In Hidden Valley a short segment of the Emigrant Trail is identified by markers and fenced off for preservation. If you look carefully, you can note the wagon ruts in the dirt. The Donner Party may have used this route in 1846. More discussion of this route may be found here. Another remnant of the trail survives in the Dog Valley area west of Reno.
