Only a 15-minute drive west of Gardnerville on SR-88 is Hope Valley. You can pick up a picnic lunch at Woodfords Station and head out to Picketts Junction (intersection of SR-88 and SR-89). You will find a small parking lot on the south side of the intersection. This lot is the start of the dirt road to Burnside Lake. During winter you can park here and take a short hike to a wonderful sledding and tubing hill. The road is also a great snowshoe and cross-country ski area. There is a seasonal Yurt with snowshoe and cross-country ski rentals available.
