Description

Take a short hike and scramble up some granite boulders to get into Desolation Wilderness near Lake Tahoe, CA. This view is best during sunset, so setup camp and prepare for the incredible oranges, reds, and purples...

All-Day Run: Parking found at the Pyramid Creek Trail. Only 3 miles away.

Snowy: One nasty spot around ~8900 feet is in a section that's quite difficult to begin with - be careful coming down!

Dry, Muddy, Mostly Dry, Fallen Trees - Unmarked trails but really you can just follow up the river or water falls and you'll eventually tunnel up to rock trails/climbing kind of and eventually reach the top. beautiful and so worth the hike
