“A semi-secret trail leading to a rocky peak with stunning views.”— Nick Wilder
Soon after, the trail gets rockier, and you emerge from the trees. The trail gets hard to find as you enter a large area of talus. There are many cairns, but they seem to be all over the place. Find your path of least resistance and keep chugging along straight up to the summit. Do some fun scrambling up to the final rocky outcrop and enjoy huge views of all of Lake Tahoe.
Once you've taken it all in, carefully make your way back through the talus slope to return to your car.
