Come and try out a trail run! This is a great loop with 2 distance options: 2.5 or 5 mile route that runs along the Carson River. The terrain is mostly flat. You can choose to do the 5 mile loop or the shorter loop which is 2.5 miles. There are a few obstacles to get over along the trail, but for the most part, the trail is good to go. This is a perfect trail for beginning trail running. The trail does not allow dogs, so just wanted to give you all a head's up about that. Please make a comment letting me know what loop you plan on doing so I have an idea of who will be running what.
Directions to the trail head:
1. Take Hwy 395 North if you are coming from Gardnerville/Minden area or take it South if you are coming from Carson City area.
2. Turn on Stephanie Way
3. Turn left on Heybourne Road
4. Go about 1/2 mile down the road and you will see a small sign on the left hand side that directs you to the trail head.
5. Go down to the end of the road and park anywhere along the side of the road. You will see the entrance to the trail head.
"To get to the finish line, you'll have to try lots of different paths."
