I hike this trail to the bottom of the waterfall and then up to the top of the waterfall at least 2 times a week. Love it!

Very easy flat trail, good for all ages.

Great uphill rather tough. Beware if vehicles and horses. Great views

Beautiful beach, easy to get to.

nice trail of ~2 miles.

A nice 2 mike or so hike. The waterfall is really nice. It’s in a steep valley under tree cover. True shade and the spray make it cool and refreshing to see. The loop trail gives good views or Carson City. Decent elevation gain but never too steep. The trail almost touches the tree line and you can see some trees still with scars from and old fire.

Great place to go when you don't have a lot of time and do want to enjoy great views of the lake.

Nice Little hike. My wife and I are in our mid-60's and we walked up to the falls and backtracked to the loop trail. The hike took about 70 minutes. It is worth the trip.

relaxing easy trail by the pastures and river plenty of wildlife viewing

Nice walk , good pictures for adventure album.

Great walk along the shore of Lake Tahoe. Despite there being a lot of people around, we also saw a lot of birds (osprey, common merganser, white-headed woodpecker).

A definite must in the early spring snow runoff. Easy access.

Short hike but I like to loop it around and take the old King’s Canyon Rd a bit on foot and then join the main waterfall big loop, turning it into about 5.5 miles. A bit of an incline up the old road and you’ll want to stay alert due to the 4 wheeling but it adds a nice workout to the otherwise short trail. The waterfalls are very nice, just stay out of the water, it’s the water source for Carson.

Nice little trail

We didn’t quite make it to the reservoir as we turned back due to snow a little past the water tanks. The views were beautiful out to the Carson Valley below. It is a steady climb (but I’m 70) and we determined to come back in a few weeks. This would NOT be a good summer hike - I’d drive up a different route. But there is plenty of water for the dogs in a creek most of the way. Can’t wait to try it again in the Spring and Fall and see the lake and fish.

Easiest little trail! Amazing with snow!

I looking at the water fall

The hike to the falls is quite short and very easy. The falls themselves were absolutely beautiful! We spent a long while just hanging out there and admiring it. We were about to head back to the parking lot when we saw an even higher trail so we decided to take it. AMAZING views and lots of fun. It can get a little steep and scary, considering half of the trail is right on the edge of the cliff.... but amazing nonetheless. All in all we were here for about 3 hours

fun trail for dogs! beautiful views of the lake.

I did this trail the last weekend of October. The fall foliage was absolutely beautiful as were the views. The fall temperatures make this hike much more pleasant than in the summer. This is not a trail to do when you are out of shape or feeling less than energetic. No, you can not drive and the label of "Hard" should be noted, as it is.

Great hike!

Excellent trail! excellent sunrises!

love this walk on a summer morning! Wear your bug spray! Watch for the beavers.... enjoy the sunrise!!
