First time doing the entire loop. Currently just a little bit of ice still up there. I wish we brought some poles just to help us out a bit. Absolutely beautiful.

Lake is beautiful, also went up to the lookout where you can see both tahoe and marlette. The lake trail was a nice hike. Hobart road up to the lookout was pretty much straight up and kinda brutal but it was a great view. Took the road out and would still prefer the trail.

This is a beautiful desert hike. It can be long or short depending on your interests. Best in late March or early April. If you're observant the desert might smile for a picture.

Tried this one a week ago. Nice views of Reno and the "R". Easy to fine and easy to hike. To shade sobering water. This also connects to the halo trail and the rancho San Raphael park trails.

Decided not to do the park loop and instead follow the trails up. Amazing views of almost all of Reno and up into the valleys. About a 4 mile hike round trip. A lot of loose rock at points but easy enough to get through.

Ash Canyon Road to Snow Valley Peak Trail
by

57 Completed 35 Reviews

Didn't actually go all the way up to Snow Valley Peak from the Ash Canyon side because I was more interested in linking up with the Hobart Road above the Reservoir. The road can be four-wheeled up to the point where it forks to the Hobart Road to the north and Snow Valley Peak to the south, but I hiked it. The road is all uphill, but it gets pretty steep after about two and a half miles ("Landing 2".) There are new mileage markers along the road. Accordingly, It's five miles to the parking area on the connector road over to Hobart. Great views from the tops of Ash and Vicee Canyons.
