Moderate, somewhat long with 1st 3 miles good elevation change. Trail was actually a gravel one lane road. Reasonable amount of shade & technically not challenging at all.

What an amazing hike. Views most of the way and an incredibly good workout due to the high grades. Lovely lake with lots of pretty trout and good quality water (filter before you drink). 10/10 would do it again.

All day hike but well worth it. Pass Hobart Reservoir, Marlette Lake (lots of flowers in area) and Spooner Lake.

This trail has a lot of elevation gain. Finding the right pace is the key to making it up to the lake. I was surprised how many people were fishing at twilight when I made it there. During the walk back down I was able to enjoy all of the great views of Washoe and Carson valley's that I had missed when focusing on just going forward during the trip up. I have always loved the white granite boulders of Tahoe and there are lots of them towards the top.

Great views. The trail is really a fire road so very smooth and easy. I rate it as moderate because of the 2550 feet you have to climb. It is straight up all the ways except for 8/10s of a mile across a ridge. Did I say great views? Spectacular views of Washoe Valley and lake. And slide mountain and Mt Rose, Hobart Reservoir is really lovely surrounded by pine and wildflowers. I don’t fish but there were quite a few anglers. There was water flowing in the creek great for fur friends but I can see it may dry up later in summer. Great hike!

A climb almost all the way. Small Camp site with bear boxes at the lake. Good fishing spot. No signal to start the recording on the way back. But a little faster coming out since it’s almost all down hill. Well traveled and not really trail conditions as it is a road all the way. Lots of horses too.

Look at the grade on the map! It’s like an excitebike jump! Uphill for sure, lake is really pretty, not a ton of people. Easy to follow path. Great view of Washoe, while catching breath.

another trip to one of my favorite local getaways... Still some snow, not too hot. Got to the lake early, but was overrun by people by lunch. Memorial day weekend and first day outta quarantine contributed to this... was still worth the effort!!

Challenging elevation gain and length for a great hike. Following the fire road makes it a bit easier. Beautiful views of the valley and the reservoir is a nice treat at the end. Parts of the fire road are fine gravel.

Backpacked up there. First 2.7 miles are uphill, then a little flat, then uphill again. Real nice campground with tables and bear boxes.

This was amazing! 4 1/2 miles uphill but nearly the entire way with a breathtaking view. Last half mile down to the reservoir. I was lucky and there was no one else at the lake so I could enjoy with only the sounds of fish jumping and birds. Very little snow, just a few patches near the top. No idea why this is labeled for experienced hikers, other than it is physically a challenge (the entire trail was up a dirt road) I would rank this as one of the top hikes I have done!

Love this trail. We stopped only 2 miles in because of snow. Will be back in a few weeks once the snow is melted.

Trail is a service road. Only a few hikers and horses out there. Uphill climb, downhill climb with a small break in between. Beautiful views, nice lake/campground at the top.

The first 2 and last 2 are leg burners, but everything in-between more than made up for it. The lake was beautiful and still. Went on to Red House and circled back around Tank Trail. Made for a wonderful Day and I definitely will be doing Hobart again.

This has great views and follows the road all the way up. It was quite the steady climb with a long flat stretch about half way up. There were some patches of snow, but not bad. we chose to go to the top of Peak #2608. Awesome!
