Jones White Creek Trail Hike

Jones and Whites Creek Trail is a 10 mile loop, filled with beautiful views of wild flowers, pine trees, and rushing waters. It’s located in Galena, close to Reno Nevada, and is not for the faint of heart. Dog owners can enjoy the hike with man’s best friend – as long as they’re kept on a leash. And although I’m an avid biker, I would not recommend biking this trail – it’s best to enjoy the views on foot with family (or a friend or two!)

Starting Point of Whites Creek Trail Hike

IMG_0006

I always enter at the Galena Creek Regional Park north entrance. You will find ample parking there (especially early in the morning) and it’s the best starting point. At the beginning part of the hike, be aware that it’s mostly uphill. I recommend taking routine breaks and drinking lots of water. And, with so much amazing scenery to enjoy, every moment is enjoyable – even when you stop for a breather.

Remember, the entire loop is almost 10 miles – so if you’re not ready for the whole thing – don’t worry! You can always pace yourself by starting up the trail a couple miles and turning around toward the beginning, until you’ve worked your way up to doing the entire loop.

It’s best to start your hike early in the morning to avoid the dry Nevada heat that quickly ascends over the mountains. If you start around 7am-8am during the summer, you should be able to enjoy your hike without too much heat.

Please enjoy some of my favorite spots from the hike. You’ll see the creek winding through the trail. And don’t forget to turn your volume up to hear the rushing water! And instant mood booster.
