Description

This moderate trail has beautiful views of the Carson Range and Washoe Valley. This trail connects to a short Lookout Loop trail at the top of the ridge with a bench to enjoy the views. This trail can be used to access the Ballardini Ranch - Timberline Connector or as an add-on for the Lower Loop for runners looking for a longer outing or to add on some mileage.
