Gorgeous views

Loved the soft dirt, gorgeous, and at the end there was a few ponds. Would love to see what this would be like in April.

Dunes are fun and there is a good mix between crawling and sand. Some fun waterfalls to climb as well.

This place is great! The white sand surprised me!

Steep trail, but the recent rain kept the gravel and small rocks from being as loose and slippery as they are in the summer. Ran into just four other people, though I got a late start because I went after work. Gorgeous fall hiking weather!

great Trail ,,be on the lookout for a lost dog Shepherd mix orange training collar last seen 11/14 Wednesday 3 p.m.

on Natural Arch

18 days ago

This walk is tougher than you think as you simply walk along the riverbed the whole time so walking in sand. Only saw 1 natural bridge as did not go all the way as after 2 hours one way we were tired. Also the main arch has collapsed. Limited parking at trailhead only enough for 4/5 cars on side of road area.

Nice short trail takes around 30 mins, petroglyphs on the rock, which is cool. Toilets are trailhead. Fairly trafficked even in November.

Easy out and back with nice views.

Excellent fall hike! We came in mid-October and even though locals on the trail were sighing that it was the tail end of colors, we thought we were inside a treasure trove!

Pro tip: You can make this trail a loop by taking hiking trail to the lake and biking trail back (or vice versa)
Pro tip 2: The colors are more beautiful along the biking trail

Relatively steep at the beginning but easy of after about a mile. Well shaded by trees so good for summer. The waterfall is a nice end point. Hiked it yesterday. The waterfall had a surprising flow considering that there has been no measurable rain for over 100 days.

* parking locked up for the season when we went.(11_12_18).hard to find parking nearby as there are lots of "no parking" signs posted along roadside.
*lower part of trail was great.
* creek water for the dogs.
* where trail splits off- we initially missed this and hiked a couple miles before realizing we had missed our line.
* backtracked to the split and this portion has been discouraged for hikers by logs, rocks, etc a lot along the way to the lake. Not sure why?
*it was a great hike nevertheless- many beautiful views. The lake was stunning , as always. We were the only people on this trail.
*had a wonderful time, despite the unknown reason for the "upper" trail being discouraged.

Nice easy hike. No shade until you reach the gazebo at the top.
Pretty views of Washoe Valley.

Quick easy hike. Pretty little water fall. took us longer to drive from reno then it did to actually do the hike.

The worst hike(walk) I’ve done so far.. walking on super soft sand pretty much the whole way.. great views but after a while it all looked the same and got boring.. got to the end and no natural bridge standing,, so was pointless to go there!! I would give a -5 starts if could!!

awesome easy and great pics.

i'm in love with this trail. came in mid October, beautiful Aspen trees changing color, slow and steady climb up with short steep down to lake so after long uphill climb the first part of the return was challenging but then the rest of the 10 mile hike was all downhill with a little bit of flat so easy to power through. cant wait to do again next fall!

This is a great little trail in an equally great location. Close to town, this one connects to many other hikes, such as Eagle Ridge and the Tahoe Rim Trail (if you’re up for some serious elevation gain). I don’t enjoy the parking for the trailhead, which requires you to walk along a road that borders private homes and property, but once you are on the trail you get beautiful views of the Carson Valley. We hiked it today with my four year old, and he did great, so personally I’d rate this one as easy! Beautiful colors and crisp fall weather at this time of year, but be prepared for early shadows and sunset on this trail since it right on the east facing side of the mountain.

Great hike! We took a few breaks to catch our breath since we weren’t used to the elevation, but overall not bad at all. Definitely recommend!

Small park. Not much here.. can pet the animals running around
