If you turn onto Stephanie Way between Minden and Carson City, then left on and down Heybourne Road, you'll find 5 miles of trail in the Bently-Kirman ranch area. Along the trail is the Carson River, which flows its winding path through Carson Valley. Hike along the river's wetlands full of willow trees and migratory birds. Because this area is a working cattle ranch, only hiking is allowed on the Bently Heritage Trail, so leave horses, dogs and bikes at home.
