There is quite a bit of elevation gain with this hike so I would really say this is more towards moderate than easy. Very well maintained trail, although the end just blends into the Sierra Canyon trail so keep going if you want! You will probably run into mountain bikers and a few other hikers. Great views of the valley and the 2nd half is shaded but the trail overall can be a little warm in the summer months so go early.

This is a great trail for trail running or hiking with children. It mainly contours the mountain above Foothill Road and offers great views of the Carson Valley. My kids love running and playing on the trail because it is an undulating single track that goes in and out of trees. There is one creek crossing and a really neat little stand of trees that the trail weaves through. About 1.5 miles in the trail switchbacks up a ridgeline and it's pretty steep. After that, it's all downhill if you do the loop to the Sierra Canyon trailhead.

Easy trail. interesting change in ecosystems once we hit the tree line. Great view of the Valley. Trailhead different than what alltrails indicated. Approximately 1.25 miles south of the Junction of Kingsbury Grade

Lots of options in this area. This particular trail is better suited for hiking and mountain bikes. Runners might have difficulty with the small rocks. Beautiful with good amount of shade and great views.

Liked the fact there was multiple spots with water. the end of the hike was a little uphill but otherwise very good scenic route

This trail was great! I'm not sure if I'd label it as easy, only due to the steep incline; however, it was still enjoyable nonetheless. The view is phenomenal!
