Fun trail. Best to start this hike in the morning. Didn't start until 11:00 and boy was it hot. Latter part of hike provides some shade. The fall was a welcomed site. My pup was excited to play in the pool
All in all, nice little hike.

Great trail! It took us about 5 hours with a 20 minute lunch up at the top. Definitely a good workout and the trail itself was really beautiful. We will be back!

Update to an earlier Reivew
I went back and completed the sections I'd missed in the spring. I connected Tahoe City CA with Kingsbury Grade CA via the Desolation Wilderness.
One must obtain a Desolation Wilderness Permit before going into the region.
the DW is by far my favorite section with vistas and lakes galore.
Do not expect to resupply at Echo Lake Chalette (sp) it is a 'gas station' type of stop with some great people working there.
This mid-August the bugs were gone. The weather mild with late afternoon thunder storms on the Eastern half.

I did this hike to the summit with my parents who are in their 60s. They just retired and regularly hike a 5mile loop near their home. Getting to the waterfall and back is fairly easy. It was gorgeous with lots and lots of wild flowers. But getting to the summit is a challenge. We had to stop many many times. But by going slowly, everyone made the full trip. We are from out of town and the altitude was our biggest challenge. The only thing I would have done differently would have been to bring more water. We ran out by the time we had gotten back to the waterfall and there isn't any water along the trail or at the parking lot.

Hiked and done some snow skiing in this area. Some very strenuous trails, have not done them all, but great views, and excellent get away from the craziness of Vegas.

Arrived early, only one other car in the parking lot, happy to find flushing toilets! Nicely maintained trail, clearly marked, no water on trail, but there is drinking water available before you get to the trailhead. Beautiful views at the peak. I found the trail to be easy.
