Discovery Trail: Eagle Ridge Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Especially when the trails higher up in the mountains are buried under snow, the Genoa Trail System has a couple of lower-elevation loop options for hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians. The Eagle Ridge Loop offers sweeping views of Carson Valley and the Pine Nut Mountains, as well as a pair of perennial little streams along the way.

The trip is best done as a point-to-point hike, shuttling between the Eagle Ridge and Sierra Canyon Trailheads. Otherwise, you’ll have to walk a couple of miles along roads in order to get back to either trailhead. When hiking here in the summer, start early in the day to avoid the hot afternoon temperatures."
