This trail is amazing. I started at Spooner summit. Its steep at first then it gets better. I went off the trail a few times to see the lakes from the rocks. There are some hidden trails you can see in all trails to go up to the peak. I only went 3 hours out and turned around since I was not prepared with camping gear. You are allowed to camp along the trail and they advice to camp no further than 300ft from the trail. The altitude changes fast. This is not a beginner trail.

nice trail! not too much snow but lake was still frozen over.

Spent Black Friday doing this hike with very little other hikers. We encountered quite a bit more snow than we expected and should have brought snowshoes, so word to the wise, the snow is very deep in November. Nicely marked trail, beautiful views of Marlette Lake. Pack a lunch and enjoy the little peninsula that stretches out into the lake.

Nice easy walk to the base of the rock(s). We left the 18 month old and the dogs in the small clearing there (attended of course!) and took turns scrambling to the top. Well worth the climb, as the view is fantastic—clear and panoramic. Later we compared pictures, and it was interesting to note many were nearly identical. I’m glad we came in the offseason, however, as I imagine it gets a bit crowded during peak season.

Beautiful views of the lake! Very easy trail - even in 2 ft. of snow. Recommend for all ages and abilities.

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

beautiful! went a few days ago and once you get passed Spooner lake the snow can get deep. I still wore hiking boots and did fine. snowshoes would've been helpful

Nice easy hike. It was a bit muddy in places but that's part of the experience of hiking. Can wait to come back in the summer and ride it on the bike.

Definitely not the place to go to get away from people, or have quiet time. But the view is breath-taking! It's easy to get to the rock and from there, it's a bit of a scramble to the top.

Great little trail around spooner lake. Easy hike, may be muddy in certain areas at times. Only downside is some dog poop or trash left by inconsiderate visitors.

Great easy trail for young kids. both shaded and non. Restrooms by the parkinglot (there is a day fee) with easy parking. little lake was beautiful and very peaceful. lots of birds, open grass and great wooded area. we only saw one other group there around 10am on a Sunday. Great for photos. Will do it again.

Great place to take the little ones and introduce them to snowshoeing. Easy terrain and simple to follow.

Sunset here is just magical!

Beautiful view awaits you at the end!

I have been on this hike several times including the new hiking route portion. It is suitable for more most hikers.
I have discovered something rare, topograghy-wise,nearby the new hiking trail. i wonder if anybody else has noticed it, hint, it is near the wooden footbridge.

Just did this trail today and the view from the top of Cave Rock was spectacular! Quick easy hike with some rock climbing to get to the very tip top.

Nice trail for a family. Easy for kids with lots to look at along the way.

Beautiful trail. Make sure you use the trail rather than the road to get the most out of this hike. Either way it is worth it. Wish there was more color in the aspens.

Short trail with a great view. Some noise pollution from the road but well worth it.

It's a flat trail around a small lake. Good for an easy outing but not spectacular. well maintained dirt trail.

Beautiful first hike, the water smelled sweet, the forest flow was warm and piney, and the birch trees sang their song...

Nice trail around a beautiful lake. Only drawback is highway noise.

Great view. Very easy and short but worth it. Wish I would have taken lunch up there.

I hiked this trail on 09/19/17 with my wife. The trail is a lovely 2.1 mile round trip "walk" around a beautiful partially man made alpine lake. Scenic beautiful views of both the lake and forest that includes many "weeping" aspen, from the beginning to the end of the hike. Unlike a hike in the deep woods where there is limited sunlight, this trail provides plenty of light as you never venture far from the lakeshore. We were there too early in the autumn season to see much color other than a peek of yellow here and there. Interesting it was snowing a few days later at Spooner Lake. The negatives of this hike is that beside being a short hike it also very level, thus not much of a workout. An earlier review suggested do immediately do the hike again. We did not but it is an excellent suggestion. Another negative is that at certain points on the trail you can hear traffic noise from the nearby highway. I would like to mention on the positive side that the state parks of Nevada (of course including this one) are extremely well maintained. This includes the roadways, parking lots, trails, informative signage, and restrooms. Thank-you Nevada!

shorter than expected but was a nice trail with a beautiful Overlook of Cave Rock

really short but great View and easy access especially for those who are disabled

Easy hike. Very pretty. Make sure to check out the grinding stones from the Washo Indians at the north end of the lake. Nice interpretive signs along the way.

Great trail. Does cost 10 dollars to enter.
