Nice out and back with a huge reward at the falls. Lots of water this spring and there are some great hammock possibilities.

Trail was well maintained and easy to follow! Parking lot was closed so we parked near the RV parking, there is marked day parking use in that lot. We stopped just short of half way point. We decided to hike down into a little cove near the lake. Oh and ACAB—-BLM

Just got home. Amazing. Trail can be hard to follow in some spots. I always go off trail and hike and play along the water edge. Reading recent reviews I was concerned about too many people but honestly it was not bad, pretty quiet

Easy little run to the falls & back; about 50 minutes. Had a little swim at the top of the falls, highly recommend. Go early to avoid the crowd. I'll be back!

It was a beautiful site at the end. But WAY too many people and sadly a lot of trash. I suggest going early if you want to enjoy without the crowds

one of my fav hikes! dog friendly and very fun. the path is a little confusing in some areas but kinda cool because you can go off and do your own thing. (as long as you’re careful & know how to get back) the trails are usually pretty easy to find too if you get lost somehow. The top of the waterfall is the prettiest view, and when the water isn’t quite so full there’s a little swimming hole. Beautiful hike overall. Be ready to step in some water tho & be careful cause it’s verrrrry slippery as you get closer to the waterfall. :)

overall this is a beautiful trail that takes you along the Bassi creek to the lower and upper falls, winding through forest and open rocky areas . I would highly recommend downloading the offline map because this trail is not well marked and I honestly didnt even know where the trail first started, I ended up finding it through the map. I also highly recommend getting there by or before 9am. I started the trail around 830am, with only 3 cars in the lot and I finished the trail around 130pm and it was packed even during a monday! . This hike also does have some incline and is a bit rocky. I also recommend bringing water resistant shoes as you have to walk through a lot of creeks as you get closer to the waterfall. the waterfall is gorgeous though. The area near the falls does have a lot of slippery rock so be careful with that as well.

Was so beautiful!! One of the best ones we have done. Worth the views

My husband and I hiked here with our two dogs on May 31st. The weather was great, cool and almost all of the trail is shaded. It was great for our dogs because the ground is mostly dirt and long pine needles (probably not what they’re called). But not rocky like some other areas on the way to Tahoe/in Tahoe that are bad for dog feet. We saw a few other hikers and a few mountain bikers. Everyone was polite. The directions link for Google Maps worked perfectly to get us to the trailhead. However, following the map provided at the trailhead for hiking was more challenging. On our first attempt, we started down the route right past the trail map and somehow looped right back to the parking lot, yielding a 2 mile walk. We then decided to walk down the trail at the end of the parking lot. Do not recommend. It was all flooded and there was a ton of housing debris and shotgun shells. So we felt creeped out and turned back to try the trails beyond the sign again. This time we followed the “8” signs and it was going pretty well until about 4 miles in, when we ended up on a semi-paved road. We were pretty tired at this point because the trail was consistently uphill. We followed the paved road for awhile and then I decided to look at Google Maps. Thankfully I had cell service, and it brought us back to the parking lot along a different road (had to turn back), walking for about a mile and a half. All in all, it was a nice day. Great weather, pretty scenery, lots of shade. But probably won’t do this again unless we use trail guidance assistance. (Just didn’t seem like it would be that hard! Lol.)

My first hike on this trail. Started around 8.15 am and there were 7-8 cars in the parking lot. A warm day in 50s. The first 1.5 miles was easy. The next mile a lot steeper and loose soil. Around the third mile mark, patches of snow, easy enough to walk on regular hiking shoes. The last 100 meters, were rocks, not challenging except that its slows the pace. Didn’t want to twist an ankle which I eventually did while running down on the way back. Half a dozen people already at the peak around 10.30am. Fortunately it wasn’t windy at the peak, nice view and place to sit and enjoy a sandwich. There are no waterfalls or lakes on this trail but a great workout and the view on the top is worth it! Saw a lot of hikers coming up while on our way down, glad that we made it early, the peak would have been crowded. Reached the trailhead at around 11.45am and the parking lot was completely full.

Great hike overall! Spent the night at enchanted pools in the rain but was still an adventure. Very hard to find trail without AllTrails Pro so it is very recommended. Had to cross a few rivers and found it was best to cross the big waterfall just below the enchanted pools trail.

Good hike. Great workout on the way back. A little too overgrown rn. Wear long sleeves if you still wanna do it.

Beautiful trail. Parking to the right side of the road. To the left will take you up to the falls. Continuing straight takes you to another parking area. A small portion of the trail is covered with debris. Definitely worth the trip. I can’t wait to go back.

First of all, this is a GORGEOUS trail. Incredible lake views and beautiful sections weaving through forest. HOWEVER - I would rate this trail MODERATE not easy. There are some moderate hill climbs as well as long sections where the trail is very rocky which makes balancing more difficult, and makes it very easy to trip or tweak an ankle or knee, especially going downhill. The trail is well developed and easy to follow.

Beautiful, short hike that is moderately busy. Cold at night as it was early in the year over Memorial Day weekend but early enough in the year to avoid any mosquitoes and beautiful with all the snow still there and waterfall into the lake. Gorgeous sunset at night!!

on May 29th, 2020, I came up the north side of Ralston, from Lake Aloha, and was met with considerable snow most all of the way up, less for dispersed areas of rocks that allowed me to walk on solid ground. I was up there mid-day and had some post holing, but in general it was just consolidated snow with 2-3" of punch. Just wore hiking boots. From the summit I took the Ralston Trail back to the Ralston Trail Head, and that was clear of snow. Great hike, great trail, and great rocks up on the summit to sit, lay down, sun bathe and relax!

Hard to locate the trail coming off the Twin Lakes Trail. Definitely recommend bringing a map or downloading ahead of time. Also very rocky and requires some advanced navigation (stream crossing, rock crawling, etc). The pools at the end made it all worth it!

This was a fabulous adventure hike done yesterday. The fuselage difficult to find as it is off trail. Our buddy found it by accident when we were ready to give up. Follow the tellis creek trail from the horse camp. This will bring you close to the fuselage. It is on the right side of the creek and following the all trails map most of the way, you will get there but you must bushwhack after about 1.8 miles, cross the river, easy, then walk following the river. Not easy to find. We all had scrapes from bushwhacking, but what a terrific find. Done yesterday, May 27, 2020. 8 of us with 2 good route finders.

This trail is really easy, anyone can enjoy it! I loved it so much I came back the following week. The waterfalls are breathtaking. It’s pretty heavily trafficked. Lots of dogs on this trail, including my own. It’s 2 miles in, 2 miles out. We took our time getting to the waterfall (about an hour one way). Bring a hat, there isn’t much shade. Beware, it’s easy to get off track, but use your app to get you back on the trail. Both times, I arrived around 10:30 am and was able to find parking, though there were just a few spots left, so come earlier if you can go avoid too many people and to secure a spot.

Gret trail, it has a few detours but just look for the hike symbol on the trees. the water fall it's beautiful, but just be very careful rocks are very slippery and sharp. someone got injured and CHP had to rescue him. unfortunately the young man didn't make it. so please be careful.
