This loop is easy enough, because the length of the trail runs along an historic flume that formerly delivered cordwood and timber to the Washoe Valley. The route is described in the way I initially hiked it, but it might be even easier to hike in reverse. You’ll encounter a few steep spots along the described route, but they’re not long, and the total elevation gain is 800 feet over 1.3 miles, or 1.75 miles if done in reverse. The middle 3 miles are essentially flat and shaded.
