This trail is located on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. The moderate hike takes you along the northernmost part of the unofficial Tahoe-Yosemite Trail. After following a road for approximately 1.3 miles, the trail passes a small spring, parallels Meeks Creek and continues upward into a forested valley. A chain of alpine lakes can be seen before the trail ascends 1,000 feet up a series of switchbacks leading to Phipps Pass.

A wilderness permit is required for this trail. Day hikers can obtain a permit at the self-service stations located at the trailheads. Overnight users must obtain a permit and pay fees in person from a Forest Service office or the Forest Service Visitor Center.
