Not a very pretty hike

I hike this trail quite often as it is close to home. Gives a great panoramic view of the valley and is especially nice as dusk.

Nice trail but difficult to maintain. Several trails branch, sending you in the wrong direction

This is the kind of trail that makes this app great! I've driven past this road thousands of times, but never driven down, looked at this hill more times yet, but never knew that there were trails on it. Nice open space that is easy to access, but city sounds are very distant. The trail is rocky as the natural topography. Be sure to stop lots to enjoy the view as you'll need to watch your feet while moving!

A fun and relatively easy hike with nice views of the Truckee Meadows. Not a tree in the area so take lots of water if you do it in July!

Great vistas of Eastern Sierra Front and overall is a cool Interpretive trail. Better than I expected will return with my MTB. Area has a good vibe.

Luv running the trails at HV. Don't have to worry about others getting in your way, except for a mustang or two.

Kid friendly to an extent...very rocky. We have done 2 of the loops with a 4 and 6 year old. Very pretty and good view of various parts of the city. Nice facility to have a picnic after.

Easy walk although trails somewhat rocky. Nice views especially at the top of the bigger hill.

Nice relaxing walk. It's not very difficult but there can be a few points where the terrain gets a bit steep but the rocks help with footing. The view was amazing though, the endless fields were awesome!

The first trail we completed with out family of 3 boys, aged 2, 4 and 6. It was short and simple enough for them to tackle, also with some great views. I uploaded some photos of our two hikes there in January 2014.

Some really great views of Reno and the Sierra Nevada's.

Don't follow the All Trails map because it sent us to private property- no trespassing.

Nice wild flowers and rocky paths. No shady trees though, make sure you wear sunscreen.

Don't follow the all trails map. The trailhead is on Alexander Lake Rd, not Rio Pico. Fun place with lots of paths

The most challenging trail is directly across the road from the newly paved parking lot. Hike to the top of Rattlesnake mountain for the best views within the Reno Valley.

Hiked this everyday when I was pregnant with Megan.

Trails are nice if you don't want a long hike. There isn't any shade and it gets really hot out there later in the day-also need to watch out for rattle snakes along the trail. They do have some educational panels along the different loops which might be fun for kids.
