No defined trail beyond short dirt road entrance, more a walk in the woods featuring Bald Eagles, Lake views and Beautiful forest. "Leave no trace ethics" highly suggested.

Hiked this about a month ago with my dog and I really liked the trail. Traffic thins out by the waterfall since most people go to mount rose. There is not a lot of shade though so do this one early,especially if you bring your dog.

It was great. No sign of snow anywhere. Great signage along the trail. I really liked that you get cell coverage the entire way. Especially if you are hiking alone and may need some help.
I am so glad I brought my poles cause you need them!

Nice hike! Mostly uphill

There is still plenty of snow. We made it about 3/4 before the snow was too much and we turned back. Still a lovely hike.

Tough trip from Davis Creek with a full pack, but Rock Lake is nearly full and there is another lake that is not on the map that is full, as well. Didn't go all the way to Tahoe Meadows, as the snow is still pretty high up there. Stayed over night at Rock lake. Beautiful views and no other hikers at all.

Very nice Sierra, Sequoia day hike. Impassable about 1/4 mile past Rock Lake fork due to snowpack. Rock Lake fork also blocked. Had to barefoot across the creek due to high melt. Very nice hike.

This app sent me on a bit of a goose chase trying to get to the start of this hike. Eventually found the trail head in Davis Creek Regional Park (which is right off the 580 or ALT395). Free parking and well marked trail head. Great hike... a real calf burner on the way up. River access is a little over 2 miles in
