Saxon Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Most of the traffic on the Saxon Creek Trail is from mountain bikers attempting to complete the route locals refer to as Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. Hikers should find the trail to be quite enjoyable as well, especially beyond the first couple of miles, where the route becomes off limits to motorized vehicles.

The mostly forested trail travels upstream through the drainage of Saxon Creek to meet the Tahoe Rim Trail, continues climbing to flower-covered Freel Meadows, and then eventually reaches scenic Hell Hole Viewpoint."
