Let's hike this again, on the weekend. Galena Creek National Recreation Area (http://www.galenacreekvisitorcenter.org/area-trails.html) offers many trails of various lengths, elevations and altitudes. One of our favorite moderately-paced walks is Upper White's Creek to Dry Pond and back (approx. 2 miles each way= 4 Round Trip). Some elevation gain is involved, rising from approx. 6200 to 6700 ft. However, this scenic hike will take a leisurely pace with breaks. Take Mt Rose Hwy (US 431) west from I-580, to Timberline Road (well-signed). Turn right (north) to the road on your left for White's Creek Trailhead.
