The 3-mile hiking trail in the Wilson Canyon area near Reno, NV, planned since 2005, is now open to the public.
The trail is on the south side of Wilson Canyon, southeast of the Walker River bridge. It begins at the trailhead situated at the parking area at the west end of the canyon, traverses over the ridge to the east, runs north back to the river and then along the river to the east. From there, it travels east and south, eventually looping back to the parking area.
The trail is situated entirely on United States Forest Service Land.
Hikers should expect a moderately demanding hike where they will, in places, find it necessary to negotiate rocks and steep but short climbs.
