  • A great afternoon hike for a cool day. Had large sections of exposed trail which can get hot in sunny days. Hike is moderately strenuous so bring water and give yourself plenty of time. I would not leave any later than 2pm if you aren't camping up there.
  • Great Tahoe area hike. Good climb at first but flattens out near the top. Beautiful lakes, great for swimming or relaxing. Easy out and back for the casual hiker
