Beautiful hike, not terribly well marked, but easy to find your way up to the falls if you’ve got a sense of adventure.

Absolutely amazing! Stunning views and plenty of places to stop and just relax next to the falls! I highly recommend it!

Love this trail for training like hill repeats. Good for training for races like Spartan.

Beautiful views and waterfalls! The trail was tough to follow at a couple spots. watch for logs and rocks that help guide you. We started about 8:30 am. By the time we were heading down it had gotten pretty crowded, but the way up was peaceful.

This hike is very beautiful with lots of trees, places near the river to rest, and of course the waterfall. The trail is poorly marked but there is a dirt path that starts from the Tahoe basin sign that first directs you into the parking lot and that leads all the way up. Lots of granite slabs to climb, and if you lose the trail, it's mostly fine as long as you aim towards the waterfall. Along the way you should pass the desolation wilderness trailhead, and that trail is fairly easy to follow.

There are two ways to walk around. One is an easy walk on wide trails and roads. The other spilts off and follows a single track that stays near to the lake. There are a few tricky footing spots but it’s still easy. This way is horrible for ticks! Check yourself and your dogs if you go this route. I also agree it’s not worth traveling for but it’s a good place for locals to walk their dogs.

Brilliant and spectacular!!!!

It's also important the company you keep on the trail to share the scenery with. Moderate hike, exciting views, with many multiple opportunities to expand your exploration.

Beautiful views. Nice shorter hike with some climbing. Nice to have All Trails to stay on trail when there were a couple of forks.

Beautiful terrain that vacillated between forested shade and granite slabs to bouldering cascades at the top.

current ranger will not allow dogs on any trail. owner of the nearby apple farm said each ranger follows their own rules and dogs were allowed on this trail in the past.

The falls itself were very refreshing. As for the trail, we took a different route to the falls. Right off of freeway 80 in Auburn, we took Forest hill road which leads us to Lake Clamentine road. This is more hard than the normal trail as it loses elevation pretty quickly and coming back up is fairly hard, of course if you are on foot (and we were, and it was not fun coming back up!). There is parking right off of the falls but I think it is only for people who bring their boats, and it is small which fills up quickly on a weekend.

Best hike by far perfect not too long! Lots of beautiful views! Love it!

Great demanding trail and not for the faint of heart. I’m just starting to get back in shape and this trail really challenges me. Due to time constraints and my current capabilities I took the shortcut using the Pig Farm Trail route which made it about 1.5 mile hike round trip.

Very nice fairly easy hike. Lots of great side trails down to the river. Enjoyed a quick dip to cool off. It was very enjoyable and I will be back.

This hike was fun and had great views of a waterfall and some cool rock formations, but the trail was poorly marked. We had our two-year-old in a pack with us, and some areas were a bit precarious for carrying a kid.

Much of the trail is exposed so wear a hat and bring sunscreen. Lots of loose rocks, so wear good footwear.

Overall, this hike is totally worth checking out, but with all of the cool trails in northern CA, I’m not sure I’ll do this one again.

Fantastic options as you traverse the main trail. Lofty vistas make hiking up a ridge worth the effort. The trail is good for most... it can be a tad steep in some places, so wear proper footwear.
Don’t forget to pay... 6-month pass (affordable) and parking fee.

nice easy trail. nice scenery . water is clear and cool to jump in for a dip after your hike. easy walk for whole family. best do do early morning to have a an easy hike . highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed this hike. Easy to moderate at times with absolutely stunning views. Lots of water to cool off in along the way. Would definitely recommend you do this hike!

It is an enjoyable trail, I was a little disappointed to see vehicle traffic upon reaching the lake, access to the lake is almost non existant by foot. I will definelty take the hike to the swimming holes next time. Parking is pretty bad as well. That's to be expected. It is a beautiful area.

I’d say it’s a boring local trail. No views. The loop at some point takes you along the hwy, not very pleasant to walk with the dogs. There’s really nothing to this trail. I see why locals enjoy it: close by, easy. Maybe winter, fall, spring be a little better. Definitely not a summer trail.

Park itself is very nice. Definitely worth checking it out.

Pretty view and steady elevation but kinda boring just walking so long with little to stop and explore the higher you go up the hill

Well marked trail that intersects with a few others. If you are interested in taking a swim, I'd suggest going counter clockwise at the start/Y. This will put you at the best swimming lake (Round) just over halfway in the loop. Round has a nice beach at the southernmost part of the trail. I estimate water temp at 70-72 degrees. Lots of folks and kids were swimming.

The final 2.5 mile drive to the base of this canyon- and where the trailhead begins- is difficult to drive. There is not any true designated parking area, so most vehicles just park along the side of this dirt road. There is a sign next to the bridge & bathrooms directing you toward Codfish Falls Trail, which we set out on and hiked for about 45 minutes before we came to a very dry creek bed and a bunch of homemade stick signs pointing us to go back

One of my favorite local spots.

Hiking here various in difficulties. Some spots are paved and flat, while others become rocky and heavily inclined. The trailheads aren't really marked well, but do point you in the direction of land marks, ie: Pond, Lake, Caves.

What I love about this hike is the varying terrain and views, You'll start out deep in the forested areas, eventually getting views of the cliffs and more rural areas of Fairfield. Evntually stumbling across a small pond and then a nice lake filled with an abundance of wildlife.
It's not uncommon to see Herons, Ducks, Chipmunks, Fence Lizards, Turtles, and Bullfrogs in and around the pond.

Beautiful hike, uphill on the way in which I'm sure is why it's rated moderate. Beautiful views, wide trail- I will do it again in the cooler weather.

A really beautiful hike all the way around! There are 5 lakes along the way, tons of butterflies and wild flowers everywhere! This hike looks simple, but really pushes you. It’s well marked and we had no trouble finding our way when crossing other paths! Great for all ages!

Disappointed trail turns into asphalt

If you’re not going Swimmin go elsewhere

The views of Long Lake and its surroundings are absolutely stunning.

Great beautiful trail with a nice variety of terrain, gorgeous views, and plenty of wild flowers. Lost the trail briefly at the highest peak. Could use some tail markers. All Trails app helped us get back on track pretty quickly. We highly recommend this hike!

Absolutely breathtaking views. Easy to moderate at times, but thoroughly enjoyed the hike. Would recommend you don't pass this one up!
