail of dry grasses. Nice views of Slide Mtn (Mt. Rose ski area). Late summer and late in day. Plenty of shade. Lower areas follow near the creeks for a ways. The drop into Whites is south aspect and more exposed. Likely hot earlier in day. Saw lots of mountain bikes (high school team) and some hikers and dogs. About two hours without rush. Brought out of town guests who gushed about how pretty the hike was. Lucky to have this so close to town.

Excellent trail run! The pond is a great place to chill out and hydrate before heading back. Excellent trail so close to Reno where you can get into the trees.

I love this trail. This year there is still water and it is nice and shady during the day. Be careful of ticks.
