The Fay-Luther/Jobs Peak Ranch Trail System is a 9-mile network of linear and loop trails that are connected to both the Fay-Luther and Jobs Peak Ranch Trailheads. These trails are open predominately for hikers and equestrians. Mountain bikers are also allowed although the soils are very sandy. Only hikers are allowed on the trail section between the Valley View Loop and the Jobs Peak Ranch Trailhead through private land. There is no trail access to Jobs Peak. Please stay on designated trails only and respect neighboring private property.
These trails travel through both high desert and forested habitats. Some common vegetation includes big sagebrush, rabbitbrush, bitterbrush, curlleaf Mountain-Mahogany, Jeffrey pine, singleleaf pinyon and white alder.
The Interpretive Loop Trail has interpretive signs about the areas human histories, fauna and flora, and landscape forces.
Visitors enjoy this trail system because it provides great views of the Carson Valley and offers multiple relatively flat loops to choose from. All trails are well signed. It is one the most popular trails in the region for hikers, dog walkers and equestrian riders.
