After maybe a quarter-mile the trail splits up hill to the left. However, private property, Road closed ahead, keep out sign is posted. This is the direction all trails map shows to go but I will not trust pass where signs are posted keep out. Need update this trail.

Worth the hike if you can make it past the first mile of steep, rocky terrain. Also helps to have a map (or a map app) because there are a lot of trails and none of them are marked.

This is a great trail with easy access from the Tahoe/Pyramid Bike Way, however It is frequented by ATV use. The highlight beyond the nice scenery of the Carson and Verdi Range of the Sierra is the abandoned boy scout camp on the way to a second dry lake and Cone Peak. Unfortunately the camp has been brutally vandalized and a lot of trash thrown in Fuller lake. Its an enjoyable local hike with unique features, the only downside is the proximity to I-80.
