Still under snow when we arrived. Didn’t have the gear for snow hiking. Will try again later in summer.

Great views!!! Upper half of the hike was beautiful but stopped in an uneventful way. Had to hike off trail a bit to get to see the highest view of the lake!

Great hike, gorgeous views. Fairly trafficked

Fantastic views! There's still some snow near the top of the trail, but nothing hiking boots can't handle.

Parking is at the cafe at the bottom of the trail. The views for this trail were pretty amazing and the trail is mostly sand and very well maintained. A lot of dogs off leash today. The elevation gain at the beginning of the hike is pretty significant, but the side trail leading to an overlook was a good place to enjoy the view! There was also some snow at the end of the hike before the turnaround. I brought micro spikes, but managed fine in my boots.

fun hike wonderful views and not too steep an incline and pretty easy trail. slushy snow at the top that got our feet wet. thicker socks and better boots would have solve that though.views well worth the hike

This is the perfect trail for Snow Shoeing! Other trails that I've been on have been difficult to tell where the trail is unless there are tracks already, and then - can you really trust them? This trail is very wide (snowmobile's use a large segment of it) and is very clearly defined by TRT signs along the way. The first .6 mile trail is a hiking trail, but once you get past that, it's a piece of cake.

Beautiful hike! You can cut through to take a quick peek of the monkey rock and the beautiful 270 degree view of the lake. Shortcut is a bit steep but well worth it.

Late but we did this hike Thanksgiving Day and it was such a beautiful escape for the morning. My Pup loves to see snow so having some patches up at the top of the hike was perfect for him!

Love trail and views of Lake Tahoe.
Didn’t like the three dog owners that didn’t have their dog on leases.

This hike has great views of the lake ! That being said, don’t let the mileage fool you, it’s not a moderate hike. The climb is a constant steep grade on loose slippery soil most of the way. If you are an experienced hiker and in good shape, I would recommend. If you are on vacation just looking for a “nice” hike, there are better choices.

Completed it on 1/1/18. The first mile was hiking, the next 0.5 needed micro spikes, and the last 0.5 needed snow shoes but is passable if you are willing to post hole.

Gets your heart pumping. Took us one hour to do the 2.4 miles one way up. The way down took approx 35 min. There is a $1 fee for hikers paid via the honor system. Saw a little more doggie doo that I’d expect as Tahoe trails are usually very clean. Trash can at the end was overflowing. Overall a nice hike. I’d do it again.

good views of lake

Good wide trail. Fairly steep sections but mostly on the front end. Beautiful views. First 1.5 miles contain most of the views. Ends at trail head for longer hikes of 5 and 11 miles.

Views to do for! Did it after a light snow. Icy at points, even my snow boots were a little iffy. Was a little jelly of my friend’s ice cleats. Highlight was definitely the Mark Twain bench...most beautiful picnic ever.

Great views! Highly recommend.

Hiked in with snow at the 2 mile mark. A couple of off-trail adventures, and back down to see Monkey Rock to round out a 6.8 mile hike in 2 hours. plenty to pic.

definitely hard. but wow so rewarding. I did this after the first snow so there was no visible trail, but if you know where the peak is and stay on a straight course it's not bad. park at gate and walk around tower. The views will take your breath away.

If I could put the smell of the trail in a candle I’d burn it forever

Marked as moderate but it was a pretty easy hike. Took around 3 hours to complete and that's cause we took our time.

Beautiful hike! It was hard to find especially in the snow (October 21, 2017) but is a relatively easy hike. Park at the Tahoe meadow trail head parking lot off of Mt rose high way and County Road 340. Follow the signs for the Tahoe Meadows hike and when you get to the bridge you’ll see a sign for Ophir. We saw a few signs after that but made our own trail a little bit due to the snow. We used the all trail map to get back on the trail. After that it was an easier trail to follow. Mostly flat and downhill on the way out but had some step areas on the way back. We didn’t make it all the way to the lake because there was a large stream that we would have gotten very wet if we crossed. All in all a good hike. The pups loved it and the meadow allowed them to run around a lot!

Good trail.

Great views all the way up the rating should be hard as it is almost straight up with lots of loose sand the view from the very top rocks is amazing not too hard to follow but no markings at all so stay alert definitely worth the effort wear ankle high boots or be prepared for shoes full of dirt also the trail head is just a locked gate in a neighborhood so parking is not great

Was planning to do the Ophir Creek Loop, but due to bad signage and incongruences between signs and the various maps in the park, we ended up getting lost and going all the way to Upper Lake. We were not prepared for the extra end of the trail we accidentally added one. Better signage would be extremely helpful for those of us who are directionally challenged.

Was a beautiful trail, we thoroughly enjoyed.

Beautiful. Loose soil can be challenging.
