Fun trail, people were very considerate for horses, some parts get rocky, some creek crossings, first bridge at the bottom is narrow, second bridge was fine, trail was very clearly marked, look out for the two abandoned cars which were neat, very pretty with the fall leaves, I will be coming back!

The map doesn’t actually take you to the beginning of the trail. With some effort and pinpointing the actual spot I found the trail around the block. Found that there are other trails that branch off and plan to explore in the future. Nice paved trail with several gravel trails that can be taken off the main path. Peaceful and quiet. I would walk it again. Better than walking the Sparks Marina.

Beautiful fall hike, with nice views up the canyon, reasonably well-maintained trail with some rocky scramble, and surprisingly full creek. The aspen and other trees are changing, so some nice color now that will get better in the next couple of weeks!

A main walk through.

Easy trail for dogs and kids. Not overly busy on a Saturday, but did see other people hiking and biking. Only downside is lots of dog poop..ugh... Lots of small trails that you can take to get down to the waters edge, which was really peaceful. I could see it getting really muddy after rain. Great for a fall stroll.

Nice relaxing trail. No big inclines or declines. Close to houses/property lines at some points but the rest of the hike outweighed that. Followed the creek for part of the hike and has little areas right off the trail to sit and enough it. Shady at spots but overall not shaded. Beautiful this time of year.

Not a bad hike close to town. Some sections in the eastern portion along the creek had swarms of bees, but we just walked through without stopping and didn’t get stung or chased by the insects. Trail is a bit hard to follow the route outlined on the app as the signage changes from Keystone Canyon to Poedunk and another trail name in the northern and western portions, but still a nice route as mapped here! Great views down the canyons from the top. No shade, but nice now this time of year and trail wasn’t very busy feeling even though the parking lot was full.

I chose to hike to Relay Peak first. Pleasant hike up to Relay Peak. Nice trail/road that was well-defined and easy to walk. There were a few patches of snow, some water for dogs, and some shade. There were still a fair number of butterflies around 9000' near water. Aside from butterflies, I don't think I saw any bugs! Once on Relay Peak, it was extremely windy. GREAT VIEWS! The hike over to Mt. Houghton from Relay Peak was also very windy, but the trails were in good condition. The decent into the canyon was not a challenging hike. However, there were a couple of spots where the trail was narrow with loose soil, and some small patches of snow...but not bad at all!! LOTS of deer. Three huge Mule Deer Bucks ran up the canyon and a herd of about 6 does were farther down the canyon by the meadow. Saw many Gray Jays and Ravens, Juncos and Finch-like birds. My dog found a whole deer leg striped to the bone. Also, in the canyon decending from Mt. Houghton, I really thought I heard a 'meow'. All-in-all, a great hike. It took me about 6 hours to bag both peaks, with a stop for lunch, several snack stops and breaks.

This was my first visit so I kept the All Trails app going to assure the trail, as there are various other merging trails. As others have described, there are steep ascents and descents with loose gravel. I do not mind going up with loose gravel but coming down, I felt my shoe tread was not sufficient. Definitely recommend poles on the descent. Loved the views of the Reno valley and the back valley. I did not mind the lack of shade as the fall weather was wonderful. No horse sightings.

Amazing views. Challenging terrain. watch your step

Nice climb and rewarding downhill

very easy going trail, some pretty colors on the leaves in October. Most of the trail is unshaded till you get to the upper Thomas Creek trail. Heavily trafficked, and dog friendly.

I took my toddler on this trail to do some exploring and wandering. Overall it was fine, some parts of the trail were very narrow and with thorny bushes. We passed some hikers with their friendly dogs and one mountain biker. There was a lot to see and gather for my little one. I try to incorporate nature play every time we are “hiking”. Regardless of how far we get I would come back with my kids but I enjoy exploring new trails every time we go out.

beautiful at this time of year!

This was a gorgeous hike for a cool fall day with some cloud cover. I wouldn't try it in summer, as a heat wimp. I took my dog and he went bananas he had so much fun. We saw about a dozen others over the course of 3 1/2 hours, everyone was friendly and all the dogs were too. He's young so we didn't make it to the end, but we'll try again for sure. Definitely bring snacks, water, sunglasses, and really good hiking boots as there's a few really rocky parts and a couple spots where you'll hop over water.

Great fun and challenging! Daniel Costa-Roberts gave an excellent description, but most of the time there is not room to turn around, you would have to back up for a while until turn around is possible. We took our 1991 Jeep YJ with 6" lift and 33" Wrangler tires, and we felt very prepared, but still some breath catching moments. Incredible views along the way and especially at the top :-)

Paved loop trail. Great for bird watching and beginners. You can also see wild horses on the trail some days. (Which means some horse poop) I walk this trail almost daily. Great views of Mt Rose. The west side of the loop is a sidewalk on veterans pkwy then meets back up to the trail head. There is a playground located at the north side of the trail with a parking lot. Very little shade on the trail, but there are rest stops with benches and also dog poop bags and trash cans. (Also alot of people don’t pick up their dog poop, so watch out for it too) There are a few people that live along the trail on the east side of the loop where they have little buckets of dog treats they put out for the neighbors that walk the trail, also a big bowl of water for the dogs.

Took our Cub Scout Pack on this hike today. With the rain / snow from the previous day, the mud on the trail stuck to out shoes. As things heated up, the mud disappeared. Great hike for the kids. Our 6 year old daughter had no issues, and we had close to 40 people in our group.
