We had read some information about this trail and we may have gone on the wrong one. Thought we would see a waterfall, but never did. It was a pretty trail and we had some beautiful views of Lake Tahoe, though.

It's quite difficult to find, but it's at the top of the road between Heavenly gondola area & the mall of shops with Radleys grocers in it. We parked near the horse riding area & wandered around looking for the start of the trail. Saw a notice board with map & followed the trail from there. Met several people who... More

Relatively easy hike especially for the first mile or so. Depending on fitness,skill level or age, some may find it more difficult. Scenery and vistas are beautiful. We planned on biking part of the way but the trail was too difficult for novice riders. We ended up parking the bikes and hiking (although some biked down). Due to the drought... More

Must go for hikers. Make sure to go to the right at the 4 tenths (.4) of a mile mark to the Vista site for great photo ops.. And then continuing on to the 1.1 mile mark there is a small "waterfall" and a little farther there are some more great views. I heard that the trail continues on to... More

We went on a Saturday morning around 8:30 a.m. and had no trouble finding parking. We hiked to the waterfall and back. I was surprised by how quickly we climbed because the hike didn't seem that steep. The views here are gorgeous. If we had had more time, I would have loved to have hiked past the waterfall!

My wife read me the reviews and made it sound like a small task. Well it was to the Vista but the hike to the waterfall farther up the trail was a bit more of a challenge for 60+ people. However on the trail we came across some maybe 70+ hikers. I guess I'm a bit out of shape. So... More

Amazing view of Lake Tahoe from top of the trail. A good 20-30 minutes hike in order to get to mid top in order to see above the tree line and in view of the Lake.

As a keen walker, I left my family in our hotel at around 8.30 am and walked into the park entrance - passing all the cut wood etc and turned left crossing the State line. Immediately after this, there is a pond on the right hand side - i heard a loud splashing sound and saw a rather large brown... More

If your looking for a short hike in Tahoe, this is definitely the winner. Van Sickle State Park is closed part of the year, but regardless you can park across the street and walk into it. The actual hike is only .4 miles and leads up to a breath taking viewpoint. If the park is closed and you have to... More
