Trail well maintained. First 2.5 miles including the falls iis a mild trail. Looking up to Mt. Rose in the distance was a bit daunting. The views just got better right to the summit. Definitely going back.

never knew Nevada could be so pretty

It was beautiful, plenty of parking and well taken care of trails! We had about a 5 min snow storm randomly! I couldn’t believe how green it was this late in the summer and there was a decent amount of water in the falls.

I did this hike on Friday, Sep 7th. Great hike with views of several lakes including Lake Tahoe. You will get a great view of Lake Tahoe early along the hike. It was so much cooler at the top, bring layers. The waterfall was beautiful too and a great time to rest. We arrived at 8:30 a.m. and didn’t have any issues with parking space. Hiking poles really helped. It took us about 6 hours roundtrip including a stop at the top for a snack and many breaks along the way.

We only go as far as the waterfall, so approximately halfway. It is a beautiful hike.

Beautiful views. I hiked in mid September and barely saw any other people on trail, granted it was a very windy day. The alltrails map just kind of ends, but the Tunnel Creek Trail continues. If you wanted to do the 4.7 round trip than you will have to just turn around mid trail. The trail is at a continuous mild to moderate incline...nothing intense.

Beautiful low traffic hike. Lots of scenic views, I would definitely do it again

*had good water availability ( creeks in vicinity of Galena falls at half way points- 2.5 miles- 3 miles into hike) for a good portion of the distance.
*gorgeous views all the way.
*top of mt. Rose provided magnificent views.

Very scenic hike. It took less than 4 hours round trip. the final mile was difficult at the switch backs, but became more challenging the last .25 mile with the gravel. I started at the trailhead at 230pm and made it back by 615. The views at the top are amazing.

Gorgeous hike. Hikers and bikers alike. Slightly windy at twin lakes but a great snack spot. I was all alone there... I think most people take the marlette route.

*bring lots of water.
*be mindful of many, many mountain bikers.
*very picturesque.

Great hike. Wonderful views even though there was a lot of haze/smoke from the CA fires. Water fall was still flowing strong with lots of very green vegetation. Easy hike to the falls if you are looking for a quick trip. From There it gets progressively more difficult to the summit. Very doable for a beginner, just make sure you take water and snacks. As a not, looking at the map route for loop, the portion of loop to the right is for hikers only. No bikes or horses.

Lovely hike with plenty of views. At the waterfall I went up instead of across and ended up on a neighboring peak. Still managed to get some good footage. Check out what you are in for here...

Awesome hike. The stroll up to the waterfall is gorgeous and fairly easy. You then gradually climb with a couple of small water crossings until you reach the 1 mile to the summit sign. Then it gets pretty strenuous to the peak, but the views are so worth it. Alternate trail back was refreshing as it was fairly empty compared to the main trail. Part of its fire road, but you see a pond and great views of Tahoe, plus it makes it more of a loop.

One of the best trails. Bring Water and snacks if your going to the top.

Lovely hike with beautiful views. Limited parking, so better to get there early. We didn’t think the mountain bikers were obnoxious, but it was nice to know we would encounter them along the way. Entire way there is uphill. We are averagely fit people, and it was a moderate hike for us. We’ll be coming back again!

Excellent hike. Enjoy an easier 5 mile loop to the waterfalls and back, continue to the summit for the challenging part. The views are worth it at the top. Take lots of water and snacks.

great hiking trail....

Gorgeous hike. There are now portapotties at the parking lot but they are pretty gross. Bring your own TP.
Nice lollipop if you take the alternate trail to Relay Peak Road and loop around that way back to the trailhead. Really nice hike through wildflower meadow. There is a small pond for a dip/wade - the dogs we passed were loving it.

Gorgeous. I went for a trail run and was happy with how runnable it was. Well marked

Great hike, fantastic views and very few other people!

Really great if youre looking for a challenge for a beginner hiker!

Nice hike. Easy for the most part. I did this hike on 8/4. it was very smoky that morning but by the time I got up to the start of the hike which was just under 9000 feet the smoke wasn’t really affecting me but it did affect the views.
It does start to incline shortly after the waterfall but no steep parts. its a pretty gradual incline even the switchbacks aren’t very steep. only difficulty really is elevation if your not used to it.
it was super windy at the top. about a half mile before I got to the summit the wind gusts were so strong they nearly knocked me off my feet a few times.
but once you get to the summit there are some rocks you can sit behind which blanket from the wind. if there wasn’t so much smoke it would’ve been a beautiful view. total hike took just under four hours that was with the rest stops to take pictures and lunch at the summit.

What a great trail. It starts off with a bit of a steep incline but if you can hang in there it is well worth it. When you get to a grouping of rocks on the right (I think about 1.5 miles in you will want to take a little path off the the left. It takes you to Monkey Rock and some of the best views of Lake Tahoe. My husband and I are over 60 wand managed it well but you definitely want to be in decent shape

Easy hike to waterfall but not so easy to the summit, beautiful and worth it!
