Great trail, very well graded for the area. CAUTION! Water pump is not functional at Marlette Camp as of 6/27 and will require a detour down to the lake, plan accordingly as it’s over a mile detour one way. Happy trails

Great hike. Parking lot is open but small, we got there at 9 am on a Sunday and were fine but when we got back down around 12:30, it was overflowing. Hike is mostly shaded, has a good steady include, great views of Tahoe, and a gorgeous quiet lake at the top. Saw ~10 other people total on the entire hike.

It’s a nice easy trail and great for doing a photo shoot! Had a great time with my son and daughter!

great views! Well worth it.

Great trail, took us about 2 hours to go 4 miles. Another commentator suggested going counter clockwise, which was a little rough going but the trail is steep all around. There are at least 3 park benches installed if you need to catch your breath and enjoy the great views!

Really nice hike—challenging but doable. The uphill is serious, but not excruciating. The downhill honestly hurt a bit more on the feet and thighs! Great view of Tahoe, awesome rocks, and lots of shady spots to rest. Weird low thumping/howling sound, would love to know what it was if anyone knows! Would recommend for a nice challenge!

the hike was awesome but the views are limited. we didn't go all the way up cause only thing to see was the same valley view. some rocky area and bicyclist are not respectful of the small trail we have to share. there was one cyclist respectful enough. but the view is beautiful but nothing really new

Great views of the valley. Moderate climb. Nice variety of vegetation.

It was a good idea to start early as it would have been brutal to climb up in the heat. Narrow, single track, and lots of loose rocks in lots of places. Waterfall at the end was a nice prize for the effort. Good view of the valley all along the way and shade here and there.

Lots of shades and can hike during mid day. It was beautiful but we weren’t able to go to the top of the rock due to current falcon nesting.

Great view! Not to bad of a walk.

Want to walk on Mars, I felt like this could be the place. Beautiful natural sculptures and geologic formations. Great place to explore, just preserve the beauty.

Beautiful trail. Easy to find and good parking. There are some spectacular views of the lake from a couple of particular vista points. Also some great wooded spots. The loop trail gets a bit confusing at certain points and is not always well marked when there is a street or roadway nearby or accesway crossing. So a paper or online/phone map can be helpful. There are a few serious uphill sections. We did it almost nonstop, but a few breaks would have reduced our huffing & puffing. Lots of wildflowers, no crowds, and near-perfect weather made this a great afternoon hike.

Shady, beautiful views, not crowded. Very nice hike!

5 minute easy walk. I feel like so many people go that it’s dirty and has been eroded by so many feet. Trash and graffiti all over.

Amazing view, super chill to get up there and great place to relax.

Truly beautiful. A good cardio on the way up, windy up top and less shady on way down. My watch registered this as 9.22 miles from the parking lot for what’s that worth.

Great trail! I used it as a link to the Tahoe Rim Trail at Spooner so I also took the upper Clear Creek Trail. There is a tree down on the upper trail. I would recommend doing the lower trail only during the morning as it’s completely exposed and dry. I left at 5:20 am and the sun rise was amazing over the desert hills.

Great quick hike. Nice little falls.
