Great hike with lots of scrambling but it’s so fun. View at the top is worth it. Took about 2 hours total.

Really steep if you park where AllTrails leads you! Slippery gravel/sand, wish we had our poles. As others mentioned it’s a nude beach, so may not be great for kids. There were some men doing naked yoga!

Tricky to find road in to trailhead. Turn right 1.6 miles from 88/89 intersection heading north. If coming from South Lake Tahoe go about one mile past Luther pass and look to the left for a dirt road. There is a stop sign on the road. Follow the road back 4.3 miles to a parking area. The road is rough. Nothing is marked at the trailhead. The trail starts as a blocked dirt road and becomes single track. Great views of the east valley and Lake Tahoe at the summit. Big climb 2.2 miles. One and a half hours up and one hour down.

Quick and easy 2 hour hike. Beautiful views and well marked. Great for beginners and experienced hikers alike. Strongly recommend this trail and then a visit to the Lodge

Very scenic trail, very moderate hike with a 1200' incline. Some areas with loose rocks but very negotiable. Good workout. Quite a few people on the trail but not overly crowded. Hiked on a Tuesday afternoon, sunny and warm, no shade for first 2.5 miles of the trail.

Did the entire trail from trail head to Hoover Dam- walked across the dam to the next state! Recorded just shy of 5 miles each way. Definitely not 3.4 miles round trip as listed. Bring snacks and lots of water. Once you get to Hoover Dam there are real bathrooms. No pets allowed on the dam, supposedly. We sneaked a small one that behaved and could be carried when it gets too crowded. What a pleasure discovery (the Dam, doh) once the trail merged into heavy tourist footpath. Did it on Oct 21 and the weather was perfect. High was around 76.

well maintained trail. easy to follow and navigate. it is common for mountain bikers to zip bye. I paused the recording at the lookouts to save battery. I spent an extra hour and a half soaking in the view.

cactus everywhere if your dog is dumb like ours beware

So many ways to go, kept it fun!

Amazing view of the lake with little effort. Well worth it.

Nice level paved walk through the park along the river. Quite a few homeless hanging out along the way. Kinda put a damper on the whole nice park thing, but we did find a nice little coffee shop a little ways down the river.

I wouldn’t recommend this trail. It’s cuts through the neighborhood with dogs barking and trying to get through their fences. The route takes you through the back alley of Main Street which is not a good idea. Good luck if you decide to do this not much of a trail.

Road to Wheeler Peak summit parking was still open, though patches of snow / ice were covering small portions of the road. Hard to say how much longer it will be open, but my guess is they’ll close it with next big snow storm. Completed the 8.6 mile round trip hike in about 4.5 hrs. The first 2.5 miles were fairly easy, with limited elevation gain and light winds. After 2.5 miles, a lot starts to change. The trail becomes significantly steeper, and you’ll run in to more frequent patches of snow. The real killer was the winds, which became brutal. I would estimate they were 50-60 mph on the way up, and 60-70 mph on the way down. I summited around noon, and was the first to have made it to the top for the day (from the log at the top, only one person summited the day prior). It was an absolutely incredible feeling, and having the summit to myself was pretty special. I probably passed 10-15 individuals on the way down, and the majority were struggling with the steepness and strong winds. I saw at least 4-5 groups turn around, and would be surprised if more than a handful made it to the top (not trying to over exaggerate here, but the conditions were getting really rough by early afternoon). I highly would recommend trekking poles for the descent down. The snow made things slippery when descending, and having the extra points of contact was really important. All in all a great hike, really fortunate to have had the chance to do it.

Overall I enjoyed this trail. Great length and different terrain types to really test your endurance. Many switch backs and elevation changes. Once you get about 1/2 to the peak it really starts to increase in elevation (pace yourself). I’m an avid hiker and former military service member but even I had to catch my breath a few times. There are spray painted rocks throughout the trail to dictate direction of travel but even then it’s still confusing. Got misplaced a few times on my decent but managed to boulder scramble back on track. The tiring journey is worth the breathtaking view from the summit. Took me about 1 hour 15 minutes to get to the peak and around 2 to get back to my vehicle parked in the parking lot. Will hike again.

Mostly clear trail. A bit overgrown and muddy, but a very nice walk.

pretty easy hike, incline-wise. go until you see the sign that says rock glacier and elevation, just FYI.

this trail is worth doing!!! beautiful views from high desert to pines. I would go early and avoid the trail in the middle of the day if you can't be exposed to sun and heat for long periods of time. it took us 1 hour 40 minutes to reach the falls which is all up. the only downside to this trail is people not cleaning up after their dogs.

very short hike, steep rock climb at the end, great views of lake Tahoe.

I hiked to Griffith Peak yesterday. It was a gorgeous sunny day, beautiful hike with fall colors. It’s a butt kicker & leg burner hike. I used this app to record my hike, at the end it showed total of 10.9 miles 3,917 feet total gain. It was 52 degree at the parking lot when I started around 10am. I haven’t had a decent hike in about a year, so I was pushing myself. Totally worth it as I got the peak to myself.

Great trail! challenging and views all the way up! refreshed my water supply in the waterfall ;)

Great trail. This takes about an hour to go up and back down with a break at the top to enjoy the views. There is a cool cave right past the falls that you can walk into. It’s not a far hike but you do start at a high altitude and go up from there.

Went on a monday around noon Beautiful trail with views pretty much the whole time. Definitely closer to 7miles but totally worth it. lots of dogs off leash that are not under voice control.

The hike took us 5 hours in total, including resting time. So do mentally prepare yourself
