Great trail. Barkley and I had a blast.

Great trail for horseback. We also believe we heard a bear in the woods and did see some scat.

There a couple of streams that we had to walk the horses through as the bridges are narrow and I am not sure they are rated for a horse.

Highly recommend this loop, and ample trailer parking at the trailhead.

Great 13er hike! Started at 6 am and the summit just after 8. First mile is flat and scenic. Next mile has a little incline and then it gets serious. Last mile was fairly steep but switchbacks. Very well marked trail. A lot of traffic on the way down. The detour to the lake is worth it.

*I"d do it early in the morning if bringing dogs- trail is flat but H O T for dogs in august.
*alongside a river.
* alongside a busy highway.
*alongside a train track- amtrack , and freight.
*we went half way on trail, I guess, and saw a crane and 15 or so mustangs.
* this would be fun on a bike.

Perfect loop. Did it clockwise today. Brought the wife and dog along. Goodtimes. A mountain biker was having a bite to eat at dry pond and noticed a decent sized bear about 50 yards away. Walking towards him. He packed up his stuff and jammed down trail towards whites creek. All in all. A beautiful day. A bit smoky but well worth it. The dog had a blast splashing around in the water along the way. Walking through the aspens along the water was probably my favorite part.

Amazing and very challenging hike! Made it to the summit on 5 August, just start early, it will be a lot cooler and try to avoid the thunderstorms by going early. It is colder on top, pack layers. Wear a hat and lots of sunscreen, also trekking poles help. It is a very hard hike but if you take your time, you can complete it. The trail is very rocky, go slow. It is very windy up there. You can see the trail all the way to the summit if you look closely.

Trail started off kinda boring, but once you get up to the boulders that you have to scramble up and get up the rope ladder, the trail was awesome. We hiked all the way to the stream up top. Great hike, very surprised. We ended up going over 1 mike further than where the trail map ended.

Great day hike! Took us a little bit longer than we anticipated (a little under 2.5 hours) as the elevation gains were a bit steep at times, but we are both just starting to get back into shape so that could be why. Great views and lots of spots to see them! Definitely recommend!

We couldn’t get to the river on account of the 50’foot drop where there used to be something to climb down from. The temperature outside was 116 however on the trail it was a bit hotter. We ran out of water and had difficulty making our way back to the car. We were only.3 miles from the car when finally i collapsed, the rangers had to come in and carry me out. I suggest not attempting this trail in July or August it’s just too hot. I will be back in October to conquer this trail... with my ropes and gear to climb. Be safe out there.

Did this yesterday 7/30/18 Teresa lake was very low. Stella lake was pretty but we were a little disappointed that it wasn't great to swim in. I still went in but it was only 2.5 feet deep at it's deepest and very very very soft bottom. I basically floated around trying not to touch the bottom! Still very refreshing. Highly recommend combining this loop with the Bristlecone/Rock glacier trail for a nice 7 mile hike.

Amazing trail, well worth the effort. Watch out for afternoon storms.

Planning on Hiking this starting early August 13/2018 if anyone would like to join! Email: kelssmith@upei.ca

This is a very large section of the Tahoe Rim Trail. I started off early in the morning and was finished just as the heat of the day was full on. Christopher's Loop is marked as "Sand Harbor Overlook" by signs on the trail. This whole section is very well marked on the trail as to just where the TRT is, sometimes determining it looking at various online maps makes it somewhat questionable. They've done a great job with this section!

It was fun, but hard. Couldn’t get access to water. Some things to consider, lots of water, rope, gloves because the rocks that you climb up and down get really hot!!! And keep an eye on the rainy season.

Fantastic but last mile is really challenging! I almost made it to summit. Got unnerved when the climb started to go vertical on very unstable rocks. The trail becomes faint. Wish I could have completed it! Made it as far as the circle on pic. That’s when it tests you!

as others have said, it's a leg workout for sure ! however the trail is mostly smooth sand/soil and easy on the feet. the views are spectacular and the feeling serene. I went on a Sunday and saw maybe a dozen courteous mountain bikers and 3 other hikers. trail head parking lot is small so I parked about 3/4 mile down the road at the beach area. also -the last little section of the "loop" after you go around the lake is a bit vague on this map (the red line) they have it paralleling the blue dotted bike trail. I just ended up walking the bike trail because it's easier to find.

Hiked this trail solo in 12 days. Easier than the JMT, but with the heavy snow year in 2017, navigation was a bit challenging in the snow. Resupplied once by Echó Lake Summit. This trail is a great introduction to thru-hiking.

Excellent trail if you’re just starting back hiking. Lovely views and plenty of shade spots. Good for dogs as well. Would definitely do this again!

Great trail

Fantastic hike. Hiked up the Baker Creek trail and spent the first night at Baker Lake. There was plenty of water along the way in the streams and springs. It had rained the night before so everything was cool and wet. The trail is very lush and green most of the way with water everywhere. You can definitely get by with only carrying a liter of water if you have a filter to make more. One small group joined us at Baker Lake and camped the night there. There was cloud cover that night so it did not get too cold. Probably around 40F. It rained a little.

Day two we went pyramid pass with the intent of climbing to the peak and spending the night somewhere around Johnson Lake. The hike up the pass is very steep and there is not really a trail. The way is marked well with caryns. At the top of the pass, we ditched our packs. The weather was way too sketchy (rain clouds and a little thunder) to get the peak so we hiked to the pass just west of pyramid pass and got a great view of the valley to the west. We headed down the pass and ate lunch at Johnson Lake. Johnson Lake is fed by a spring and the water is crystal clear. There are no fish in it. Plenty of historic cabins and buildings to see in the area. We continued down and made a left at the Timber Creek trail. This sucked. It was steep and hot in full exposure. After Snake Creek Divide, it was downhill again through a nice large meadow where we made a left on the South Fork Baker Creek trail. We camped just past the confluence of some springs and the south fork of Baker Creek. It rained a little again that night and then the cloud cover went away. It got cold. I would say just above freezing.

Day three we hiked out the last few miles along side the south fork of Baker Creek through a beautiful meadow. Great hike and we only saw one other group of people the first night.

quick and easy walk. not for the faint of heart. perfect for kids and a quick stop.

Good trail but be careful! I’ve had two bear sightings in the last two weeks.

We loved the hike. Its fairly easy and not too strenuous. Plenty of shade and the canyon is wonderful. the walk back has great canyon views.

uphill climb. Pretty views. Great way to get out of the city. We did this hike with a 6 year old and she did well.

We've done this twice on bikes and would do it again any day or night. Perfect views of lake mead and the tunnels are great. At the end there a a restroom, water fountain, and picnic table with gazebo. Perfect first date destination.

Hot in July but great views

Easy walk in the woods until it hits the canyon and gets narrow. From there it's difficult to discern between the stream bed and the trail. It's been dry these past few years so the stream bed seems to have been the route most have taken and the trail itself is a bit disused. At the end of the trail you can continue up the stream until you get to some short vertical climbs. From there it's a scramble up some rocks to continue upstream. Payoff are some wonderful canyon views at the end and then all the way back.

Very nice and relaxing walk. Fairly well used and easy to manage. Great entry or training hike, just speed up your pace to add difficulty. The Eagle's Nest loop is off this trail and can be used to add some distance if you find this hike to be too short.

Great hike for a walk in the woods and a wonderful hike for the family with kids because the area is confined and there are no big drop offs to wander over.

Great trail. There are a bunch of options along the way to make the hike harder. Pays off at the end with a beautiful canyon walk.
