Great trail at 9 am in May-saw several different wild flowers and gorgeous views of Reno. After the initial climb-the city noises fade away and there is a refreshing channel of water passing through. Not too many people on trail-definitely bring water and food next time!

I hiked this trail twice last week. May 15 and May 16. The first part of the trail is an incline of about 380 feet. Once you reach the Steamboat Ditch road the hike is easy. The views are great. I also really enjoyed all the wild flowers. Lots of variety in flowers.

Elevation change early on but then settles into a nice wide easy trail.

Absolutely beautiful!! There are a ton of side trails you can take and just walk around. It could be a hike or walk depending on trail and how far you go. There is water for the dogs to get into. Lots of dogs off leash which is fine as long as they don't run up on your kid or dog. There are foxtails in this area so I would make sure to check your dog afterwards if you go. No shade so this trail is good for an overcast day. Tons of wildflowers.

Nice hike now that the water is flowing! The trail does get quite busy but there are lots of routes you can take. It’s great for dogs. No shade but at least there is water to cool off.

This is my favorite hike in the foothills! It’s close to town and can be done in 90 minutes... plus you get away from the highway noise! I recommend this trail highly!!!

If you take the trail to the right you will be able to take it to the road then head right again when on the dirt road and circle back to the river and park. A bit windy.

Great trail! Moderate amount of people out but everyone was kind and practicing social distancing. Steep switchbacks from the bottom of the parking lot/river area to the top. Not a lot of shade. Many connecting trails that offshoot and continue on. My dog and I did experience a rattlesnake on the trail so beware!

Pretty high trafficked trail but one of my favorites for a number of reasons. Firstly it's a great beginner trail, once you get that small elevation part out of the way it's nearly flat up top; secondly once you get up to the top, it's nothing but nice scenery from there; lastly this trail branches a lot, you can either keep it easy or go increase the difficulty to a grueling uphill or/and distance bulker. I guess my only complaints: It's a high traffic trail, everyone and their grandma will be there during the day- from cyclist to a rare occasion off roader; once it gets icey and snowy, it's still doable but challenging; LEASH YOUR DOGS: There's a lot of wildlife! I've encountered Rattlesnakes here 3-4 times, the canal gets disgusting with stagnant water- riddled with parasites, I've encountered a mountain lion here once.. if you have a big dog, a mountain lion will think twice but if you have a small dog running around unleashed that's another story. FINALLY: HOLY SH*T once the snow melts it is EXTREMELY MUDDY. If you plan on doing this trail during these times, get ready to be walking in cement shoes TRAIL RUNNER POV: Great beginner trail. Easy going
