Another hike that took place before this app?website was up and running. I loved this experience. it was great for higher elevation training since you stay well above 8 grand the entire time. I remember stunning views of Lake Tahoe, Washoe Valley and a glimmer of Reno. Well worth the effort!

Great hike! Steep and exhausting, but the views at the top was amazing! I went in mid November and there was no snow yet.

Cute little lighthouse, really pretty hike with great lake views.

Beautiful trail - tried to do after a big snow storm and lost the last mile of trail. Still had great views and would recommend.

The ideal introduction to hiking trails in Tahoe. Spectacular views begin almost immediately. Granite Lake, about half way up, is charmingly picturesque, and there are more stunning views nearing the saddle. You can stop and go back at any point and have a pleasant hike. You can do it in 3 hours but why not take longer and enjoy it.

Make sure you recognize the elevation gain!! It’s almost straight up the whole way! Bring good shoes and lots of water. The view is absolutely worth it and the way back is easy.

Great hike, lots of elevation gain. It took us and a dog about 3 hours there and back. Be aware that out and back is almost 6 miles to top of the peak. The view was incredible and worth it!

Hard at times due to continued climbing up, but it’s worth every step because of the amazing views at the very top.

Beautiful weather! I trail ran/hiked this peak in 3 hours. Ran the flat non-rocky parts and hiked the steepest parts. This is a well marked trail and there were a lot of people (and dogs) on the trail. The waterfall was partially frozen as were some of the little stream crossings. There was patching snow on the trail above the tree line just before I reached the summit. It was easily avoidable and didn’t bother me at all in my running shoes. Didn’t see a summit box, but there was a USGS summit marker on a large rock. Great trail. Would do this one again. November 17, 2018.

This hike is amazing! Highly recommend! Dog friendly. Lake along the way for pups to swim and cool off.

Awesome awesome

Beautiful hike and views. Did an amazing sunrise hike and the whole way up to the peak we got beautiful views of the sun coming over the mountains with the lake in front. Little steep at times but definitely a consistent incline. Top has a well worth it view.

waterfall was gorgeous, hike was up and down so the elevation change was relatively manageable. Not too much traffic or wildlife but theres a decent amount of parking.

Beautiful hike, recommend it. Not that tough, but longer than 6.4. I recorded just over 10 total from PCT trailhead to Overlook and back. ( More to enjoy the way I see it!)

Beautiful views! Bit of an incline at the beginning, but the trail levels out. My feet were feeling the hike at the end. The waterfall was lovely.

great loop

A very tough climb up to the top but well worth it. Bring a lunch or some snacks and hang out on the peak with the nice view!

If you are looking for a long walk through the trees, culminating with a view up top, then this is for you. We did not see any other hikers but we did run into a few mountain bikers.

Time this trail accordingly as it will be covered in snow during winter/spring. This is my go to place for hiking. Its a nice hike with shaded trees. There is a nice resting spot next to a waterfall. The views are stunning looking over Reno and of course Lake Tahoe. Recommend doing this hike in light summer/fall for the best weather.

Great hike with great views. The last mile is a bit of a climb but well worth it.

Gotta love loop hikes! Even without the trip to the summit this is an excellent hike. Take the brand-new Tahoe Rim Trail section from the top of the waterfall for an added workout (instead of dropping into the valley before getting to the junction that leads to the top of Mt. Rose) (on this map).
Also, be aware that there is a new cut-off from the "Rest Stop to Relay" trail to the Relay Peak Trail at about .7 miles from the trailhead. (NOT on this map, or the one at the trailhead)). You'll still get where you're going, but it's a little confusing.

Beautiful hike with panoramic views of Lake Tahoe at every turn. On this day it was pretty windy It had to be at least 25 mph winds I felt like I was gonna blow away craziest wind I’ve experienced

Great views, moderate traffic but still enjoyed it. The waterfall at the end was great. Definitely enjoyed the afternoon and would go again. Took a couple hours but wasn’t in a rush, lots of spots for pics!
