Expansive views open across the Truckee Meadows to the summits of Mount Rose and Slide Mountain from an easy trail that loops through former ranchland in the distinctive Huffaker Hills. Slide Mountain and Mount Rose form a stony backdrop to the softer browns of the Twin Peaks as you set off on this rocky desert trail. The Truckee Meadows, silver and green with development and greenbelts, fill the gap between the two sets of summits, and to the northwest the towers of Reno’s casino district rise up before the base of massive Peavine Peak. The trails of Huffaker Hills lie on the former ranch of Granville Huffaker, according to park literature.
