One of my go to trails. Not fun when it's muddy though.

Great trail that is close to town. Not many people on there until you get around to the keystone side so that was nice.

Very easy and enjoyable. The hill to the big N is steep but offers a great view.

Great loop trail. Go early - no shade. Bring water as it gets hot in places. A few places are a bit rocky for running so wear stable shoes. Well marked until you get to the upper part of the trail.

Great trail that links up with other trails in the area. Park at the sports complex and start with the interpretive nature trail to the left, there are baby great horned owls. For Evans Canyon keep left in the beginning to ensure you’re on the right trail. I kept finding myself on the Miner’s trail. They’re all great and connect with each other tho so don’t be afraid to take a wrong turn!

Great views of Reno! String it together with Poedunk instead of Keystone Canyon for something a little more challenging.

Had a blast! Trail was much dryer than a week ago. Fun watching a team of mountain bikers training.

A great hike on a 60 degree day in late January. Many trails branch off the main one shown here, so important you keep app available if you want to be 100% sure. Some of the trails are named differently on the trail than the app, but for the most part, you don’t lose service.

Very nice moderate hike that’s very easy to get to. Lots of hikers on the weekend but lots of room for everyone. Take the side trip the the University of Nevada ‘N’ for a great view of the Valley.

Breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys. Very exposed to the sun, so bring lots of water and sunblock. We got to see some interesting critters along the trail.

Great trail right in our backyard. Take it up to the N.

Nice trail for days you don't feel like driving up to Tahoe!

beautiful trail. peaceful. I did it with baby on my back, relatively easy. crossing the water without getting wet, was the most challenging part.

This is my favorite trail to do on days where I don't have much time but just want to get outside for a while. After a lot of rain or snow melt, there's a pretty little creek that runs through the trail under the "N" and lots of greenery. It's a fun place to for little ones to explore and play around. I walk this trail probably once every couple weeks and I still love it.

nice loop trail. Beware, the trail by the creek has been washed out in a few spots. 2017, April

Other than that I enjoyed the walk and view of Reno

Not a bad hike to begin the season. Starting at the ball fields, about 0.2 - 0.4 miles before you hit Table Run, the trails split to about a half a dozen or so with no markers, so it's easy to choose the wrong trail. Keep your GPS or a good topo trail map on you. The creek is full, not surprising for the winter we've had. You have to pick your way through the creek to find viable trails before the main trail picks up again when you've connected to Keystone Canyon. Very little shade.

Fun trail for mountain biking, relatively easy for beginners to get the feel for mountain biking can get harder at parts.

I took the upper route, just to get a glimpse of what it would take to make it Peavine. So I headed up North and gradually came out in the 41664 trail area and hitched a ride back to my car.
