This strenuous six mile hike can be attempted either from the Davis Creek or Ophir Creek sides.

One trailhead is at Davis Creek Regional Park off Highway 395 in Washoe Valley. The other trailhead is six miles away at the west end of Tahoe Meadows along Highway 431. Taking the trail from Davis Creek can lead you to Rock Lake or past the remains of Upper and Lower Price Lake (destroyed by a landslide) and on to Tahoe Meadows. If you prefer a downhill hike, arrange to leave a vehicle at Davis Creek Regional Park and have someone drop you off at the upper trailhead.

Please Remember:

* Always carry drinking water.
* Hike in single file to keep trails narrow and wild.
* Prevent erosion, follow the trail and do NOT cut switch backs.
* Keep trails clean, pack out ALL paper and trash.
* Protect plants and wildlife.


Directions: From Crystal Bay, Take Highway 431 north to the west end of Tahoe Meadows. This will lead you to the Ophir section of the trail. Alternatively you can travel along Highway 395 to the Davis Creek regional Park.
