There was a lot of downed timber the first 1/4 mile or so but after that it turns into a great little hike. Pretty rock formations and lake views at the top. Great hike if you're short on time.

Great hike! Some climbing but nothing too intense. Views at the top were great. Time of year was perfect. We saw less than 5 people on the trail and got both sunshine and snow flurries.

Nice little hike, although I wish I didn't hike it on the holiday weekend. Everybody and their mother were out on the trail. I'm sure during a weekday is much better.

The first lookout loop "Spur Trail" is only about 5-10 minutes off the trail and gives great 360 views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding areas.

Trail continuing on is easy-moderate and has a good amount of shade from the trees. Peaceful trail and we didn't see many other people when we hiked past the lookout point, except for a few mountain bikers.

Started at the trailhead 2.75 mi up from the traffic light at the intersection of highway 89 and 267 in Kings Beach. We did the 3.6 mi round trip and it was amazing. You can keep going to Martis if you want but that was too far for us that day . At the top there are huge piles of boulders where we sat and enjoyed a cold beverage. People were picnicking with their dogs and kids. There is an almost 360 degree view looking down on Lake Tahoe and on the other side you can see the Truckee River. We went in early March so there were a few patches of snow, not much due to the sad lack of snowfall this year. I did get a bit winded being from San Diego and acclimating to the elevation but the top of this mountain made it all worth it. We encountered a few people and even a dude riding his bike UP the trail. You go buddy!

Ok. Average Trail.

Pros: Gorgeous overlook of Tahoe Basin when you reach the Fire Watch tower.
Another nice view of Lake Tahoe halfway up.

Cons: A little boring.
