Lovely hike gorgeous views

this trail is an annual ritual for me. it helps me acclimatize to the elevation for longer hikes later in the week

Nice hike. The Trail could be better marked, especially in the beginning. Lots of photo ops.

Great hike! Easy to follow the trail!

Beautiful 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!

Most of the hike was in the sun because of the Gondola fire. Recommend starting early. Beautiful waterfall.

A very nice, yet challenging hike into the sugar pine forest above heavenly. There's a wonderful small waterfall that you pass by as well as several small creeks that you cross. The views are spectacular.

Up to the very top and back clocks in at 7 miles, so i'd advise you to not bring young children on this hike expecting to get to the top. There are some great places to hike to along the way, however, that would make a great short hike.

Bring some water, pack sunscreen, and have proper footwear as I saw a few people in sandals having a very tough go.

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.

Beautiful views of Tahoe!!

Nice walk with great views early on but there's little reward at the top, just a few rocks for a picnic before heading back down. Take plenty of water as some steep uphill sections are un-shaded.

Beautiful new trail! Could not quit taking pictures. Started at 7 am and almost the entire hike was shaded. Wasn’t very busy on a Wednesday that early in the morning, parking was easy, only saw 3 runners and two bikers the entire way until the last half mile on the return trip when several groups were headed up. So go early and enjoy the views!!

Awesome hike with great views!

on Castle Rock Loop Trail

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!

Great family hike — easy/moderate and very well-marked. We arrived at 9:45 am which allowed for easy parking, perfect weather and minimal foot traffic. Gorgeous views. Don’t miss the “Vista” sign — follow its direction for the best view of the lake from atop the rocks. Kids also enjoyed the California/Nevada border marker near the parking lot.

Hike this one for the views! Take your time to stop and take photos of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. From the trail head near the equestrian parking lot, follow the orange trail markers to the Tahoe Rim Trail intersection. Many hikers stop at the waterfall as their turnaround point. Start early, most of the hiking is in full sun and the trail gets crowded since it’s so close to the tourist area.

Great little hike, easy to moderate... great views of South Lake Tahoe

Great views and easy climb. Waterfall was fun!

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.

We when down the trail from the top. Very long forest trail not hard at all. Very shaded from the sun.

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.

This is a fun family hike we take every year up to the waterfall. There are great views of the lake. I agree with others to skip the Vista Point & look at the lake from the trail farther up.

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!!

We hiked to the waterfall; beautiful views of the lake through the trees.

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.
