Kid friendly. I didn’t realize that you basically walking next to a bunch of fancy houses. It was still nice but just not what I was expecting. We did not use snow shoes or grips and had some slipping but overall not bad for a winter hike.

A bit icy at points but most of it is dry and the weather was perfect.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful trail so close to Reno and Sparks. The smells from the pine needles and the sound of the creek were intoxicating on a chilly afternoon. Decent amount of snow towards the end of the trail was also a bonus.

It’s a nice walk along the stream. It’s lined with homes and passes a golf course. Still nice.

Great trail especially if you have dogs. Lots of shade and you consistently see the creek throughout the hike. Will definitely be coming back to this trail.
