Fay Luther/Jobs Peak Ranch Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Fay Canyon–Luther Creek Trail is one of the only routes at this end of Carson Valley where hikers, bikers, and equestrians can travel on a maintained trail from the valley floor up an eastside Sierra canyon. After a mile-long romp through sagebrush and forest, the trail generally stays a good distance away from Luther Creek on the way up Fay Canyon, so packing extra water would be a wise move. Views up the canyon toward 10,630-foot Jobs Peak are quite impressive, made even more so in autumn when the aspen-lined drainage is ablaze with color. Additional views during the ascent include the agricultural ranchlands of Carson Valley with a fine backdrop from the Pine Nut Mountains to the east."
