Great hike near Ski Run blvd. Great views. Up and down rolling hills none too difficult. I would hike it again.

Difficult parking at the trail head. I wouldn't try this in the winter months when the trail is covered in snow. I did this is March and had a tough time following the map. Went off trail for most of it. Enjoyed a long break at the top with a little view of the lake. So nice to breath the fresh air.
First solo hike in a while.

Nice I close to SLT hike. More of a walk. Be sure to hit one of the rock outcroppings you get to first for good views. Otherwise more of a forest walk. burn and first Mgt. Make sure you make it to the stream 3/4 way in!

Great trail with some spectacular views throughout various parts (especially the beginning). Pretty easy and kid friendly with the exception of a couple more strenuous inclines, but they are few and far between. NOTE: Wear shoes that you don't mind getting dirty/dusty!

Nice hike ! Very close to the Hotels near Heavenly. Not too rugged. Perfect for kids. Some beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay.

This trail is awesome. So many options and it goes past a sweet creek. I recommend this trail for anyone looking to get out into the woods and explore.
