Beautiful view (I went mid-August) regardless of the weather. Doesn’t get much better than a day with no clouds and high 70 degree weather. Takes about 20 minutes at a slow walk to get to a view of south lake, and then a 15-20 minute slow walk without an incline that looks over Carnelian Bay. Great little walk for families and people who want a great selfie photo.

nice.
shady.
lotsa water for the dogs.
easy.

This trail has amazing views of Lake Tahoe! It is a workout with the steep inclines going up but quick and easy going back down! Family and dog friendly. Quick hike / walk unless you stop and read all the signs with historical info about the lake or just sit and enjoy the view. Definitely a must! The trail head is marked with a green gate, parking is on the road next to it. There is a bathroom at top.

Absolutely stunning location to watch the sun rise over the lake. Also helps that very few other folks wake up that early, so you have the point mostly to yourself.

Great views from parts of the trail. longish, boring return parallel to the road

amazing views

Awesome moderate trail. Took the kids. Great views.

A lot of fun for our 13 year old golden retriever!

This is a fantastic view of the lake! Accessible and well marked, this is a must for visitors to the north end of Lake Tahoe. Gorgeous views and really gives you a feel of the vastness of the lake.

Great trail. Very beautiful & scenic through most areas. Great for dogs as well.

Moderate difficulty ascending about 25 mi ire’s
Spectacular photo opportunities

did this with my 1 year old walking by himself. We love the different scenery in the trail. Walk next to the river the first half and a stroll through the trees that the blue jays just love! Love all the birds. Close to the freeway, but can hardly hear it while on the trail.

Great initial stroll for acclimation arriving in Tahoe. Beautiful views of both California and Nevada (Calivada?) from the top of the peninsula. Easy access for kids and older folks, or basically a brisk jog to warm up before heading to something more challenging.

very peaceful and Awesome place to hike! I love it

This paved road provides a nice, short walk. The gain is totally doable for novices and there is a small loop at the top (a smaller, paved trail) has educational markers and benches.

There is a sign for "Fire Lookout" when you come up Resevoir Rd from the Bilmore Casino. Drive a little Way's and you'll see a green, metal gate where the trail road starts and plenty of parking on the right.

Extremely manicured and well trafficked hike. Walks along a neighborhood/golf course and ends at a highway. Much better hikes around.

Realy good trail did most of the trail without looking at the map. Both of our dogs handled the trail easily

Nice short loop with great views. We brought some sandwiches and had a nice lunch while looking at the lake.

Amazing views!

I wasn't real excited going around the back side of the hill to discover that there was not a path where the app said there was. Considering the sign at the beginning of the trail talking about Rattlers, I did not want to chance things with my dog and head off through the sagebrush. We ended up walking down the road until it met back up and the bottom. The trail going back was very flat and in my opinion the best part of the trail. From this part you can see the view of Washoe Lake and the mountains. The heard of deer was there for me as well and the flowers are starting to bloom, which was very nice.

Truly beautiful and enjoyable! Do this hike at least once a week. My dog loves it

We were pleasantly surprised with this hike. We hiked it the end of April, which was perfect. It’s high desert, so it could get pretty hot in the warmer months of summer. Very little shade or water. Spring is definitely the time to go on this hike. We took the trail up to the gazebo, which had a lovely little stream, beautiful desert peach blooming, other wild flowers and great markers identifying the different plants along the trail. At the top where the gazebo is, is a spectacular view of Washoe Valley, Washoe Lake, Mt. Rose and Slide Mountain. Then we hiked over to Deadman’s Loop which has no trees. no shade whatsoever. We came across beautiful wild flowers tucked alongside the sagebrush, more desert peach blooming and a large herd of deer. This hike is worth doing. As others have stated, it’s a great first hike after the winter months. We feel like we found a gem with this one.

It’s absolutely beautiful here right now. The ducks are nesting, the plants are coming back to life, the river is flowing, and the trails are dry. Super easy little nature walk, nice way to catch some fresh air on your lunch break!

We did this on our honeymoon, I was in a car accident about a month before and had back injuries so I couldn't do anything crazy but this was perfect and beautiful!

This is a nice hike along a pretty river. The river is very full this time of year, but not over it's banks. Walking the river on this side of the highway does indeed make you appreciate the lack of houses on the other side. There are Aspen's growing along the river for most of the trails length. I'm sure it's very pretty in the fall. Interesting fallen log bridge at the end of the trail. Not much past that, but fun to climb the natural bridge.

Nice area to explore in town. With the river so close, it drowns out most of the city sounds. Lots of wildlife with different birds and animal tracks. Will probably be prettier in late spring and summer months when everything is green. Lots of signs saying no dogs.
