Had a quick visit to Reno, NV and visiting Lake Tahoe was a must. This hike was exactly what I was looking for; a view of the lake (an amazing one at that!) and a chance to be in the mountains. Went down to hidden beach on the way back too! Highly recommend this trail!

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!

Just the 90 minute hike I wanted today! Headed the wrong way to cross the “bridge” to get across the creek before I headed back the right way. There was only one trail and it was mostly packed dirt with some loose rocks at a couple points. I loved hearing the rushing creek as I hiked and after 15 minutes it was all mountains! A good workout, I was even able to run a little on the way down. It was well populated so I felt safe as I single 54 year old woman. Can’t wait to make it to the falls when I have more time.

Nice hike on well-packed snow. Some icy spots. Nice views around the 1 mile mark, but a lot of time spent in the woods. Parking seems like it could be a little tight in summer around the diner.

Nice trail. The grade is very gentle, so not really steep at any point. The trail is initially just a spiderweb of social trails until you cross the creek, then pretty easy to follow until the waterfall.

Gorgeous trail and the waterfall was stunning. No snow for most of the trail but a few slick spots towards the end. I really enjoyed this hike and the changing plant communities.

An easy trail with great views that is perfect for an evening after work!

Incredible year round

A bit muddy and icy but worth the snow trails at the top

1 month ago

this is the easiest over 10,000 feet in the Tahoe areai have done 4 others that are harder

Beautiful hike but more amazing in the snow. looks like a winter wonderland.

Easy! Fun trail.

Ran this trail a couple of times. It's a bit grueling but worth the downhill.:)

Great hike. First mile or so is slightly difficult. Took us 3.5hrs with probably 30 minutes of breaks included.

Beautiful hike. Moderate hike even with snow early on the morning. Terrain became a little more difficult as sun came up and the snow turned to mud and ice. Waterfall is currently partially frozen but beautiful. Cannot wait to go back in the Spring.

Awesome hike. Agree that this is moderate in difficulty as elevation gain is very gradual. My tracker reported 7.2 miles (Map my fitness) so not sure how this is 5.7 miles on app.

great for short training runs! over 1000ft ele gain, moderately technical, a couple nice fairly smooth lightly downhill and flat combos for some speed, great for interval and hill work! basically just a lot of fun to run! go by 6am,you'll be back well befor 8 and not many hikers then...some days none, I see about 3 other regular runners around that time. single track, u hafta walk to pass hikers, tho most step off to side politely, few dogs, all well behaved.

Amazing! Beautiful views the entire way. Steady incline all the way up, but you are stopping to take it all in anyway so you will get plenty of breaks!

Legendary Flume Trail! Take this 1.5 mi, 5 mi, 7 mi all the way up to the entire 15 mi trail. Incredible Lake Tahoe vistas all along the way. Solid vertical climb so you get a great workout in as well. Bring water as it gets hot and dry. Careful of mountain bikers if you’re walking a dog. Enjoy the hike! Enjoy the views!!

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.

Absolutely breathtaking! Highly recommend. Do this hike. Stunning views all the way up and they keep getting better. Steady uphill the whole way, but plenty of rocks to stop and sit and rest as needed. Lots of turnoffs to explore as well. Definitely will go back!

What a beautiful hike in the fall.
Moderate is a pretty accurate rating given the length and terrain. Not hard even for my out of shape butt but definitely going to feel it tomorrow.
I mapped just under 6 miles from the parking lot round trip. Please keep that in mind when heading out.
had a few people ask me if they were almost to the falls when they were about a mile in.
Cant wait to go in the Spring!

Awesome awesome

Kicked my butt, but it was a beautiful hike.

We have done this hike several times and had a great experience today! Learned a few new things, namely how to cross the creek without getting wet! I have heard about an alternate crossing and finally found it today, excellent day as the rocks at the inital crossing were covered in ice.

From the paved parking lot at the top of the access road down to the creek, take the single track trail to the left that skirts the hillside and follow it instead of going down the gravel road. There will be several paths down to the river from this single track including a set of steps down to a thick log crossing the river. This would be stable enough bit we chose to keep following the trail up a bit to a small, white water tower with a metal grate bridge across. This was completely stable and safe for us today and I recommend choosing either this bridge or the log for a safer initial crossing. Thanks to the hiker that told us about this!

The other crossing that has always been problematic for me was the dam just below the waterfall. Apparently, I am the only person who did not know there is a huge log to cross just below the dam! This would have saved me a lot of wet shoes! Just in case this is a problem for others too: off the main trail, just below the dam and waterfall is another well-worn trail to the left that goes down to a huge, stable log that makes for easy creek crossing.

Hope this review helps and many others can enjoy and care for this beautiful area! The waterfall was icy and spectacular today!

I walk slowly and totally spend 3 1/2 hours. The view is really amazing. Only one thing bother me is- crossing the river. Water still is so much. My shoes get wet. On my way back, I try to take off my shoes/socks and cross by my bare foots. The water is freezing cold! ! however, it is still a great experience.

great loop

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.
