    July run through the Rubicon from Joon Lake to Rubicon Springs. Tough trail, lots of bangs and scraping.

    Be careful, I had a stock jeep and there was one point in the trail that it requires a spotter with a really good line and all the ground clearance I had to get past. Besides that the rest of the trail was decent

    Crowded parking area for a weekday. Welcome to Covid-19 summer time. Went up the old trail and had some difficulty staying on it and also could use some trail maintenance around a few dead falls. There were a few people at the lake but everyone was respectful so it remand peaceful. Hiked down the official trail on the way back to the trailhead.

    Great wildflowers! Hardly anyone here except got every crowed when you get to the emigrant lake trail. Turned around because it was too busy.

    First time I hiked this route. It has spectacular views of three different basins which are walled with amazing volcanic rock formations.

    One of the best reasons to like this trail is that it’s so remote, most people never make it out this far. You have to start by crossing the Hell Hole Reservoir dam, so be prepared that they may be doing work on the dam making it impassable. The trail parallels the shore of the reservoir on the south side. It takes ascents and descents along the hillside as it makes its way toward the head of the reservoir. About five miles from the locked gate, you’ll come to a semi-improved camp near the shore. There are about 8-10 campsites with picnic tables and fire pits. They also have old USFS stoves, but most are in disrepair and are not functional. Permits are not required, so camps are first come, first serve. Note that the camp is popular for fisherman traveling by boat so weekends may get crowded. Beyond the camp, I found that the trail petered out after about a mile. There’s a way to get to the headwaters of the Rubicon River, but I couldn’t find it. The entire area is characterized by granite outcrops, sub-alpine wildflowers and tall cedars and pines. There are reports of a lot of rattlesnakes in the area but I didn’t see any. Poison oak is present on the trail; uncharacteristic for this elevation. Also, there’s plenty of evidence of bears in the area. Caution should be taken.

    I’ve been on this trail quite a few times over the years. But this is my first hike on this trail in over two years. And it is DEFINITELY a nice one that brings me back. As well, it is a fairly challenging trail. This makes it good training for other climbs elsewhere (think Shasta and Whitney), as well as a good hike for general fitness. One thing I DID notice this go-around is that some work has been done on some sections of this trail since my last hike here. Specifically, steps have been made at some of the steeper sections. This helps to make the descent a whole lot less treacherous. As of May 25, there is still snow on the ground for around the last half mile and 400 vertical feet of climbing. But this is nothing too serious. It can easily be negotiated even without microspikes. There are no dangerous icy spots. And post holing is not too much of an issue. You sink into the snow just enough to make coming down safe and relatively speedy. On the other hand, if you REALLY don’t want to hike on snow, I suspect that this part of the trail will be largely (if not entirely) clear within the next two weeks. If not, hiking on snow should at least be avoidable. So come on out and hike! This is one you won’t regret.

    Started from the Horsetail Falls parking lot, followed the Horsetail trail to its end before turning left to scramble up the class 3 granite. Then made another left turn to get to follow the contour lines to climb the ridge towards Pyramid Peak. Reached the Summit above the large boulder field, scrambled back down and hiked out by Rocky Creek to Hwy 50 before walking back along the 50 to the car. Took us just under 11 hours.

    Water flowing everywhere over slabs of granite with mesmerizing patterns. The trail isn’t on most maps so it’s easy to miss. Best to go when the snow is melting or a couple days after a rain.

    Short and sweet. We swam in the lake. Looks like a nice place to camp. I think you get much bang for you buck in terms of a short hike but feeling like you're remote and getting a good dose of nature.

    Great hike, going to Winamucca Lake first is an easier accent than going to Round Top first. Next time we will add 4th of July Lake, adding 3 miles and another 1200 feet of elevation gain to theb hike.

    Have always wanted to do this hike. Thought by now the snow would have been melted - No! Approached base from Winnamucca Lake side. Loose lava on way to top. Beautiful views!

    Hard to get to the trail head, too many wineries offering excuses to bail out on the hike. Trail has had minimal maintenance so you have to step over or under some downed trees but it doesn’t require much effort. Lots of old railroad ties makes you wonder about the history of the area. Nice trail for the dogs with a couple of water crossings in May that will probably dry up in the summer but it ends with Steely Creek at the end. A great picnic spot.

    Parking is convenient but no restrooms. Beautiful scenery with some very steep sections. Pay attention to the trail markers (rock cairns), as it’s easy to miss a turn in the rocky stretches. My favorite spot for a quick hike.

    This is a short hike with a lot of vertical. 3.2 miles and 4000ft straight up. There is no trailhead and you have to park on the south side of 50 and run up the bank on the north side then pick up one of the several use trails going uphill. There are few views going up the canyon until you climb up onto the ridge at mile approx 2.5 and then the views are beautiful. North easterlies of 10-20mph had blown away the smoke from the deadly Camp fire and there was no indication of smoke or fire. The last 250 vertical is all big boulder Class 2, and does not work for dogs. Views on top were great. Big Lake Aloha below looked empty with just a few ponds. I was hoping for a way down there so I could make a one way out to Lake Echo next year but I guess that is not so easy. All told a good workout. Took me and my daughter 5 hours out and back.

    Chilly, but beautiful. For the most part an easy hike, the last .5 mile towards Lyons Lake was difficult. Amazing views, and spectacular fall colors.
