Hard! 8 miles 1 way. plan on camping at upper hell hole when going here. be prepared for a lot of up and down stretches. we called them stairways to hell. when you reach the campground it becomes heaven. spent a week here. lake was way low but plenty of fun with the river. recommend boating to upper hell hole not hiking

Some snow and ice on the trail but totally manageable with shoes that have good traction. Excellent views of Lake Tahoe and Fallen Leaf Lake! A great way to spend a sunny and warm December day. You park at the intersection of the road so there is an extra mile of walking before you get to the actual trailhead.

I too regret not taking a swim here. A lil hard to get to but a great trail for the moderate hiker. At the very end there are beautiful natural water slides you can slide and swim in. Happy trails!

This is one of those trails which are are more about the journey than the destination. The lake itself is pretty meh. There are some granite cliffs next to the lake which are fascinating and very Yosemite-esque. I went on 11/26/17. There was a snowstorm the week before but the trail was clear. It is very hard to follow and there was swampy land and some water on the trail. So make sure you wear trail boots and socks. The ice ponds along the trail at this time were fascinating.
