Fun single track. Fairly rocky but not too technical. Climbs are pretty short with nothing too steep. There are currently trail closures in this area for forest maintenance so be prepared to alter your route.

Amazing hike with awesome views of the whole lake as you hike along the ridge. Cool comparison between the Tahoe side and the desert Nevada side. Stunning hike! A total beast of a hike to knock out in one day though.

Amazing! Skip the last climb and stay on the TRT. Great views of Marlette with Tahoe behind it

Corral to Sidewinder to Cedar

Great hike and not many people on the trail yet. Went through a couple of snow drifts but we’re very passable

The National Forest Foundation, in partnership with the USDA Forest Service, is conducting a Forest Health & Fuels Reduction Project in the vicinity of the Sawtooth/Bald Mountain Trail. Operations are planned from 2020 – 2021, during Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. During this time, there will be trail closures, heavy machinery, and tree-falling/flying debris in the area. Users should exercise caution, observe trail closures, and keep at least 300’ back from equipment. To avoid danger, alternate trails in the area are advised. The Big Chief Trail (~4 miles down the 06 road) will remain open. More information on the project, trail closures and more may be found at: www.nationalforests.org/bigjackeast

Bad news from the forest service! They are doing a lot of clearing and will be regularly closing down regions of the 06 fire road area all summer. They said they will be posting updates on the forest service website. Good news is yay fire control and thanks forest service!

Hiked Sat. May 2nd. Only hit a few large snow patches starting about a mile from the top. Trail was great along with the weather, although it was a little windy at the top.

Beautiful hike, but unfortunately couldn’t finish due to snow at mile 9. Used the fire road (Mount Watson Blvd.) to hike down from the TRT.

Still 2-3 weeks away from being rideable. Too many snowfields to cross yet.

Just hiked it today. Still snow at High Meadow from 7800 feet till about 7500 feet. Snow shoes not necessary but high boots are.

Hiked this a week back, even with snowshoes the last mile is a challenge. Walking at such a strange angle really did a number on my ankles. The views are worth it. It easy to lose the trail so keep your GPS handy. Marlette is still frozen but beginning to thaw. Another couple weeks and the trail should be mostly snow free. Nice gradual climb

Great views along the creek and through the meadow. The trail is still covered in snow at the top of the Jeep trail and in the meadow may be best to wait a few weeks (or bring snowshoes).

I love this trail for a good day hike. It can be nice and short to a good view, or long with lots of varied forest. spectacular views

Weather was perfect! A little windy on top. Trail is pretty well established only lost it three times and was within 20-30 yards each time before I would pickup tracks again due to some wind swept areas that would hide previous snow shoe tracks.
