Reviews

I hiked this with a friend in December, the trail was snow covered but due to the amount of foot traffic (and dry conditions) it was easy to follow and didn't require anything other than shoes. We made a loop by taking the TRT (Tahoe rim trail) out and coming back on Castle Rock trail. It's fairly flat, the elevation gain is gradual, and there is some scrambling at the end if you want to climb atop Castle Rock (you can see the lake without the climb). Only bummer on the day was hiking out right before an amazing sunset...always stay for sunset.
