We did the short version, about 3-4 miles round trip. We walked up to “monkey point” where there’s a rock that looks like a gorilla. The views were absolutely beautiful and we found tons of great lookout points with mountain and lake views. AllTrails rates this one as moderate .. we joked that it was Colorado Easy, Milwaukee Extreme. If hiking is not a regular thing for you, you’ll feel those inclines, but it was worth every step!

Easy trail with waterfall at end. Beautiful meadow with flowers.

Views are amazing. Totally worth it.

Did this hike with an additional side trip up Houghton today, pretty views and well marked trail but what a zoo this trail can be! The section from the parking lot to the waterfalls was crazy, lots of unleashed aggressive dogs made it a very stressful trip with our two pups. Once clear of the waterfall it seemed like traffic died out almost completely. I’d come back but never on a weekend again.

HORRIBLE! Worst idea to hike up with a 40lbs of packing. Will not return unless told otherwise

Nice, fairly easy hike. Minimal elevation changes. Well kept trail. Great views the first 3/4 mile or so, then more forested. Beautiful falls at the end.

I am giving this trail four stars for the views alone. (Before I get into the review, let’s talk about the rating system for a moment. This trail is designated as “moderate”; however, if you’re slightly out of shape you will quickly learn that it should have been labeled as “most likely to send you into cardiac arrest.” It’s steep.) This trail has a TON of mountain bikers and many of them come barreling down the trail without warning. This gets annoying pretty quickly. Now, to be fair, some of them seem to be well versed in trail etiquette, but not all.

The view from the top is to die for. With that said it is Hard... not moderate because it is straight up. No switchbacks so super hard on the knees on the way down. Soft dirt and loose rocks.

As being one of the local trail builders on the Incline Flume project, I have helped complete stream crossings and rerouted the blocked sections of trail. As of June 2018 most of the hard work is completed, still much to do with signage and finish work. The trail is a real gem that all ability’s can enjoy, one of the only family rated Trails in the Tahoe basin. Many thanks to all the agency’s, the Forest Service, and groups,The Tahoe Fund and Friends of Incline Trails that made it all possible.

Hiked this on 6/23/2018 with my kiddo in the hiking pack. The views of Lake Tahoe are just beautiful. We parked along Route 28, just across from the cafe.

It is U P H I L L all the way up with no real flat sections. Lots of mountain bikers who were very courteous; just be mindful of them coming around the corners. There was some shade on the trail but it was mostly exposed. We turned around at 2 miles instead of continuing up to the Flume Trail connection because we wanted to see the monkey/gorilla rock. That was really neat and worth the slight side trip.

As you’re headed back down the trail, you’ll come to an intersection with a signpost that says “trail” and has arrows pointing left and right. Take the upper right trail and after a couple hundred yards you’ll come to some boulders on a hill, you can see the monkey rock just down the hill to the right of the boulders as you’re facing the lake.

Bathrooms at trailhead: Yes, but for cafe customers only. My toddler loved the strawberry smoothie :)
Stroller-friendly: Technically yes, in that the trail is pretty smooth and wide, but I’d recommend a carrier.

is not hard if you hike often..

Just a wonderful, super scenic hike. You can make it any length you need.
Great sandwiches at the Cafe at the bottom. We took them to go and had lunch at Sand Harbor. Perfect!

A lot of snow from the meadow but good down to Price lake witch we didn't reach..bush whacking .Got to the outlet and then back.Good day and our dog loved it.

Great trail. Very steep for about a mile. Nice views, only saw one group of people (on a Friday afternoon). Snow was almost completely gone by June

Fun trail with Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and Reno. 50% of trail still snowy on 6/10/18 but easily doable with the right shoes

This trail is very steep, I would definitely not call it moderate. The views of lake Tahoe from the peak are breathtaking, worth all the effort.

Rated moderate only for the incline. Easily walked up while in a sling 3 weeks after rotator cuff surgery. Views are awesome. The stop and turn around is really not a destination. You just turn around at 2.4 or anywhere you choose.
There is no parking behind the cafe as of now. You have to park in side of hwy then begin your walk up and past the cafe. The trail won’t start for about a quarter of a mile or a little more.

Great hike, it’s been a while since I have hiked so it took me a bit, but loved the spots to stop and take pictures, then great food at the end.

Amazing views! And this is the perfect weather to do the hike!

Absolutely beautiful!

Really lovely hike, especially if you’re looking for something not too far from Reno. The views are beautiful and the hike isn’t too hard. Really stunning rocks to climb and scramble on and also get a great view.

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.

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.
