Beautiful scenery. There was water, green grass, wildflowers, and butterfly's galore! This was a very different experience than when I did this hike last June!

Great spring time hike. We hike almost every weekend in Tahoe so to us this was a very easy trail. Lots of wildflowers right now, and a great family hike. There are mountain bikers on the trail as well but they were all courteous. A little rocky at first but lots of wild flowers, birds, and butterflies. Then the trail flattens out a bit and has some very pretty meadows with more wildflowers. Hike as far as you want and head back if you don't want to do the whole trail. Trail was not very crowded either for a Saturday morning/afternoon. I wouldn't go out here once it heats up as it would be too dry and hot and all the flowers will be gone by then too.

Wonderful trail! Perfect about of ease and difficult parts with a great view the whole way.

Not too crowded,even on a busy Saturday afternoon. We only passes around 10 people the whole time. There are a number of mountain bikers, and the trail can be skinny, so be careful.

Definitely worth the time!

I love this trail in the spring time. I have taken my dogs on the trail in the past and they have no problem. I would recommend this trail for someone who is not new to hiking though. It can be a good work out should you do the entire trail
