Dry Creek Pond

My life is not being consumed by enjoying my time outside, in the 75 degree spring on new trails; instead I am stuck inside…studying for finals for my 5 classes and working 32 hours a week and preparing for a 2,000 mile move across the country in a few weeks.Needless to say, my “zen” is totally off. However writing about these new trails and bring up old pictures from the hikes gives me the slightest sense of peace, and is keeping me calm until I can be free.

This trail is an extension to the ones I wrote about in my previous blog. And to get here its pretty much the same. You take Mt Rose highway up and turn right onto Timberline Dr. Then you turn LEFT onto NF 047. This is a really crappy road but if you follow it up about a mile there will be a little parking lot and this is the trail head.  Some of you may find this trail familiar, that is because it is where the 2012 Reno Galena Fest Run was held.

I take this trail up to dry creek pond. Apparently there is a pond up at the top of the mountain but I have yet to see one.. I only see the remains of a pond as you can see.

This trail is no walk in the park, it is long and pretty steep. You can mountain bike part of the way but near the top the trail is completely sand and you have no grip what so ever. But all the hard work definitely pays off when you have a view like this.

Where have you been able to explore in this spring weather? Share your journeys with me so I can enjoy them too!

Happy Trails!
