We'll start the hike at Buckland Station south of Silver Springs. We'll hike east along the Carson River, hopefully the cottonwoods will be in full color after this cold snap. We'll then head south across the desert and a small playa to meet the Pony Express/American Discovery Trail and loop back to the Station. Approximately 10 miles, level ground. $1.00 State Park walk-in fee. Well behaved dogs welcome.
