Had a great time with my fur baby. Was unable to find the way up after the second tunnel, so we went back and the follows the path the other way to see the river. Heard coyotes yelp and howl. Then came face to face with one. Make sure to visit the river. It is a calming sound and there are a few cranes hanging out.

Parked at the overlook parking lot. Bathrooms available. Trail goes west down the hill. Marked well. Slot canyons were beautiful! Didn’t see any owls but could see where they had droppings on the ledges above. Recommend hiking to the double tunnel and back for the max experience with the a lot canyon. Go longer if you just want extra miles but nothing too amazing to see— just quiet and sheep droppings found.

Fun easy hike with some slotish like canyons and multiple tunnels. Decent birding and views, overall just a good time. No one else on trail around 11am on a Thursday in December.

had tons of fun in the wash with the dog. loved all the sea shells in the ground and the great caves through the wash.

It costs 25 dollars to access the trail Don’t come here if you just want to hike for an hour or two

This is a great trail for a brisk walk. You can also walk over to the picnic area at Carson River Park near the bridge and then double-back on the trail and walk back to where you started at the ranch. My wife and I also walked the road that goes into the hills and ends in a semi-circular area where sand or rock may have been mined at one time. We walked back and then took this trail and really enjoyed it. As of this writing, I believe access to Mexican Ditch is closed until December, due to work being done on the trail, but check that.

A little confusing at first, the trail leads into a bunch of trees but just try to stay all the way to the right and hug the side of the mountain headed toward the lake and you’ll get there! It was a fun hike with my dog! Not too busy on a Saturday so that was a plus!

Cool trail

We missed the portion where this trail follows the River Mountains Loop trail. We went a bit too far and then just headed back. Even though this is rated as moderate, the portion we hiked was fine for little kids. Just the beginning has a rocky slope but even the 4 year olds handled it with help. Fun trail for the family. There's little shade until you get into the canyon area so I wouldn't do this in the summer.

STOP!! This trail is NOT a loop. It is next to impossible to climb up a 30 foot steep embankment to get to the Mountain River bike trail. Just follow this straight out. You hike through a cool slot canyon and through two large drainage pipes (about 1.0 miles) then turn around and come back. FUN hike but not a loop!

Easy trail with good trail markings except where they weren’t!! We made a few wrong turns before we figured out that we had to cross the railroad tracks to get to the bridge!!

Super fun would totally come again

I would have give this 5 stars, and maybe I will next time, but I could NOT find where I was supposed to get out of the river bed and get to the road above, so I just ended up hiking upward in my own world for a half hour or so before I pulled my phone out and realized I had gone too far. I couldn’t find a way up to the road on my way back either, so I just went back to the car. The wash was ultra-beautiful though.

started recording on my way down, double the distance to get a more accurate reading. beautiful views, access to water for dogs.

Beautiful short-easy hike. There were sea shells all along the first portion which was crazy to see! The canyon was beautiful and the tunnels were fun to explore. I will be doing this one again.

Took this trail around 9:45am with a family of six, including two children under 12 (youngest is 9). We started the loop to the left and couldn't find the way up to the bike path after the second tunnel (the twin set). Once you go through the twin tunnels, find a ravine/path up and to the right about 1/5 mile further, the rising "path" cuts back towards the path/tunnels. Overall, I'd estimate about 1:45 needed to complete the full loop. (It took us an extra 30 minutes searching for the way to get up after the twin tunnels.) Fun trail, moderate difficulty (the initial drop/climb near the trailhead is the hardest climb/drop). Interesting trail to see - and be shocked by - how much Lake Mead has receded over the years.

Very nice, easy paved trail around the lake. Lots of ground squirrels living in the rock wall along the south side of the lake.

Totally worth it! Short home, short canyon, very pretty. Worth going during daytime, probably wouldn't suggest going in the morning or evening.

We went backpacking 10/19. We started at Kingsbury south and ended at big meadows. We dropped our car off at Big Meadows trailhead first and got a ride through “Wanna Ride” a local shuttle service in South Lake Tahoe. It was below freezing at night out camel backs froze! It can easily be done in 3 nights/days. We camped by Star Lake. There are some flat spots there. Camp fires are not permitted. No permit is required to hike the trail . The scenery is beautiful. The birch trees are bright yellow during this time. There aren’t very many steep climbs, just steady switch backs up the steeper inclines. Beautiful hike with some brief views of Lake Tahoe
