Description

I rund the first 2 miles of this. Very easy trail. In the fall, the brush is gorgeous. The vistas of Carson Valley are breathtaking and you get a very expansive view of the Eastern Sierras. So this is a 10.

But the trail goes through a lot of private property and alongside fences with signs posting to keep out, which detracted from the run. The trail through the forest is only so, so, nothing great.

Jobs Peak Trail. About 1-2 miles in. The beauty if this trail is in the vistas of Carson Valley and views of the  Eastern Sierras.  Go on a day with cumulous clouds in the sky. The desert brush is gorgeous too.
