Amazing trail!! I will definitely do this one again and again!!

Short flat trail. Too urban and definitely not a moderate trail, more on the easy side.

Did this hike while visiting for my sons graduation. Beautiful trail. But go early. The heat kicks up in the afternoon and a lot of foot traffic going back up to the summit later in the morning.

The waterfall was worth the incline trek! ☺️

Did the Jones Creek to Church's Pond on Sunday, May 14th. Still some snow from the turn off of the main trail to the pond and the pond is still frozen, but still a great hike with creek flows at such a high level the scenery is amazing.
Today, Saturday May 20th, we hiked the Jones-Whites Loop (Clockwise). There is still a substantial amount of snow on top between the turn to Church's Pond and the first Whites Creek crossing, so the hike was pretty challenging with the added snow trekking! Still an awesome hike! It took a little over 5 hours as compared to around 4 typically.

Really enjoyed this hike. the mile after you cross the creek is really rocky so it was a little slow going coming down... But there were Lots of pretty flowers, even more scurrying lizards.

The waterfall and stream are as beautiful and full as ever! When crossing the stream the first time, take the smaller/highest trail from the parking lot and look for a set of steps on the right a ways back. There is a log, and another set of steps. Don't get turned away by following the big trail from the parking lot and seeing that the log that used to be there is washed away! You can also take a left on the big trail and follow it down until you see a concrete dam and cross there.

Truckee River, Fall colors, 3 Great parks, Fishing, Hub Coffee, Downtown Reno. An A+ Ride or Walk.

Nice mini after work hike , I included the Ranch Loop in my walk as it is not a long trail. Would have good urban fall color opportunities and the flume portion is pretty cool. Gets high enough for a few nice views of Reno. Good morning/evening hike. North portion could use some TLC.

Great vistas of Eastern Sierra Front and overall is a cool Interpretive trail. Better than I expected will return with my MTB. Area has a good vibe.

It's a nice trail for a cool day with little to no wind. There are sweeping views, challenging single track, water about half the trail. Downside is that it's VERY rocky, no shade and no wind protection.
