Slow uphill the way out which makes it a nice walk back. Great views of the lake the lower part of the walk. Lots of snow higher up on the trail but all easily passable. Overall great experience for a winter hike!

Gorgeous forest, excellent trails (width of a narrow road, but surfaced like trails), nice little incline going in. Couldn't have been better. What could have been better were Google's directions. Simplify it: look for Tamarack Lodge on your left. Turn in and go left when the driveway forks. You quickly enter state park land. Drive about .2 miles to the iron gate. Park & go. I would go again tomorrow, and the next day!

Good easy hike. Relatively flat. Did first week of June and there was still a considerable amount of snow on the trail but hikeable. Good views of meadows.

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.

Still snow on the trail, very full creek you need to cross as well, can be done :)

I was a little confused by this hike, and I think it was the directions to get there the AllTrails app provided us. The directions (we came from Basecamp Hotel in Tahoe City) led us to a neighborhood cul-de-sac that provided no trailhead marker or sign of any sort... There was just a pathway that looked "hike-ish," so we started from there and ended up having to backtrack. It was a nice woodsy hike, though, with some peekaboo lake views in one section. It was very flat and an easy walk, but no trail makers along the way.

Nice woods hike but came too late in season (September) for flowers or flowing water.

I expected more views but it's mostly Forrest view. There was one short part of the trail where you could view the lake through the trees. It was petty shady and that was nice. I did stop short of the top so don't know what the view may have been from there. It was pleasant. The only animal I sighted was two chipmunks! Glad I didn't see bears!

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.

My kids and I had a nice time walking this trail. There were a few slight inclines, but nothing to difficult. There are trail maps along the way, so even though we didn't follow the route exactly we didn't get lost. At time we did see partial views of the lake & the forest is beautiful.

Super fun on a bike! Lots of quick and fast single track throughout the area. Pick and chose. Not technical or too hilly. Great way to get warmed up for harder trails. Maps and trail signs everywhere. Hard to get lost. I will be riding again soon.

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

Great trail. Constant uphill from town to trailhead (3miles), which was a pretty tedious cardio (for me at least) but once we were up on the dirt trails we had a blast! Tons of connector options that all lead into each other. Went up to the scenic overlook for great views. Well-marked along the trails, well maintained.

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.

Fun, moderately easy trail. If you hike up from Ward Canyon, there's a bit of a moderate uphill hike to reach the meadows (there are several, linked meadows). If you want a 98% level hike, you can find a trailhead at the very end of Silver Tip Drive. Just walk down the fire road a short ways (1/4 mile?), keep right... And then look for a path to the right... It's just a few hundred feet down this path to the first meadow. Walk along the edge of the meadow ...at the end of this meadow swoop to the left (follow the 'pavers') to head towards the other meadows. There are many wonderful, meandering walks throughout this area.

Hiked from Tahoe City to Ward Creek and back, about 5 miles each way. The Tahoe Rim Trail follows the Truckee River for about a quarter mile or so, then starts climbing up the canyon above Granlibakken, passing just above the zipline course. The trail passes a trail junction (down to Granlibakken) and continues climbing. There is another trail junction at the two mile marker. At this point, the trail levels out for the next two miles. Page Meadows are in this two mile stretch. Just beyond Page meadows, the trail follows some logging roads down to Ward Canyon Road.

turn in just west of seeing the Tamarack lodge sign, and go back past the Tahoe Landscaping to find parking. We followed by the download, which means going up to the right as you face the hill. A shorter walk might start by going up the left side. Most of the elevation gain (total is 6300 start to 7000 top) happens in the first 10 minutes (and likewise at the end if you follow the 17 point download guide.

We enjoyed having the guide, and as this was our first EveryTrail guide ever, didn't realize the wealth of information and description in it. We took our own Garmin GPS along to WayMark each intersection...but the EveryTrail iPhone marking/tracing was fine...there was at least a minimum of AT&T 3G/E coverage on this trail.

The 'pond' by the dam (point 12?) is not that charming, but there are nicer meadow views and rocks to have a picnic further along the trail. THANK YOU for putting together the guide. Hope this stays a quiet park for a long time. We did pass a fair number of mountain bikers and a few other hiker/walkers...but in general, we had it mostly to ourselves.
