Cool trail! Make sure to follow the markers and watch for ice. Great for a moderately challenging quick trail run.

Started at 7 and Reached the top by 9:30 great views, calm wind and lots of smoke to view.

Beautiful and diverse! Nice views when you get close to the top. The meadow at the very top was perfect for taking a break and munching on some snacks. Lots of dogs! Horses ride this trail too so watch out for poo!

The hike is definitely not for the faint hearted if you haven't acclimatised to the altitude. The hike from the car park to the waterfall is an easy gradient. From the waterfall to the saddle is a bit of a blower and you will be glad of a short rest to drink water and have an energy snack.The last mile to the summit is a slog especially if you are not used to the altitude. Just pace yourself and you will get there. On the return journey its g of to make use of walking poles as the scree can be quite hazardous. I slipped three times going down from the summit to the waterfall. So be careful. The weather was perfect with clear blue skies, clear air and a pleasant breeze, although I did wear gloves for the first mile of the descent as the breeze coming up the valley was chilled. Not bad for a 65year old who only started high hill hiking a couple of years ago.

Alpine gentian blooming at Third Creek Pond!

Great hike for our first day in Tahoe. We were not adjusted to elevation, and the hike was the perfect intro to Tahoe trails. Trail in great condition with a few slick/muddy spots from snow and ice. Falls were flowing hard, even in October. Highly recommend especially for a starting hike with great views along the way to the falls

Little boring. High starting elevation.

Excellent trail, well maintained. Not to crowded on a Tuesday in October. Very windy for the last .5 mile. Bring a jacket.

I chose to hike to Relay Peak first. Pleasant hike up to Relay Peak. Nice trail/road that was well-defined and easy to walk. There were a few patches of snow, some water for dogs, and some shade. There were still a fair number of butterflies around 9000' near water. Aside from butterflies, I don't think I saw any bugs! Once on Relay Peak, it was extremely windy. GREAT VIEWS! The hike over to Mt. Houghton from Relay Peak was also very windy, but the trails were in good condition. The decent into the canyon was not a challenging hike. However, there were a couple of spots where the trail was narrow with loose soil, and some small patches of snow...but not bad at all!! LOTS of deer. Three huge Mule Deer Bucks ran up the canyon and a herd of about 6 does were farther down the canyon by the meadow. Saw many Gray Jays and Ravens, Juncos and Finch-like birds. My dog found a whole deer leg striped to the bone. Also, in the canyon decending from Mt. Houghton, I really thought I heard a 'meow'. All-in-all, a great hike. It took me about 6 hours to bag both peaks, with a stop for lunch, several snack stops and breaks.

Lots of dogs. Great to not have to dodge bikes. Not difficult but very narrow at times. Some ice on the trail but passable.

Great trail. Wore my Gore-Tex shoes, after reading some reviews of other trails in the area, but no water to speak of. Nice, moderate, up and down trail, but lots of bikes on a Sunday. We will try mid-week next time.

Great for trail runners especially the 1st 5k (to the fall). The fall and waterloo next to the fall are beautiful from May to Aug.

Beautiful trail with amazing vistas. The only complaint we had was that the all trails map didn't get the trail right where where you drop in to Thomas Creek Canyon. The map shows a fork in the trail, in between mile 11 and 12, but there isn't a fork. Just stay on the trail and it will get you where you need to go. Our GPS also told us it was closer to 21 miles. I will definitely be doing this trail again.

weather required turn around halfway.

Great trail a little steep for 3/4 mile then traverses the rim. Gray lake loop is a moderate trail with beautiful scenery. Running water at the lake. Rusty and Cooper loved it.

This is a challenging hike, had to turn around. Although the length of the hike is only 5 miles the elevation change got me. Looking forward to finishing it next time! Had great views of Mt. Rose ski lifts.
