This is a really great hiking area with nice loop trails, and perfect for dogs. At the entrance of the park is an inviting grass field to relax on a blanket or throw a ball or frisbee around. There are also tennis and volleyball courts, horse rings, and a nice gazebo-covered picnic area with barbecues and trees. But the dog park areas are what this place is all about for me. It is a very good place to take your pup for a play date. You might even see some wild horses, which is super exciting! A few things to keep in mind: beware of rattle snakes and the occasional sand scorpion. Because there are many trail options, its easy to get lost. Look out for the way point markers. The park has both easy and moderate trails, great for leisurely walking but there are some more difficult paths you can hike on if you are looking for a more challenging workout, with excellent views all around. These trails are shared with the occasional mountain bikers riding the 6.5 mi loop. There's not a lot of shade so the hot sun can be unforgiving, so pack water and stay hydrated (the park also has running water fountains and open, clean restrooms). During the summer, if you hike close to sunset, the temperatures are cooler and there are amazing, colorful views of the Reno skyline and Mt Rose.
