Hiked to the peak 4/23/18 and ran into 2-3 feet of snow and ice once we hit 9,300. From the cathedral rock trailhead, it’s about 9 miles round trip.. Spikes were huge in helping us hit the top since the switchbacks became hard to follow once we hit the snow. Great views the whole time

It’s absolutely beautiful here right now. The ducks are nesting, the plants are coming back to life, the river is flowing, and the trails are dry. Super easy little nature walk, nice way to catch some fresh air on your lunch break!

At about the halfway point to the lake the trail is almost completely covered in snow. There are enough footprints to find your way on it, but it just started to become a pain in the ass to walk in the stuff so I turned back. Maybe give this one a few more weeks to thaw out

This hike is a lot of fun; a bit of scrambling, light climbing and beautiful views. The way down is relatively easy, however the way back up can be a bit more challenging based on your experience level. It requires a bit of climbing, and you will need to go up and around a couple spots where the trail seems to be at a dead end. I actually did this hike twice in a week, as I lost a silver chained dog tag that my wife gave me, and was hoping to find it, with no luck. If someone happens to find it, please get in touch.

Good trail. Don’t stop, the end is worth the view

I hike this trail quite often as it is close to home. Gives a great panoramic view of the valley and is especially nice as dusk.

Fantastic trail. However, it should probably be labeled Hard due to the 2-mile steep climb up Jones Creek. The trail becomes a little easier once you hit the switchbacks. The views are incredible. Will definitely hike this one again.

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!

Very easy to follow, I even went off the trail a little and saw a couple snakes and frogs. There is a small creek that you follow almost the entire time.

Hiked this a few days ago with friends. It’s a nice trail with some rock hopping to make it interesting. Also, always nice to see water on the way.

Park is still closed for the season as of 4/23 so parking is off road. Directions to the parking lot on this app is slightly short - keep going on 28 another 0.7 mile or so and you’ll see the park entrance on your left. Very nice views from east side of the lake.

This trail kicked out butts!! But it was so worth it! We went a few years ago in October. It was warm and sunny. Def need to come back and give it another climb!

Very easy hike and short. The Waterfall is nice and the cave at the end of the trail. My daughter and her friends had a really great time. good for kida and pet

Gradual ascent up the canyon for the first couple of miles then stay to the left side of the ravine. Some bouldering but mostly a defined trail until about half way up the ravine then its climbing over a couple of rock outcroppings then back on the trail. If you hustle and don't lose the trail, count less than 2 1/2 hrs.

We went on March 3, 2018. Though it was winter, they do one or two tours a day on winter weekends. It was full, even then! If you want to go in the summer, book well in advance. The guide was awesome as she knew a lot about the cave and could give us a lot of facts (both social and scientific) about the cave. The cave is modernized with steps, cement pathways and lights. Our tour was 1.5 hours and well worth it!

I did try to record the path, but since you are underground, you can not record the path, no GPS signal. The recording and map of this path provided here is most likely the above ground visitor center nature trail loop.

More visually rewarding than the Strip in Las Vegas.

Great hike, gorgeous views. Fairly trafficked

Awesome little area to hike/snow shoe! Bring some bird seed and the birds come and land right on your hands!

An incredible trail! A good steady climb, but nothing strenuous. Lots of trees, still some snow on the ground, birds singing... just a great trail all around. I didn't go through Lower Bristlecone because it's said to be boring.

I have so much fun on this trail! There are other versions of this same trail, but I'm more than happy to do it several times. The incline is quiet steep but the views are totally worth it.

Decent hiking trail, close to the city and short drive from home, easy to moderate for kids and pets

Bummer, the trail is closed. We tried on 4/22/18, all access is closed.

Lovely and easy trail down to the water. Crystal clear, would be nice in warmer months to take a swim. Old party house was cool. I can imagine this hike is very busy in the summer as there were lots of people hiking it in April cool weather. A boat was in the bay anchored for a lunch break too.

Its nice and beautiful when you reach the end. Also you can see the city from the top.

Wow! Technically speaking only base on Fire Wave Trail - Nice. Small thought. The Trail is Easy, big rocks plus the “Fire Wave (like) Rocks” are just cool, watch your step the rocks are rigid but other than that it’s something different. Sit, relax and clear your mind.
