Emigrant Trail

The trail begins to climb slightly revealing good views of Mount Rose and Prosser Reservoir. This section of the trail offers great opportunities for wildlife viewing. The trail crosses several roads before you reach Prosser Reservoir. At this point, you can climb to highway 89 through a lush drainage and cross Prosser Creek on the highway bridge, or you can ford the creek. The Highway Bridge crossing is recommended for hikers and bikers especially in early season when water levels are high. Equestrians and bikers must dismount and walk across the bridge. From the highway bridge, the trail follows Prosser Creek for about 1/4 mile to the junction with the trail that forded the creek. Head left, up the dirt road, and follow the road for approximately 50 feet until the single track resumes.
