Excellent hike in the fall with all the beautiful fall colors on the aspen trees. There are a couple places where you cross the creek and need to cross on rocks otherwise you'll get your shoes wet. Very shady trail and plenty of parking at the trailhead. Also, pit toilets available at the parking lot/Trailhead. No toilets on the trail. We packed a lunch and ate it at our turn around spot. Very well signed trail. Bring water and a snack or lunch. We hiked a total of 8 miles!

Very pretty and shady! I highly recommend making sure you pee before start the hike because the water from the creek can definitely get to you.

Mellow out and back trail. Great for a quick ride or anyone new to the sport.

Nice 1/2 day hike. Most of the hike is in the shade so it's good in the summer. As a bonus the trail connects to the Tahoe Rim trail.

Beautiful hike ! So green and so much growing after a plentiful winter. Not very strenuous, planning on taking our kids next time!

Great trail for mountain biking. Come on weekdays and it's not as busy. But when you get far enough (3-4 miles in) the crowd is almost gone
