Did Ice Box Canyon with my 21 y/o son. I'm 61 y/o. The guide given out at the visitors center rated this as a strenuous hike and AllTrails has it listed as moderate. It is not moderate at all. Very beautiful. After reaching the end and returning down we wandered to the right of the trail and ended up in a ravine. We needed to scale the wall of rocks to return to the trail. I'm very happy that I was able to complete this trail as most of my hiking is in Ohio. My right knee reminded me that this was a tough one.

Amazing trail! Very steep but the views are worth it. The clouds moved in about halfway up unfortunately and while it was fun to hold in the clouds, the view from the top was just grey in every direction. I'll definitely be coming back in the Spring!

Lots of scrambling over boulders but most obstacles had a way around them. It was cold and windy wear layers. Beautiful area.

Ah!!! This trail was awesome! The hike itself is not very difficult except for some snow/ ice patches (October), but the trees were phenomenal! You get right up in the patches of Bristlecone Pines and there's educational signs for those of us in the nerd community. Loved it!

Great hike with some cool caves

Not much to see, but an enjoyable hike if you're looking to get some exercise.

Nice Easy Trail, not a hard hike at all. Just a brisk stroll. It is hard to follow though....catch back up the trail, you have to walk thru the camp ground area. Walk to the end of the camp ground and you will catch back up to the trail, and that's where it gets more off in to nature. Look for the posts that say Acastus Trail to know your going in the right direction. Happy Hiking~!

Really fun trail! Doesn't take too long before the sounds of the freeway are drowned out by the wind through the pine needles, sounds of the creek and the birds singing. Yes, there is a pretty good grade to climb, but you are going from Washoe Valley into the mountains. I didn't make it all the way too the lake, the snow covering the trail was knee high in a few spots and I was uncertain on which way the path went. Had a great time!

Fun hike that's close to town. Lots of people out on a warm Sunday afternoon. Trail was pretty soupy in 5-6 spots from the rain and snow melt. Lots of footprints churning up the mud. Once in the tree line trail was very slick on the inclines. Waterfall was very pretty, as was the rest of the hike. Trail head is far enough from major roads that there was no sounds of town, only rushing water from the creek the whole way. Interesting to see where one of the recent fires affected and stopped.

We went up to Upper Lehman Creek as the road past this point was closed. Unfortunately, my recording stopped for the actual road this is for, but I took photos and wanted to share them along the track to get the GPS points. It is nice to see in the winter, but as the road to the top is closed, it will be good to go back in the summer.

very beautiful, and beautiful sight seeing area and it is not hard at all

Easy. Not much to see

fantastic trail for anyone in Reno. I love the sound of the creek as you hike.

My dog and I enjoyed the trail all to ourselves in the storm. Hiked to Churchs Pond and back.

I chose this trail for my Sunday Morning walk due to the recent snow. Didn't want to chance the mud before going to work. The trail had ice in some of the shaded portions, but with all of the footsteps it was never too slippery. Only a few others out this morning, so it was fairly pleasant.

This is more like a short walk, not a hike. The one thing that surprised me about the tundra is if it is moist/wet, you can sink down a little in it and it's slippery, so do be careful of that. We came in the winter, so some areas of the trail were snowy or slippery. The one good thing about this walk is it is available to walk even in the winter, when most of the park is closed.

Always a lovely trail, easy to follow and straight-forward. It's still cold enough to freeze the falls, so it was a spectacular column of ice.

We didn't make it to the top. The wind was howling and the snow was deep. I think it was in the low teens to single digits.
We'll give this a run again!

Nice hike!
Few runners and bikes but not overly packed with people.
Some snow and mud. Shoe chains helped in the few inches of snow on the ground.

Couple inches of snow once you get in the trees but mostly dirt and mud on the way up. The trail can be easily followed and navigated. Recommend good traction on your shoes since the mud and snow can get a little slick on the steeper slopes. Great run! Especially coming back down! Enjoy!

Long but worth everything

Amazing veiw from the top! Steep incline through out the trail but well worth it!

I haven't done this hike, but can you camp on the trail?

Went up snowing. Totally stunning experience. Snow made the trail very slippery at times, and was difficult to follow on the way down with the trail totally covered in slow. Not a long hike, but almost all uphill.

The falls were almost completely frozen, which made for a truly surreal experience.

Easy paved walk. Peaceful watching the water foul.

Awsome view! Great hike!

Right now (feb 19th) snow shoes are needed from spooner summit down to the lake. Wind blown snow drifts present. Beautiful regardless.

love that the birds eat from your hand

This was my second attempt to get to Rock Lake, but after downloading GPS coordinates, it helped as trail is hard to find after the creek. Hike is very steep going in and we did this on a winter day that turned out to be warm. At almost two miles in, there is a creek crossing and then shortly after, a second one. You will come to a sign showing that Ophir Creek continues on. DO NOT take the trail that goes downhill (this leads into Little Valley and some private property). When you continue on to Ophir Creek trail, it appears the trail stops and you will have to hike up a creek bed. We did this going up. However, there is a trail to the right of the creek, but it is hard to find. Once you go up the creek bed, you will meander through some "bramble" and find the trail again. Eventually, you will come to a couple of signs (one leads you to Upper Price lake and the other to Rock Lake). The trail is downhill from here and there was quite a bit of snow on the trail going in. Once we got to the lake, it was frozen over and we had fun throwing rocks out there to see if it would break. The entire trip (including our 1/2 lunch break at Rock Lake) was about 5 hours.

This was a very tough hike. Very long distances so make sure you are in shape if you want to do this hike. Also , wear the right clothes and make sure to pack alot of food and water! The scene is gorgeous and makes it worth it !
