I enjoy this area quite a bit. It's tough to compete with Tahoe trails, but this area does quite well. You will see other people, but not crowds. I was also able to see a handful of deer and a bear. It was a great day!

Easy to get to. Great views and love the smell of the forest.

The road into Dog Valley really doesn't have the breath taking views. It does have a sign at the beginning that tells of the costs associated with one of the forest fires. It is somewhat interesting. I chose to make a loop out of this trail that did end up with a bunch of great views of Truckee and Reno. Had a great time until my GPS locked up. Even then really enjoyed the flowers. The trail at the bottom of the loop disappeared and I ended up heading off cross country for about 200 yards. Had a great time, despite the weather!

The main trail was a pretty easy dirt road but we found some more difficult and super amazing trails that branched off. Main road is super easy for beginners but if you explore some of the unmapped areas you can find difficult routes and amazing spots.

This is actually a dirt/gravel road open to vehicles, not a hiking trail. Still, Henness Pass (the turnaround spot) has some beautiful views over the valley below. There are also plenty of side roads (some open to vehicles, some not) if you want to do more exploration

(Verdi to Summit 1) is a great "I have to get out of here" drive to forest and mountains. Good mountain biking in Dog Valley. Once to Summit one its plenty to hike, ride and enjoy. Road can be treacherous and blow outs are common. Go prepared. The mud hole at the parking area had pallets burned over it so it has nails and staples in the mud.
