It was a great trail. We were warned by some people walking out that they saw a bear. Just keep a look out. We did not see it.

Good trail with a nice creek and and Aspen groves near the end at Mt Rose Highway. A lot of housing around the trail is a downside. Would be a blast on a bike.

Tried to complete this, this last weekend (25-26FEB) . It def still covered in snow. The first 1.5 miles is low enought to stomp through but is currently under 3+ feet of snow near the top 1/3 of the trail. The creek is quite beautiful right now. It's going to be a mini white water rapids in the spring. Going to hike it through to upper Galena once it thaws.
