winter day in january:
*trail is muddy, lots of water, sloppy and great fun.
*water all along the trail, so the dogs had a great time.
*pretty picturesque in places.
*very close to reno, for a quick getaway.
*quite a few other trail tangents to explore while you're there_to make the route shorter or longer.
*always hear highway 80 in the distance.
*we saw a coyote on the trail in mid day, which was interesting.
*trail "Hole In The Wall" is along this trail, about mid way.
*not many people out here in this sort of weather/season_ though I understand it can be really really popular in the summer.

it's a hard one for sure it's all uphill on loose rocks but the view is worth the hike and coming back down u would think it's easy going down hill but it's not have to be slow and careful because of all the rocks hiking sticks are very helpful in this hike good workout for sure

Very easy. Could be longer. Kind of windy during January.

The hike was easy at first as long as you take the path. We decided to take different route from the path and went of course. We found lots of water trail coming from the creek. Did not really see the waterfall.

To say this was a BEAutiful hike would be an understatement...this was the best day of my life! So much work snowshoeing up but so worth the view and the proposal at the pond ❤️

End of day crazy 8 loops. Kind of full from large lunch but got some exercise in.

Nice little family hike with great views.

well maintained trail system

Its a pretty chill hike and you can see Lake Mead as you go on the trail. The trail is pretty flat, and there are some things to read on about the history of the trail.

In town for the weekend and wanted an afternoon out of city run. This trail starts at the edge of the city and goes off into the red desert. Most of the beginning is following trails carved by vehicles. Weirdly mushy and satisfying. The trail carves it’s way around a few peaks before finally reaching the end. You’re rewarded with a view of the city and where you began. It is quite rocky, so you won’t be flying back down unless you’re part goat. Would love to come back when it’s dark

Great hike all the way up, nice and challenging at the end. best part is the 360 view at the peak, incredible! cool fort and flag up there too :) happy hiking!

As a 250lb man, this was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. The hike took 5 hours round trip with about 30 minutes at the summit. We reached the summit at night; The view was good, but not worth the effort. The extremely steep incline makes coming down very hard on your body such as your joints, feet, and legs.

This is great if your on a lunch break and need a lite hike. It’s not the most challenging trail that I’ve been on, but there are a lot of bunnies so that’s a plus.

nothing too challenging very nice trail enjoyed the sandy wash at the end

freaking LOVED this trail! so beautiful and worth the entire hike!

Did this on Jan 4, 2019. Portions of the trail are not super well marked and you need to do some rock scrambling before seeing the next portion of the trail, so having the downloaded offline trail map was extremely helpful. Overall very scenic and interesting rocks and rock scrambling passages were fun.

I went Jan 12 @ 11:30am. It was a bit cloudy, no rain though. I'm not an experienced hiker and went solo.

Plenty of parking when I went, but I can see it being packed pretty quickly. I don't know if I fell off the trail, but I was following it and eventually went up some boulders and got lost. I remember reading it's supposed to be 2-3 hours, took me 4 1/2 to get back to my car. I never found the waterfall, but got some great pictures. There were two people scaling the mountain which I thought was crazy, but you can see that they had the proper equipment and were experienced but really great to see. A bit of poop, nothing crazy though. Definitely has cactus everywhere. Not much wildlife, found a creek though. Ill try again to find this waterfall and maybe not get lost. It was very easy to navigate back to your car though because of the landscape.

A walk in the park with ponds and shade trees in the picnic areas. Stroller friendly, too.

Can you still get all the way to the summit in Jan (now)? Wondering if there is too much snow in the way?

snowshoeing

Went snowshoeing Sunday during the snow storm. It was beautiful and challenging. We were lucky there were some tracks from a previous person, otherwise we would not have been able to know where the trail went with all the snow.

I hiked this and several other trails alongside the highway down to the lake. There isn’t a ton of parking, so I just parked wherever and bushwhacked my own trail down to the path. It is very steep at the top, so be mindful of this, I had to crawl and use my hands to pull me up. There are stairs in a couple spots, so kudos to you if you park near them and use them.
I won’t say too much about the beach, I almost hate to say anything because it is a jewel. I was there by myself for over an hour. It was one of the better moments I’ve had in this life. Plenty of little bluffs and coves you can scramble and bushwhack to, I kept myself entertained between all the trails for a few hours.

Another hike that took place before this app?website was up and running. I loved this experience. it was great for higher elevation training since you stay well above 8 grand the entire time. I remember stunning views of Lake Tahoe, Washoe Valley and a glimmer of Reno. Well worth the effort!

the trail is unmarked, hard to find. Lots of scrambling up steep rocks and slippery rubble. I would not call this an easy hike.

Wasnt too bad.. the trail didn't have a name on the sign at the beginning, I did get lost a couple times because it forks and there's Rock Trails and dirt trails. But it was nice

Steep hike, worth it 100%, the view is amazing. One of my favorites.

Beautiful hike through the spine of the Ruby Mountains. Water can be scarce between Upper Furlong Lake and Overland Lake (about a 9-mile stretch). The southern half is more exposed to the sun for stretches and lower in elevation, which can get hot after the sun rises high enough in the late morning. Recommend binoculars as bighorn sheep can be seen at the high peaks.

Just the 90 minute hike I wanted today! Headed the wrong way to cross the “bridge” to get across the creek before I headed back the right way. There was only one trail and it was mostly packed dirt with some loose rocks at a couple points. I loved hearing the rushing creek as I hiked and after 15 minutes it was all mountains! A good workout, I was even able to run a little on the way down. It was well populated so I felt safe as I single 54 year old woman. Can’t wait to make it to the falls when I have more time.

Beautiful hike above the basins. Arc Dome is high enough to attract lightning. Start early.
