Description

To get to the trail from Hwy 431 (Mt Rose Highway), turn onto Joy Lake Road. Drive approximately 1.5-1.6 miles down Joy Lake Road and a small parking area will be on your right. The trail begins across the street. This is a nice run that is moderately trafficked and is getting more popular. Runners will enjoy a nice stream, good views, fall colors, or wildflowers depending on the season.
