Great hike. moderately challenging, as I had to rest three or four times at the switchbacks. pack plenty of water. amazing view at the end.

Gorgeous views from a well maintained trail. Lots of switchback make this a relatively easy climb. The waterfall is definitely a highlight of the hike!

great hiking trail....

We love this hike. It is pretty easy, quick and has great views.

I hike the Thomas Creek Upper trail monthly in my Mt Rose rotation. this trail has it all and with ample shade and almost constant running water, it cools on those hot Reno days. I usually go in up to the bridge and depending on weather, time of day for direct sun and traffic, I sometimes take the access road eitber up or down. it makes for a decent work out and the many dogs and horses are a plus for animal lovers. i even saw a mountain mono cyclist...incredible. you will love this moderate hike.

It is definitely a good cardio workout but it's absolutely stunning all the way up!

Great trail from someone from the Midwest. a lot of different options to choose from once you start. Moderate elevation changes which lead to a pretty nice view of downtown Reno. Very enjoyable.

In the top 2 hikes of any I've done. I'm from the Midwest so this was certainly a change. Great, moderately strenuous hike up. Then a nice rest at the cold waterfall and a fairly easy hike back down.

*lovely as it gets near reno.
*last mile into falls area is wonderfully shaded and beautiful.
* bring lots and lots of water for your four legged companions in the summer.
*loved following the creek all along the way.

South loop is a great trail. We love to backpack this hike as there is many sites along the way. This is a great beginner backpacking trip, I highly suggest it. Final push to the summit is the hardest part of the trail. Beautiful views!

Amazing!

I haven't done this in a couple of years.... Went last week after work and it was great. Lots of uphill.. Good people on the trail. It was tough but I went again this week and seemed much easier so I think I paced myself better. Like I said, lots of uphill!

When you get to the trail point you can go left to cave cove or go right (go right) On the right just up the hill are some beautiful top of mountain views! The cave cove is a more exercise uphill hike with not too much to see. When you get to the hollowed out tree with water you've arrived. It's up right above that.

This hike up and down isnt too long but both weeks left my legs sore and my abs tight!

Very easy and also very short. Good for a quick change in scenery if you head north or south on the east side of Lake Tahoe and want to make a quick stop.

Gorgeous hike. There are now portapotties at the parking lot but they are pretty gross. Bring your own TP.
Nice lollipop if you take the alternate trail to Relay Peak Road and loop around that way back to the trailhead. Really nice hike through wildflower meadow. There is a small pond for a dip/wade - the dogs we passed were loving it.

The main castle rock hike was closed so we did this instead. It was perfect for my younger teen. The view at the end is amazing, you can see the entire lake. Once you get to the rock, make your way around the back to the right and then climb around to the lake side - go up the rock just a little- it is easier than it looks and the reward is well worth it.

Great trail. Spotted a bear, while hiking up.

favorite local walkabout

Gorgeous. I went for a trail run and was happy with how runnable it was. Well marked

This is a very convenient trail that has no road noise, which is high on my hope list. Wasn't the first one on the trail by any means, but was able to see a couple of coyotes. Biggest drawback of the trail is the dog owners assuming that everyone enjoys strange animals running at them full speed.

Great hike, fantastic views and very few other people!

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.

It is worth your time. Good exercise . My friend and I spent almost 3 hours there. It will be smart if you bring your snacks and enough water with you. It doesn't hurt to bring your camera with you.

I live minutes away so I’ve gotten a chance to hike this trail numerous times. I love it. It’s not too close to the city, but not too far either. You get an amazing view of Las Vegas and it’s a fairly easy trail. There’s a trail that faces the city, which is a more inclined trail and will have you out of breathe for a minute. But not anything too bad. The trail on the other side is perfect if you want an easy and fast trail. There is also the actually Lone Mountain Park which is right there. It’s a nice park, not too crowded, has a basketball courts, playgrounds, and a large grass area and walking/biking trail. I absolutely love Lone Mountain.

The hike was very horizontal and not suitable for any temperature other than a morning climate. Overall, though, the sights were breathtaking, and it was definitely worth my time.

Nice evening walk. Scouting out places for my daughters engagement photo shoot

Good workout trail. No a very scenic trail though. Lots of loose gravel on trail so watch your footing.
