Beautiful views! Lots of traffic; even during the middle of the week. Pretty rocky in a few spots. Wear good shoes and pack plenty of water.

Leave early in the a.m. for a better chance of parking, What a great easy hike, rocky in the beginning with mild elevation change. The falls are a good place to dip your toes and eat your lunch. Great views.
We did Eagle Falls first then headed to Cascade.

Much of trail is rocky so need to be agile

Easy hike. Great for the kids.

It was a great hike. Took my 8 year old and while it was shorter, the hills made it a great workout. She made it just fine! Beautiful view, go early to avoid crowds.

Easy, lovely trail. Views of the lake and once you reach the falls you can get right up to them. Plenty of space to hang out by the falls and enjoy the views or even picnic.

Great hike we have older children they loved it beautiful views

this is not a trail for every one

This was a great first trip of the year!! We hiked all the way to Hidden Lake, more peeps at lower lakes. The wind was crazy a couple nites, but it kept the relentless mosquitoes away. As we hiked out on the 6th we passed at least 30+ peeps hiking up. We did pass several dogs OFF leash and a couple on leash. Great family hike, backpacking trip

Lovely early summer hike up a rocky steppe and along a rushing mountain stream, capped by a beautiful waterfall.

So awesome and surprisingly beautiful

I started my hike were the Glen Alpine trail intersects. I was day Hiking. It was challenging. I usually do 2 miles per hour, but I found myself doing 1/2 mile per hour especially through the snow. The beautiful terrain deserves 10 stars but the Tahoe Basin management could help non-local hikers a bit on the Bayview trail. It was very difficult to follow. Be safe Everyone!

Love all of the beautiful views on this trail!

We enjoyed the walk and the amazing views.
A bit rocky at times, walking sticks are very helpful.

Super pretty hike the whole way through! First mile or so is all incline but it’s a relatively smooth trail for a while. Great views!

Just hiked 5 miles round trip and loved the wild flowers and wild life (coyotes, butterflies, dragonflies). We were going to complete the loop but had to turn around 2.5 miles in because of a large body of water that we couldn’t cross due to inadequate footwear and the prevalence of mosquitoes. Gorgeous seasonal creeks, scattered run- down dwellings made this hike a pleasure to hike with our 4 year old. Plenty of shades and majestic redwoods.

A beautiful trail. Great views of the falls along the trails. We sat in the shade by the creek for a light snack. It was wonderful and invigorating.

Stunning views. Initially the rating said “easy” until we put in GPS, then it rated “moderate”.....more accurate. You are hiking up a mountain over boulders and rocks. The Falls are beautiful and it is worth the hike. Wear good hiking shoes and drink water.

short hike in after you pass small camp grounds you will see trails signs. Trail is easy to follow/ marked. Rocky, but not slipper in summer time. Views are absolutely breath taking. You can get in water and rocks in water are not extremely slippery either. LOTS of bugs!!! Wear spray!!! I had some service at Falls too for recording live feed.

Fairly easy and short hike with beautiful views of Cascade Lakes and exploring alongside Cascade Falls. Rocky sections but manageable - some narrow sections.

Amazing views from the peak. The trail to the peaks is left, off the trail that goes down into Desolation. Just follow the stacked rocks. Snow basically gone for the season. Excellent place to have your lunch or just look down into Cascade,Fallen Leaf and Tahoe. Also a great view of Tallac. Trailhead parking goes fast so get there early.

The view is amazing and not a hard hike at all

A fantastic Kid friendly hike! Like most hikes, wear appropriate foot wear. Our 7 and 9 year old had a great time and were able to vear off the trail a little to enjoy the area. There are some areas where you will need to use your hands a little, nothing major. Pack a lunch to relax at the falls area. Its beautiful!

Wouldn't say it's an easy trail as while quite short (1.4m/2.2km roundtrip) almost all of it is rocks and boulders. Don't wear flipflops. The views are breathtaking, a must-do/see

The views are amazing, and it isn't a long hike, but who ever called climbing the boulders in the path an easy hike... Some people aren't that tall!

Great hike with amazing views at the end. Last push to the top was a little tricky due to snow, but just went straight up. Grade is gradual to the end so quite doable.

Beautiful trail; just watch where you step

Great hike with amazing views. There was snow towards the top, but easy to get around.

This is one of the best short hikes in the Tahoe area. Big Bang for small amount of effort. Amazing views. We went later in the early evening and had it all to ourselves. Great views as sun fades in the west and colors hills with a red hue.

easy hike with lots of foot traffic. parked in the campgrounds near the trail head. the falls are awesome, lots of places to sit right by the water.
