Did this trail 2 days ago June 29. Steep up and down, hiked in good trail running shoes, hiking sticks may be useful for some on the way down. Good climb to the top with amazing views all the way. A bit chilly at the top, bring a lightweight long sleeves for the top. Also logged more then 4 mi round trip.

Nice trail with great views and a good size waterfall at the end - supplied by melted snow so currently running . Not too busy mid day today. 5 mi if you climb to the top on the falls. Didn’t have time today but another 3 mi gets you to Mtn Rose summit - next trip perhaps .

Absolutely beautiful waterfall! The trail is really nice too. My friend tracked her distance on her iwatch and I used my Fitbit, both showed this hike to be almost 6 miles round trip.

The trail was great! Good for people who love dogs and amazing water fall

Beautiful wildflowers in the meadow still the last week of June.

Spectacular views start early on this trail. Loved the hike but my Garmin recorded 4.6 miles total, not 3.8. Easy trail to follow and quite a climb. Totally worth it.

Loved the trail! The wildflowers are just starting to bloom (not a ton yet). There are pretty babbling brooks and bridges and alpine forest views. We had our 1 year old in a carrier and she liked hearing the birds chirp. The trail was short but long enough you felt like it was worth the drive up there. There weren’t many people there at all (though it was early in the morning). All in all a great family friendly walk to add to the list.

What a beautiful little hike!

It is not hard for me and my dog Mochi, she is small breed Shihtzu and she enjoys it. Lots dirt and she gets dirty easily. Many hiking trails along this road Mount Rose highway, and we will do one at a time.

I love this trail but so does everyone else. There were so many people that it made it less enjoyable.

Trail took us 35 minutes-some shade, nice green meadow views, and a few babbling brooks. Very flat ...there were a few wild flowers .

I am backpacking the TRT in sections and I planned to do Mt Rose Summit to Spooner (25 mi.) over the course of 2.5 days. I parked in the parking lot right at the summit and crossed the highway waking in on Mount Rose Summit Ski Rd (the road that leads to Mt Rose Campground); there is a trail head there. I couldn’t park at the Tahoe Meadows parking lot because the gate was locked. I began at 3:30 in the afternoon so that I would cover 8-9 miles and then set up camp for the night. I did it that way because camping inside Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park (between Tunnel Creek Road and Spooner Summit) is only allowed in designated campgrounds, and I didn’t want to hike 16 miles to get to Marlette Peak Campground. So at 8.7 miles I found a nice spot to set up for the night on the east side of the trail. The next morning my friend and I hiked about 8 miles to get to Marlette Campground (filling up our water at Twin Lakes). Make sure to take the Christopher Loop detour, even though you may be tired from just climbing 700’ it is worth the extra effort. It’s a great place to kick off your boots and have a snack. On the trail it is not called “Christopher’s Loop” the sign says “Sand Harbor Lookout.” When you get to Marlette peak you either go right or left. We opted for the easier route and turned left (the East face of Marlette Peak). Good thing we did other wise we would not have crossed a small stream flowing about a 1/4 mile just before the Campground since we did not know that the water pump had been broken for over a year. Some workers were actually trying to fix the pump the day we were there and said they replaced all the top components of the pump but were still unable to draw water. The problem they said was down at the bottom of the well and they were going to have to do some more research on how to fix it. All that to say, don’t count on water at the pump, hike back to that stream I mentioned. We arrived at the Campground at 1pm which was great because we were able to set up camp, ditch our gear and hike down to the lake for a swim. It was so refreshing and well worth the 1-mile, 500’ climb back up to camp. The morning of the third day we finished off the 9 miles of the trail by noon and went into Incline Village for a much craved, well deserved burger and a beer at Inclined Burgers. It was an amazing trip!

Beautiful hike! Walked down to through the gorgeous green meadow, partly on the wooded path, and continue down to the woods until we hit lower price lake. At first we couldn’t find it, so we took her shoes off and walked across the stream which was super cold. But well worth it because we came upon the lake and it was gorgeous so we had it all to ourselves. To get back, we crossed the rocks right next to the Dam and took the dryer path back.

Really quick hike. Fairly flat, but a nice quick hike up to a beautiful waterfall. I started at 1 on a Thursday, so thought it would be crowded, but it really wasn’t bad. I was the only one at the falls for a while. I will do this again, and next time start earlier to get to the mount rose peak!

Wonderful hike, very steep, possibly the steepest I’ve done in Tahoe. It’s straight up the whole way, so only go if you’re ready for a challenge. Bring plenty of water and a lunch or snacks to replenish your energy. I’ve hiked Tallac before which is much longer and has an amazing view. But the view from Rifle Peak for me is on par, if not more impressive. Easily one of the most beautiful hikes in Tahoe. Highly recommend bringing trekking poles, especially on the way down or you are likely to slip. If you see any good walking sticks on the way back, pick those up and use them, the trail is treacherous.

This is a really big trail that goes way further than most people use if for. The switchbacks to reach the top of the canyon are pretty steep, but the view is worth it! Saw a bear downy the river despite all of the people. Really neat rock formations in the back of the canyon.

This is a great trail! Walking from the highway down the wooden walkway was a pretty as it comes. There are a ton of people hiking near the highway. This trail is a great way to leave them behind. There is a sign at the top of the descent the says the elevation change to upper price lake is 1250 foot. When I went, the was no snow to speak of on the trail. The trail was under water the last 10 yards from the lake. There were lots of small streams for the pooch to drink from. I had a blast! And was happy that I made it back to the car!

On the trail by 6:15am on Monday. Trail looks great. An insignificant amount of snow. This is always a busy trail so I decided to try it early in the morning and on a weekday. Had the whole place to myself so I decided to summit Mt. Rose.

This was a fairly easy hike. Going up to the loop was not bad at all. I suggest parking on the side of the road since coming down the loop you have to walk all the way around back up the the parking lot. There was some shade however there were parts that were completely in the sun. Overall, it was a fun hike. Well worth it!

Nice hike. Took me a little while to find the ridgeline to follow to Tamarack Peak, but well worth it. There was nobody else on this particular trail today, very peaceful. Just a few snow patches remaining with a decent sized pile at the top of the hike as of 6/21/2020. Can see both Tahoe to the southwest and the desert valleys to the east. Not a super easy trail to follow until the Tamarack ridgeline becomes a little more prominent.

This is a great easy trail with beautiful views and close proximity to Reno. For those reasons, it is very heavily trafficked and busy. We did this a few days ago, and there are still a few places with snow on the trail but nothing even close to difficult. The waterfall is really flowing right now with all of the snowmelt coming down. I suggest getting an early start to beat some of the crowds, and bring a windbreaker as this area is known for being gusty!

Mt Rose summit to Tunnel Creek connector. 14 miles with 30 lb overnight packs. Very warm day! Beautiful segment of the TRT! Nice trail- not technical. Steep DG switchbacks down to Tunnel Creek exposed sunshine. Best part is beers at the end!!

Perfect weather, perfect trail. On the long side for a day hike, but the frequent world class views make up for it. No snow (tiny patches).

We had a gorgeous hike but there was still snow in a few spots on the path and that made it muddy as well. One of our favorite hikes for the view and we are from San Diego. Beat hike we did here.

This trail is beautiful this time of year. The creek bottoms are lush and green, the northern slopes still have plenty of wildflowers, and there are tons of birds. Doing the loop up Thomas Creek with a cut over by Dry Pond, then back along White's Creek is also a good one if you just want to get out for a few hours of hiking. I also would recommend this for beginner hikers as there's a moderate amount of elevation gain to Dry Pond and plenty of switchbacks.

Stunning in middle of June. No problems with snow. We couldn’t follow the trail as it was portrayed on the app but were able to enjoy the area via well-marked signs (Upper, Middle, and Lower Meadow trails as well as an intersection with the Tahoe Rim Trail). Absolutely wonderful walk and couldn’t recommend more.

Excellent trail for families. It was a beautiful hike up and down. The views of the lake and the waterfall were so beautiful.
