I thought we could drive most of the way up, not the case. This trail was not enjoyable at all. it just kept going up and was even rougher on the toes coming down. it was hot and we ran out of water. this trail was even rough on my 1 year old lab. I would never do this hike again. wish we could have seen the lake.

Great little find with good fishing, despite the restrictions. If camping, do utilize the bear boxes- we were lucky enough to see one bear amble through the campground. The climb in is steep, but once there you've got picnic tables, pit toilets, ample water sources (do filter), and bear boxes,making this a nice goal for newer backpackers.

This is a difficult trail. Bring a hat and a lot of water. One of those trails you have to be in shape for. Great views and you won't see a lot of people for sure.

Super brutal heat and sun for this hike today. I ran out of water about a mile from the car on the return trip. My fault for not bringing a filter as there are small creeks all along the way. The lake is amazing! Something you have to see to appreciate.

My husband and I took the trail today all the way to the lake and the roads are clear as well as gorgeous! The lake is beautiful and unspoiled. Also a clean restroom at the lake. Although very tough and uphill all the way for 5 miles it was worth the effort. Will make this a regular for us!

On Memorial Day Friday the last mile or so was completely covered with snow, but we made it to the lake just fine. 80% sheet of ice. Cant wait to come back when there is a little more land. Beautiful hike. 2:40 up and 2:15 back to Lakeview With 30# packs. 41 species of bird with 3 unidentified

Approached from the carson city trail head. Amazing views at times, which is completely worth the trip. It has incline for the majority of the trip, which shouldn't be taken lightly! Bring lots of water and a walking stick! Hobart reservoir is quit nice, with multiple areas to fish from (trout). Would recommend to any traveller looking for a decent challenge and serenity.

Beautiful, with many awesome views and amazing amounts of nature, but takes a good amount of time and you must come prepared. Gets extremely isolated and cell service is spotty, certainly a trail that requires experience and a group. But very fun and worth the time if you prepare properly

From the comments here I see all of them went from the Carson city side. You can also get there from Spooner lake going to Marlette lake then onto Hobart reservoir. It is about an 18 mile hike round trip.

You can start at the bottom of the canyon and enjoy the 6 mile climb or drive most of the way with a high clearance, 4-wheel drive and hike the last bit. You'll enjoy beautiful views.
