Really fun trail! Doesn't take too long before the sounds of the freeway are drowned out by the wind through the pine needles, sounds of the creek and the birds singing. Yes, there is a pretty good grade to climb, but you are going from Washoe Valley into the mountains. I didn't make it all the way too the lake, the snow covering the trail was knee high in a few spots and I was uncertain on which way the path went. Had a great time!

The idea is nice. There are grass and picnic tables. Bring a covering for the picnic table and watch where you step. There is goose poop EVERYWHERE! I read that they hose off the walkways, but when we visited a year ago, we literally had to hop around the poop. It doesn’t smell good. The peacocks and bunnies are cool though. There are a couple of ponds, but they are greenish and smelly. There is a little area for memorial for people who were murdered. It sounds weird, but that was actually a peaceful place and surprisingly not as much goose poop.

Nice hike!
Few runners and bikes but not overly packed with people.
Some snow and mud. Shoe chains helped in the few inches of snow on the ground.

A buddy of mine and I drove all through the night to get here and admittedly in the pitch dark I was worried that this trip was going to be a bust. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This place is unbelievably beautiful. We embarked on this journey in mid November. We both had good water proof shoes so we were prepared. We anticipated lots of snow and at some sections of the trail it got up to our shins ! It was 100% worth it. The view are to die for. Don’t forget water !

Great physical climb in the forest and perfect for a quick tough workout getaway and peaceful rest at the top. It took about 4.5 hours pushing through without breaking all the way up, which was tough, and relaxing an hour at the lake. It’s just hard to stack up with Galena, Rose, and the TRT so close by. Limited scenic views and a small lake, although they were nice. There was still snow on the trail and the lake was frozen when I went in early February so I’ll have to do it again in summer to see if it would be better. Be prepared to walk through 20 yards of calf deep creek water or thick brush right before the lake; at least this time of year. All in all it was a really nice hike and good alternative day hike to mix things up if you are a regular local day hiker.

Beautiful hike and perfect weather. Some ice going downhill as well as some mud but an overall great hike.

Hike was beautiful, icy on the far side but very manageable. The trail was pretty busy but everyone was very nice! Great views! At a steady pace can be done in less than 3 hours. We will do this hike again soon!

The nature signs posted by Washoe County Parks & Recreation appear written by a person with only a grade school level education.
Basic Writing 101, do not use the word “you,” and these signs repeatedly use the word “you.” Where was the editor?

Too much dog poop on the trail.

Very nice moderate trail. Steep enough to get the blood pumping but not so bad as needing to stop and catch my breath. Not sure about where it says the trail starts, but this time of year, the gate is closed so you'll have to park on Timberline or go further up to the parking lot. Neat pond at the top, not much water, but being right at the top of the ridge is interesting.

Great view the entire loop

Take your fishing pole! Easy hike along the Truckee. The trail continues quite a ways past the AllTrails terminas. Would be a 10 if it wasn’t or the I-80 sounds!

Nice close to town trail close to the Truckee River. You can hear the river the whole time on the trail and cross over with a cool bridge. Several other smaller bridges in the park. Only one spot with snow this time of year.

They have peacocks and bunny’s. Just saying....

About as easy as you can ask for. A nice workout if you push it.

Beautiful birds, bunnies, and peacocks call this park home. It was such am amazing experience!

Went on this hike during the first snow of the season. I was the first person on the trail that day (Started at 7:00AM) and the entire hike was very peaceful. It's a great little hike and is so close to Reno.

Not really my idea of a hiking trail. It's on the list; so....

A very easy, fun walk with not a lot of traffic during the week. Great for families.

Excellent trail! excellent sunrises!

love this walk on a summer morning! Wear your bug spray! Watch for the beavers.... enjoy the sunrise!!

Pretty view. Too much bird poop for us on the walking trails. Easy walk.

Not well maintained trails

Great hike, beautiful views and water rushing the majority of the time. Only downfall is the loop takes you onto asphalt to get back to the trailhead.
Great hike, even with the asphalt ending.

Going up the switchbacks and taking the time to stop and turn around to see the views offers a nice break. eating lunch at the dry pond is the perfect mid point of the hike.

it's just a nice nature park walk.
