Easy hiking trail. Plenty wide. Fairly consistent elevation changes throughout the trail. The harbor at the end is stunning.

Great hike. Parking lot is open but small, we got there at 9 am on a Sunday and were fine but when we got back down around 12:30, it was overflowing. Hike is mostly shaded, has a good steady include, great views of Tahoe, and a gorgeous quiet lake at the top. Saw ~10 other people total on the entire hike.

Really nice hike—challenging but doable. The uphill is serious, but not excruciating. The downhill honestly hurt a bit more on the feet and thighs! Great view of Tahoe, awesome rocks, and lots of shady spots to rest. Weird low thumping/howling sound, would love to know what it was if anyone knows! Would recommend for a nice challenge!

Great trail! I used it as a link to the Tahoe Rim Trail at Spooner so I also took the upper Clear Creek Trail. There is a tree down on the upper trail. I would recommend doing the lower trail only during the morning as it’s completely exposed and dry. I left at 5:20 am and the sun rise was amazing over the desert hills.

Love this hike! On our way down, we heard a strange “whomping” sound that was loud and slow and rhythmic. If anyone knows what this might have been, I would love to know. It sounded a little like a Grouse drumming, but it never sped up. Thoughts? A few in our party freaked out thinking it was a predator of some sort

Fun trail - an easy loop. We diverted into the ditch run off for some cooling off and hung out at the river and took some great landscape pics - so green. We did the full Mexican Ditch route on the way back and the bugs were horrible for one stretch - probably wouldn’t be so bad in other seasons.

Very uphill the way up; downhill the way down. My toes hurt in my hiking shoes from the decline. Beautiful lake view.

Got here pretty early (6:30) and was the only one on the trail for a while. Eerily quiet except for the sounds of coyotes howling (which was equal parts terrifying and awesome) but a peaceful walk nonetheless. Went to the beginning of the foresty area before I turned back. Definitely more of a mountain bike trail than a hiking trail - would rate it as an easy hike though.

Beautiful lake at the top. No easy hike though. Very high elevation so if you’re not used to high altitude, you’ve been warned!

Be prepared for steep hills, wind, and incredible sights. So worth the climb! Also be mindful heading back - it's easy to miss the trail back to Chimney Beach.

Reviews were right—nice steep climb levels to great views and a rewarding end at the Lake. If you are not familiar with the trails keep your phone handy as trails cross this one towards the top. Trail head is to the right as you pull into the parking lot. Parking lot is now open.

The walk down to these beautiful beaches is quick on the broad, wide path. Beaches are small and there were both hikers and boaters enjoying them. We managed to find a quiet, shady spot for lunch on some boulders.

From high desert to towering pines this is one incredible way to experience the eastern slopes of the sierras!

Very beautiful trail but I would rate it on the hard side of moderate. Uphill for 3 miles. The beautiful views of Marlette Lake and Lake Tahoe are worth it.

This trail is amazing! We turned it into a loop and the elevation change was in basically the first 3 miles. Would do again.

Great hike with cooler conditions (60’s). A cloudy day with wind. First 2.5 miles is an elevation gain of about 1800 feet. Nice lake with good places to enjoy the views. Good views of Lake Tahoe as well. Would recommend this hike!
