nice way to spend a few hours outside. Well maintained and fairly level even after going into the forest.

Portions of the trail from Tahoe meadows allow bikes on even days only. However, many parts of the trail are not fit for bikes and needs repair. Also, as of July 24, large portions of the trail are still snow covered making it hard to follow and dangerous. Recommend hiking this trail only!

Great for families with young children, even grandparents. Improved trails with little elevation. Very scenic. Parking is right at trail head. Choice of loops from easy to lite moderate. Short drive from incline village.

I am lucky to have a friend with local knowledge. We started snowshoeing at Tahoe Meadows and shortly turned right into the beautiful woods. In less than a mile we were at Chickadee Ridge at just under 8,700 feet. It has a spectacular view down to Lake Tahoe. And right before the woods opened up at the ridgeline, we stopped to feed the chickadees. With a little patience, they will come eat the seed right out of your hand!

The trail is great for kids, but beware of an aggressive coyote protecting a den. It was paving the trail and would not let hikers pass.

Great hike for families. There are trails of various lengths. We took our three year old on the lower meadows loop it was just over 3 miles easy to see trail and pretty flat and easy to walk. Will definitely to it again.

Attempted in May, but the snow was covering most of the trail. In June the flowers looked more like spring than summer. Recommendation in the summer months is get to an early morning start. You will not only miss the afternoon heat, but you will also miss the crowds to this popular trail. It is beautiful.

Great quick little hike! Lots of great photo opportunities and the wildflowers were beautiful.

Extremely easy hike, but the lush scenery and peaceful meadow make this worth it.

Great hike! The scenery is amazing and the skill level is low.

Fun and easy hike, awesome scenery during sunrise especially. Very relaxing and lovely fresh air! Lots of cute squirrels and birds. I like the creek at the beginning/end also. It's fun to watch the little fish swim by.
