An incredibly beautiful hike! The wildflowers are blooming, waterfall flowing, and snow is gone. The first section of the hike to the waterfalls is very easy! The second section is quite challenging. A lot of elevation gain with steep hills. I recommend hiking poles. There are sections with loose rock and dirt. Well worth it when you get to the top! Give yourself time to acclimate to the high elevation. And btw the bathrooms at the parking are closed!

We have done this trail 3 times over the last year or so. The trail conditions near the top have degraded over that period of time, but remain usable for most high clearance vehicles. Most recent trip was 2 weeks ago in a Jeep TJ with lockers front and rear. We had a second vehicle following that was a brand new stock Tacoma. The stock Taco was able to make it but did bang up his step bars a little. Pick the right lines and it's still ok for most vehicles.

We've done this twice on bikes and would do it again any day or night. Perfect views of lake mead and the tunnels are great. At the end there a a restroom, water fountain, and picnic table with gazebo. Perfect first date destination.

there wasn't much to see.

Amazing wildflowers this time of year (mid-July)! Fairly easy hike, would be a great family day trip. There are lots of switchbacks so you hardly even notice the elevation gain!

beautiful waterfall at the end. very hard to find the entrance. We have done this two years in a row and its one of our fav spots. We spent the whole day down there. There was no waterfall this year, but still a pool and gorgeous scenery. We did this with two kids, ages 5 and 7. They did great.

I did this trail again today, and didn't pass even one other person! It took me 7 hours up and back, and that was only stopping for a few photos at the lake- no breaks! I was surprised that there is still a little water in the lake, and will post photos. The trail is in decent shape at the moment, no mud or snow, but this is a pretty strenuous hike, I must admit! One that I will likely do annually, but pushes my limits to do more often. There were many deer in the upper elevations, but thankfully no bears today!

Definitely felt out of the city with amazing views, took the South route but didn’t make it to the peak due to the trail being washed out.

Hot in July but great views

It’s for the most part all up I have done this one several times always great but it feels like it never ends

Fragrant! The wild flowers on the trail are in bloom and smells amazing! Take the hikers only track to the right when facing the sign. It's the trail that would lead directly to the waterfalls. Then, it gets more arduous from there because of the elevation! If you're not worried about the altitude, then by all means...."Charge" the mountain!

Starts off nice and easy stroll for about 3 miles then you hit the awesome waterfall! After that is all up hill from there. me and my wife are just getting into hiking and it was by far the most challenging hike we have done so far but well worth it for the view of Truckee, Reno, Sparks, Carson City and of course Lake Tahoe. It took us about 5 hours at a decent walking pace. We stopped at the waterfall for about 10 mins and 30 mins at the summit. Lots of flowers along the way, a few creeks to skip across and even ran into a hungry marmot and chipmunks that greeted up at the summit. Weather was about 75 all day and only a little windy towards the summit. Defiantly bring lots of water, hiking shoes and a stick or poles if you have them. Enjoy!

Absolutely fabulous view!

Absolutely stunning location to watch the sun rise over the lake. Also helps that very few other folks wake up that early, so you have the point mostly to yourself.

The views are breathtaking (as is the elevation gain). As mentioned before, it's heavily used by mountain bikers.
On the way back, we decided to take the Tahoe Rim Trail to BP (Diamond Peak - 8,540 feet) and then the Incline Flume Trail (it will add an extra 9 miles to the hike, but it's totally worthwhile, with unique views of Washoe Lake.

Was easy and everything I expected. I would just not make the mistake at going at 11am. I caught that high noon sun and it was brutal. I would definitely recommend going in the early morning.

This hike is perfect anytime of day due to the shade the trees provide. It is a mellow climb and beautiful. If you drive past the first parking lot and go further up the dirt road there is additional parking. Starting closer to the top allows for different views and less people.

We hiked down the main path to the beach. The water is crystal clear and beautiful. There are rocks that we swim out to and jump off of... The water was cool but the sun was warm so we sunned ourselves like lizards

Really great hike. The switchbacks on the front end are pretty grueling, but they lead to some amazing views — and, of course, Raintree (which isn’t marked, but is right by the sign where the trail splits after you come over the ridge). Temps were great for July — in the 70s when I started at 9:00 — and traffic on the trail was fairly light for a Sunday, especially once I passed the tree. Took me about 4.5 hours, but I made tons of stops for pictures and hung out by the tree for a while.

I’ll be doing this one again! Highly recommend it.

When you cross over the rocks, the trail goes to the left fairly soon after that. If you get to the pink ribbon you are above the trail. I thought I read somewhere a thank you for the ribbon so I followed that as our guide. We ended up hiking up and down the hills for 3 hours before finally connecting back with the actual trail Never made it to the springs. If you find the actual trail, the hike isn't too bad. But if you get off the trail, it gets very hard. The views were beautiful though.

Good hike today with a lot of colors and water

Relaxing stroll in a scenic forested area next to a creek.

A beautiful early morning start from the Mt Rose Summit parking lot. A mild walk to the Galena Falls. The water was running pretty fast and the wild flower were in full bloom. Looks like the corn silk still have a while. The last mile seems to be the longest mile. It’s windy, dusty, and 10,000 feet. The views all the way up are breathtaking.

Nice hike for a beginner. shaded, lots of plants and lovely butterflies around the water areas. There is a trickling waterfall and pool of water at the end.

Awesome hike! Nice trail that has few people on it.

Awesome views! Well worth the time and effort.

I hiked to the summit and as a new hiker, this was challenging for me. The view was absolutely gorgeous at the top but if you are new to hiking, you are in for an extremely rewarding but challenging hike.
