      This trail system connects the Fay-Luther and Jobs Peak Ranch Trailheads which are 3.5 miles apart. There is a total of about 9 miles of loop and connector trails to choose from. The Interpretive Loop provides interpretive signs about the area. There is no trail access to Jobs Peak. Please stay on designated trails only and respect neighboring private property.

      Bikes and Equestrians: All trails are open to mountain bikes and equestrians except for part of the Fay-Luther/Jobs Peak Ranch Trail between Jobs Peak Ranch Trailhead and the Valley View Loop. This section of trail has loose soils, cable steps and modest terrain challenges. Much of this section is also located on private land which allows hikers only. Mountain biking is difficult on many of these trails because of sandy, loose soils. Horse trailer parking is present at the Fay-Luther Trailhead only.

      Dogs: Dogs are allowed everywhere but must be leashed year-round on the first 1.5 miles from the Jobs Peak Ranch Trailhead because this portion of trail is within a Douglas County trail easement on private property. Dogs must also be leashed November 15 through March 30 everywhere else to reduce stress on deer during the winter season. There is a high volume of trail users with dogs on this trail system; please courteously pick up after your dog by using the provided dog waste bags at the trailheads.

      Environment: The trails are fairly gentle throughout the area. The first half mile from the Fay-Luther Trailhead and the first mile from the Jobs Peak Ranch Trailhead have limited shade, travelling through thick areas of big sagebrush, rabbitbrush and bitterbrush. The rest of the trail system is mostly an open Jeffrey pine forest with a mix of singleleaf pinyon, curlleaf mountain mahogany, white alder, aspen, willow and black cottonwood. There are very nice views of the Carson Range, Pine Nut Range and Carson Valley throughout the trail system.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
