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 hike for getting back in to the swing of things. My dog enjoyed it. I imagine in the summer there isn’t enough shade to bring a dog though.

It is a lot of FUN!! We have been on December 26th 2017. There was not snow so part of the trail was good. We had to stop at certain point because there was a big hole full of ice. I have a truck so i stopped. I saw Jeep and UTV going without any problem. Definitely during other seasons is perfect!
We had a lot of fun!!!

Not much snow on the trail until you get to the crest. From there to the pond there's a good bit of snow. The trail is pretty crusted, so no need for snow shoes.

I had issues with the altitude here. Otherwise it is a nice wide open area good for snowshoe or cross country skiing.

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.

recommend for sure

Such a fun, not well known, trail! Very good for running and hiking.

Really great hike especially on a snowy day. Highly recommend it but you might need chains to drive up to the trailhead

First time hiking here. Does need to be marked a little better. Third time hiking overall. I got lost.

Very scenic, easy trail. Good for a family outing.

easy walk with the family... beautiful scenery.

The hike was actually 10.36 miles but it was great. Scenic. Not well marked.

Very enjoyable

This was one of the most rigorous hikes I have ever done. The second mile, straight up the mountain, you basically create your own trail. The views are great and you'll more than likely be the only one going this route. If you want a hike where you need to dig deep and seriously challenge yourself, this is the one.

Good leg workout. wouldn't recommend for young kids. lots of narrow trails with drop offs.

Awesome trail for most anybody. Great time!
