HikingGreat!

Trail was great. Few icy spots but doable in hiking shoes. I downloaded the map on app as there are lots of trails. Hardly anyone out on trail. Loads of wildhorses.

Stunning views! There is a chunk where my snow spikes really helped to toss on quick. However giving it 4 because I was over halfway down and the trail became very hard to locate so I turned around because it was getting late. Would like to try and finish some time!

HikingGreat!

If you follow google maps to the trail head, keep driving, it's a bit down the road. There are LOTS of intertwining trails. Keep the All Trails app open, it really helps. The ascent was intense my app says it was like 96 flights of stairs! It was gloriously difficult, making the accomplishment all the more satisfying! Beautiful views, especially the view of Mount Rose in the distance, that was breathtaking! (Mt. Rose, looks like a woman laying on her back with her face to the sky- a lovely vision) 4 stars because the trail system is not well marked.

Wasted time and energy finding the trail. Walked a mile to and from the parking lot to little quaint park and then hiking up to the real start of the trail. Very steep and sandy treks. You need tread on shoes or something because I almost slipped about 30 times on my hike, but luckily caught myself. No sign or anything but luckily had service to see if I was staying on the trail. Got really tired of the steep sandy hills and almost having heart attacks. Took a trail detour, but that was a mistake. Walking along the steep side of a mountain with a sandy trail. Then getting back down was most steep sandy hills. The exercise and views were amazing, but I need better shoes next time, if I go back. I was cursing the entire way and was mad half the time because of almost slipping all the time. lol

This area is great for the panoramas of Reno, there is a decent amount of elevation in a short amount of time so it's a good workout and it's closeby. There's lots of interesting landscape to loose yourself in, but you will be able to hear traffic most of the way. I've hiked in this area before, so the steep downhill with loose dirt wasn't a surprise. I would not attempt this trail without walking poles. I feel that without them I would have slipped numerous times. The area isn't in my top 10, but I do visit a couple times a year.

Poles a must with good support shoes., so many steep uphills, unmarked trail signs mistaking for animal trails. Return trail very skinny on slopes. Saw no one on our hike. Been there not going back.

I agree with another hiker who mentioned rather steep sections of this trail. Hiking poles are a must!

Great views and never crowded because the beginning and end ate treacherous. I could not do this at all without poles, and it is slow going. Also some opportunities to venture off trail in the NE section. No water and little shade.

I didn’t expect to enjoy this hike as much as I did. I broke off from the trail went off on my own route. I had my hiking poles with me, they were much needed. I recommend you have good hiking boots. This trail is very steep that’s if you go off on your own little journey and come back to the trail. Take a look at my map. If you take my route you’ll see what I’m talking about.
