Excellent for mountain biking, it is the best I have visited at the moment, very well maintained. Double suspension bicycles are recommended for greater enjoyment.

Awesome trail for a short trail run, I lapped it twice just because it was so short but it has a bunch of quick ups and downs for really getting a good workout in. I think the trail is primarily for mountain biking but it was still fun! The trail is really well kept.

Great trail for trail running. No crazy elevation changes. I ran 10 miles out there today. You can just go and go and create your own adventure. Really pretty forest but not a big enough wow factor for 5 stars. I was out on a super rainy day and didn’t see another human in a couple of hours. I did startle a big deer when I came around a corner and it was a good reminder that there is wildlife in those woods. Felt like I was out in the woods but never too far from civilization.

Was very surprised to find this gem in Richmond. Decent little trek and if you’re into it-some fun little geocaches spread throughout.

Beautiful sights! Amazing trail that was easily accessible for kids and adults alike. Bring water for furry friends.

Not as hard as others are making it out to be (not technical at all - I would feel comfortable bringing dogs or kids). Solidly moderate with a good bit of elevation gain. The final switchbacks are a bit overgrown. Nice and shady, secluded with few other folks on the trail. A lovely time.

Ann’s is one of my favorite trails to run, and although you will be sharing with some bikes it’s a great area to explore. I like to come up Bonneville Shoreline Trail from Steep Mountain Park and then connect to Maple Hollow for some great views, or the section that goes through Little Valley is nice. Potato Hill to Peakview Trailhead is also a great section. You can do all or part, connect to many different trails along the way, and there are restrooms and water at Potato Hill Trailhead (about halfway) if you follow the map as outlined here. Ann’s has sections that aren’t very shaded but for the most part you are in taller scrub oak and it feels foresty and partially shaded. No particular destination but a nice little journey.

Was a great trail! A few rises and dips through out. Not too rocky or muddy. Sandy areas. Trail was clear to follow. Only saw two people on our way back to the car. Several open meadows along the way. No bugs. Rained but with water proof gear it was still great!

Good walking trail Lots of shade. Easy walk.

Well, it’s a Sequoia not a Redwood tree. But still impressive nonetheless. Lots of mosquitoes out tonight. The road is doable but bumpy. RAV4 did great. Upsetting to see trash and TP at the campsites near the cabin. Please respect others & our lands, and adhere to Leave no Trace.

Took a Jeep trip up to base of falls. Great weather today, lots of vehicles and lots of hikers walking up.

Great trail. Moderate trail where you can go as hard or easy as you would like to go!

on Buffalo Park Trail

Beautiful park with plenty of trails to explore. Great views of the mountains nearby. Sections are out in the open, no shade. My dog enjoyed it immensely. Completed Sept. 14, 2019.

Mind the markings. It’s easy to get turned around and cell signal is very poor. Trails are well marked, but there are lots of intersections. It’s a good idea to take a picture of the map before you head in. Also keep a sharp eye out for mountain bikers!

Fun trail, a bit of gnar in a few places. The roots and rocks to keep you attentive and the flow sections are fast. True to name, had a doe standing in the middle of trail as I rounded a corner. Worth a trip there to ride.

I have been doing the easy trails with ease at the WWC and decided to kick it up a bit. This was quite a jump from the easy trails as it has a lot of technical rocky/root filled climbs. I found myself pushing numerous sections of this course. But you don’t get better without a challenge.

This was my first “moderate” trail that I’ve ever done. And I definitely worked for it. I have recently lost over 85 pounds and so I am trying to get more active. This was pretty difficult for me in certain parts, especially going up in elevation and going down on my knees. But nothing that I couldn’t handle! I’m so glad that I did it. The leaves were changing and we were able to see the beautiful Kokanee salmon swimming upstream. I took my 12-year-old son and he was able to do it with “moderate“ whining. There wasn’t a whole ton of shade, but in early September weather wasn’t too bad. The parking lot was packed due to all the kayakers so make sure you get there early and carpool so you have a place to park. Will definitely do again next year!

The beginning is tough. Steep switchbacks and you incline up the mountain. But once you peak, it’s a gradual decline. Full of beautiful views and lots of trees to provide shade.

on Tejas Trail

Hiked from Tejas campground to far side of Sawyer - about 10 miles out and back with some minor detours to walk on the riverbed. Some shade and a nice variety of terrain. Saw only two parties of hikers on a Sunday morning. Some elevation change but moderate and in only 3 or 4 places on the trail.

I took my 3 year old and my 1 year old in my osprey pack. My three year old made it the whole way, even with the elevation gain in such a short distance. Fun little trail to kill some time especially if you have kids, and a definite trail to mark off your list.

Awesome for kids and to convince your non-hiking friends to go on a hike with you! Will definitely be back and loved the history. The staff at the visitor center are AMAZING and were just the best with my son. Hooked him up with a junior ranger activity book and I’ve never seen him more interested in a trail! Thank you so much!

Beautiful views. Was perfect for my 3 and 5 years old kids.

There’s some really nice vista points as others have mentioned where the whole lake comes into view. Unless you’re looking to go onto the Tahoe Rim Trail, I’d say a good turnaround point would be the wood bridge + waterfall. (It’s a pretty small waterfall). From that point, you’re going more inland towards the rim, so you lose sight of Lake Tahoe and the end of the trail doesn’t really offer any great views. A good deal of climbing given the 3.2 miles uphill. The path is shared with mountain bikes. Trekking poles were helpful for descent. There is parking right by the trailhead, I parked in the lot underneath the gondolas and walked the 0.3 miles to the trailhead. Total round trip for me was 6.7 miles in 2hrs and 54 minutes.

Pretty views and not too challenging. Not too hot for mid September! moderately trafficked. Make sure to bring plenty of water if you have dogs, there was almost none in the creek.

Lovely trail mostly in shade with little frog hopping across the trail and some kind of deer. Beware: as others have noted at the northern edge of the trail by Sunrise Lake, the trail is not passable so you have to go off trail and find your own way or take a detour that will add time to your walk. Lovely lovely trail though.
