Description

From Round Lake Trail, take the turnoff onto Grouse Ridge Trail toward Glacier Lake. At the next junction, take a right onto Glacier Lake Trail and continue to follow signs for Glacier Lake. The trail on the way out is a bit of a climb so expect a little downhill on the way back to the trailhead. This trail has beautiful views of beautiful Tahoe National Forest!
