From our campsite in Water Canyon the trail heads off to the overlook. Easy hike with a reward at the end with the vast view of the Winnemucca Valley.

This is a nice and easy trail with little elevation gain. Perfect for kids! For the short mileage, you are rewarded with great views of the Winnemucca Valley. You can see the South Jackson Range, Winnemucca mountain, and the Santa Rosa Range from here. This is also an awesome spot to sit and watch the sunset. There are two benches at the end, along with an information sign about Water Canyon.
