Great Trail. Fantastic views and fairly well marked, which was surprising given we couldn't seem to find the exact trail when we went up to Castle Rock. We followed the "beaten" path thru the snow, which wasn't what ALLTrails showed. Still loved it. Look forward to doing it again in Spring Thaw weather.

Gate was Locked this morning when I went to drive it. Plenty of people sledding down by the entrance in the small amount of snow.

Awesome hike with 3 kids - 9, 6, and 3. The 2.7 miles was just a loud perfect. They only broke down around 2.5 miles.

Beautiful views

Great trail. Completed the whole thing in my ‘08 RWD Silverado. Had 1 issue with the first hill but nothing a little patience and airing down couldn’t fix. I would rate this as EASY. 10/10 will do it again this week and take more time to explore side trails.

I do have all terrain 35’s and a G80 locking differential. Plus some recovery equipment (didn’t have to use).

Spectacular view from Castle Rock!!! Good trail to acclimate on.

Superb little hike, especially with kids. Requires to be a bit careful towards the rock.

Fun trail with lots of side trails to explore. Best suited for high clearance 4x4s due to a couple steep sections with large, loose rocks. Cant wait to explore more next season!

Had an excellent day along this stretch of the Rim Trail. Went to the top of Freel Peak, although it didn't look as though it was taller than Jobs Sister. Maybe they should re-measure. Star Lake is beautiful, several people had set up camp nearby and looked quiet pleasant. Loved it!

Nice hike and great views. My maps cut out and using the trail markers was a bit confusing at one point.

Great little hike. Great views!

Good views. Trail is not clearly marked so it can get confusing to go down another trail path.

Was still closed from Kingsbury side until 5:30 per the sign. Headed to Carson to shop then came back from the Spooner side. Fun first trip for Wrangle JKU.

Had a great day completing my 5th section of the TRT. Had to take the time and spend the effort to see the top of Freel Peak. Once I was up there, it seemed that Jobs Sister was higher - contrary to all the maps and info. Star lake was gorgeous and several groups were camping near. Several small streams south of Freel peak.

Great hike! Easy to follow the trail!

Road construction closed the road leading up to the trailhead so we had to take a pretty janky trail around the road to get there. Trail was great once we found it; well-marked with some cool views. Was a good workout for both my ten year-old and me!

Closed - sort of. When I went to drive this on July 31, the road from Kingsbury to the trail head was closed due to construction. One of the workers advised I wait until the crew left and come back after 4pm when the road would be reopened, and it was. Good, easy trail that shouldn't put your vehicle at any risk - including Nevada pin striping. Lot's of places to stop, park and take a detour either in the vehicle or on foot. Great trail to take along family and friends who are new to / apprehensive of off road driving.

Most of trail easy to traverse. Near Castle Rock have to scramble up to get views of Lake Tahoe

Amazing views and great workout. Some uphills to it but nothing too strenuous. Very happy with this hike and highly recommend. We saw dozens of chipmunks and a lot of wild flowers!

This was a great Saturday hike. Went about 3pm on Saturday and no problem parking. Hike had good views to start and then some ok forest time and not to long to castle rock. Once you get to Castle Rock and if you climb up the view is amazing. Had the rock all to myself for half hour and just amazing view of the lake.

This was a good little trail, we did it in our Cherokee Trailhawk. it took about an hour and a half with driving down one of the logging roads that dead ended.

Great forest trails for stock suv 4x4 vehicles and good views. There are a few turn offs a map would have helped. Never the less it’s not to hard to navigate at that elevation.

Great views from Castle Rock; trail is nicely maintained and marked.

Easy walk in the woods. We walked it in an hour. Not the view we expected. Only a quick look over the lake in the beginning of the trail...

Trail was incredibly fun! Took out our trail rated 2018 Grand Cherokee for the first time and it performed beyond my expectations. Any trail rated Jeep can handle the terrain with ease. It was our first time off road and can’t wait for the next trail. Don’t worry about tight brush scratching up your rig or anything like that. Have fun and ride on!!

Went here in stock a rubicon and 4Runner with lift kit. Overall easy great beginner trail, took us about 4 hours but that’s cause we kept stopping at the many scenic spots. Nothing challenging here but definitely a fun drive with a few different terrain conditions. Definitely recommend.

Went with a group including children. Amazing views of Lake Tahoe.

Great trail, beautiful views. Be wary of taking the wrong loop back. There was still snow here and there (mid may). Great for older kids (7+) and dogs.

Nice lake views at the beginning. Had to manage walking on snow in mid April.
