Super wildflowers!! Nice moderate but long hike. Did not summit, the last couple hundred yards were a little too sketchy for me, but would be completely doable for others.

hiked on May 27th 2017 to the bridge. hit snow patches 1 mile into the hike and had multiple creek crossings using fallen trees. 2 miles in route was completely covered in snow. Made it to the bridge and turned around because of snow.

Very beautiful walk through forests and meadows, took the Stanford Rock trail and enjoyed beautiful vistas including Lake Tahoe and south toward Sonora Pass. It's late June but still snow patches at top (8500' +/-) and with warm weather the bugs are out. The incline is moderate with no real steep areas...to Stanford Rock and back is about a 13 mile hike from the Ward Canyon Twin Peaks Trailhead.

Fantastic trail with beautiful scenery. Not overly challenging but in snowshoes it was perfect

Nice walk off the paved bike trail and away from crowds, pavement and cars. Dogs good on leash. Lots of little side trails not showing up on here. Nice meadow in the Park.
