great hike.

Very difficult finding the trailhead, first because there is no trail named Page Meadow Loop, second because the trail marker is hidden between two trees on the side of the road, third Google maps gave incomplete directions. To get to the loop you have to hike 2 miles up the Tahoe Rim Trail from the north side of Ward Creek Blvd. To find Ward Creek Blvd. turn up Pineland from Hwy 89, take Twin Peaks to Ward Creek Blvd. The elevation gain is steady. There is more than one meadow. We could not find signage indicating the start of the loop, yet there are a number of splits from the TRT, and the All Trails app did not help.

following the Tahoe Rim trail was easy because of the tree markers. But we had trouble orienting ourselves to find the loop option back from Page Meaxows. So we just retraced our steps from Page Meadow.

I love running by the river. Sealed path is nice to get in a rhythm and enjoy.
I ran it as a there and back (about 14-15 miles). WARNING if you do and start in squaw the last two miles will be up hill. I didn't realize until it was too late

Great trail, excellent views. The Monday hike had very few hikers on the trail.

Awesome climb up with amazing views and the climb is crazy hard but does get technical but is worth the ride down. Looking forward o doing it again.

We had a great time on this bike ride. My 2.5 year old son, my husband, and myself (7 months pregnant) did about 1.5 miles of it before we turned around due to rain. We weren’t sure how to find it though and where to park. We asked a local and they just built a new bridge from the transit center parking to the trail. So park at the transit center and you’re set!

Nice approach, varied scenery and wonderful views at the top. Well worth every inch. Wonderful varied fungi along the way. Great little shop...found fresh garlic bulbs, fun gifts and a great shroom fold out chart. Definitely on my “do again list”.

GREAT Hike although I got lost for a few minutes.

Needs a little better marking.

So many options on this trail. Not too many people not too long but u can extend it if you want to go further. Pretty trees. Beautiful meadows and scenery. Cool off road trail for cars too if you want to come back later. Light traffic during the week

Very nice easy hike with awesome views

We took the kids today one is 6 and the other was in a pack they both did great.

Did this from Tahoe City to Brockway Summit as our groups first overnight trip. Watson Lake is the only real water source on this section. We were lucky enough to not encounter too unruly car campers at Watson Lake, unlike some other reviewers on other sites. Watson Lake sites have bear boxes in case your not wanting to bring a bear cannister on this section. Overall, great trip with great views!

Horrible night camping at Watson lake. Bunch of drunk people fighting. Nice camping spots tho. Id avoid camping there if you are thru hiking or section hiking. ✌️

Fantastic trail!! We ride from River Ranch down to Sunnyside for lunch then back. pretty good ride for the whole family with beautiful scenery!

Great hike! Thankful to have this app to guide us at the many forks in the path.

Difficult to get to the trailhead due to road construction. The parts of the trail not on the TRT were poorly signed, and we met several hikers who were bewildered as to where on the trail they were. The TRT section was rather unremarkable, but the meadows were gorgeous.

As my first segment of the TRT, every step was full of adventure. Around mile 5, I ran into a smokey area where someone had a small fire that caught the pine needles and other mulch in the dirt on fire. When I found it, the dirt had burnt into a 6 foot wide by 12 foot long area. I called it in and moved on. There were a few wonderful vista's of the lake, but even more of the Truckee area valleys. So Much Fun!

Nice and flat when you access it from up in the neighborhood. A little muddy in the meadows but not bad. Lots of tiny wildflowers.

on Truckee River Trail

Beautiful views of the truckee river. This is more for biking then for hiking. My kids handled the path pretty well.

Great trail for hiking and mountain biking. If you are hiking, definitely be aware of mountain bikers coming around corners. This is a relatively easy hike in terms of grade, and the views from the top are worth it. We went dlightly off course, and followed a sign to "Lakeview Trail", which went up a much steeper grade for maybe 3/4 of a mile. Totally worth it!

Fun hike for our family, we took a few shortcuts to make it a 4 mile hike. Not too strenuous for our Michigan group experiencing this higher altitude.

Good hike and it is well marked. Nice forested area with several open meadows.

This hike as posted will require your GPS and all trail map to keep on the correct path as it isn’t marked well. The southern portion of the loop is very boggy and lots of insects. Not much in the way of views, more of a hike in the trees. Also, parking limited at the end of rawhide street and not sure it is legal anyway.

Okay for a bike, not so much for walking. Next to the highway, not so close to the river.

We had a tough time finding the trailhead. First we parked and walked to the left and got swarmed with mosquitoes. We got back in the car to leave and then decided to pull off the road further down and walk up to the right, up a dirt road. It didn’t look to be a trailhead but we were ready to hike!!

The only marking we saw was for the Tahoe Rim Trail, not sure where the other Trail was for the loop portion of this. We followed along, path wasn’t too strenuous. The meadow was “mosquito meadow”! We had a few layers of clothing and bug spray and were still getting bitten. Still very wet, muddy as the snow is almost all melted at this point but just very swampy.
There’s probably wayyyyyyy better hikes in the Tahoe area.

Absolutely beautiful. Loved everything about this hike. Trail was a bit harder than we expected mostly due to climbing hills and the elevation. My husband and I are very active but from below sea level altitude.

There is still a good amount of snow on this trail, but it’s beautiful and doable without snow shoes right now. We saw some very fresh bear tracks in the snow (!) in the meadows, which made us all a bit on edge for the rest of the hike!
