Good trail. met lots of people. if you don't like hiking UP, then Ddon't do this one. The waterfall was beautiful. parts of the trail you need to be very careful with foot placement.

A nice hike that is close to the city of Reno. Trail can get really muddy during wet seasons and crossing the river can be challenging when the river is high. Great views throughout and a satisfying waterfall at the end. I've done this trail in summer and winter and it was a good experience both times. A lot of other hikers and dogs.

Great hike. A little busier than I would like.

Was out there this week pack the sun screen and water/mudboots totally manageable and enjoyable as long as your prepared! Great views of the surrounding mountains as our snowpack begins to melt:)

Amazing hike for March incredible views of waterfall and scenery. From summer to winter in one hike! Bring a sweater just in case

Great!

Fun hike that's close to town. Lots of people out on a warm Sunday afternoon. Trail was pretty soupy in 5-6 spots from the rain and snow melt. Lots of footprints churning up the mud. Once in the tree line trail was very slick on the inclines. Waterfall was very pretty, as was the rest of the hike. Trail head is far enough from major roads that there was no sounds of town, only rushing water from the creek the whole way. Interesting to see where one of the recent fires affected and stopped.

fantastic trail for anyone in Reno. I love the sound of the creek as you hike.

I prefer the Hole in the Wall trail to this one. The difference of making a loop out of the trail doesn't add much scenery. It does add walking past fenced backyards and barking dogs. Trail was a mix of mud and snow after the last few days of snowfall. I would expect it to dry out quickly.

Couple inches of snow once you get in the trees but mostly dirt and mud on the way up. The trail can be easily followed and navigated. Recommend good traction on your shoes since the mud and snow can get a little slick on the steeper slopes. Great run! Especially coming back down! Enjoy!

Beautiful trail, alpine meadow, wet marsh, wooded sections. Not technical. Today was quite icy in the woods & muddy elsewhere. Absolutely hikeable.

Definitely worth the hike when you see the waterfall ! Beautiful and scenic.

It was beautiful

Warning! In order to cross Sugar Bowl terrain during their ski season, a uphill pass is required. Even with an uphill pass, only some uphill routes are approved and unfortunately this is not one of them. I ran into a ski patrol while attempting this trail and was turned around. They told me to visit Sugarbowl.com and read the uphill policy for more information.

Great hike, dogs loved it. Views we’re stellar! Snow was perfect for snowshoeing.

Gorgeous hike, a good portion of it in the sun, even during the winter months it got a little warm. Muddy at this time of the year for stretches, not more than 1/2 mile or so. The waterfall at the end is worth it...sort of frozen over in the winter. Didn’t find the “bridge” the first time through, but built up logs made it fairly easy to cross

Absolutely gorgeous! Park right off the highway as the road to the trail head is narrow and there is no closer parking. Trail was easy to follow the tracks until it crossed the ski runs.

We did this backpacking on snowshoes over 2.5 days - could have been two.
On the way in we followed this trail, and on the way back we went up the ridge route from the south-end of Paradise Lake.
The semi-frozen swamp with the invisible four-wheel drive trail at the end was the 'downside' of this trail for snowshoeing - at least on our trip. We were on top of the trail according to the GPS, but I have no idea where it was. At the end of a long day, that was the biggest downer of the trip - wet freezing boots and leaping creeks with a pack and snowshoes on :/ I recommend getting to the Paradise Lake sign early, and taking your time with route finding to skirt the swamp.
The ridge trail out, our ' I am not doing that again reroute', was beautiful, but also very hard work on snowshoes! It is a lovely area, and once away from the highway noise, a peaceful winter trip with the option to stop by the Peter Grubb Hut for a little Sierra history.

This time of year the PCT underpass is a knee-high frigid drain! Walking under the highway on the road shoulder from the SnowPark was much better on the way back.
Also note, for overnight trips you are required to park at the SnowPark, so remember to get a permit.

Little muddy today, but always an amazing hike :)
As others have mentioned, there is a bridge so you don't have to cross the very first creek. Take the higher trail to your left and follow it in for a ways, until you see a small white silo on your right. There is a metal grate bridge right there!

I went back to try the trail again and managed to find the bridge. Take the very narrow steep trail that goes up to the left and follow it along the creek until you find a metal bridge that crosses over it. It will be on your right a ways up the creek. Once you cross the creek, which is flowing very heavily right now, it’s an absolutely gorgeous hike

really beautiful scenery. the waterfall is amazing

Really nice trail to jog & hike. Very muddy at the moment but worth it at the end. Hike takes about 3 hrs round trip.

More of a nature walk or easy trail run. Not much of a hike. Pretty views though. It was a bit muddy yesterday as well.

Also went parallel with the plan to catch the actual trail on the way down, but couldn’t get to the Peak with the snow. Snowshoes helped but in certain areas, especially getting up to the Peak, yaktrax or some kind of spikes would be most helpful. The views from the Ridge were amazing none the less.

Very nice trail, very easy and chill, some unleashed dogs and a bit muddy at the end of the trail. I’ll recommend not going to finish the loop and turn back a quarter of the trail left to avoid muddy parts!

Snoweshoed up to the peak on 1/11/18. We didn’t travel on this trail directly, instead we went parallel to it and then came back on the opposite side, making it a loop. Most of the trail was pretty easy with snowshoes, with the exception of the top, where you really had to dig your crampons in to get yourself up the final stretch. The top was stunning and we even watched a snowing cloud moving in towards us. The effort was worth it!

It was worth a mile of mud trail in January! Beautiful in the winter!

Great hike. The trail was pretty muddy for the first couple miles but cleared up as I got higher.
