    Fantastic Peak! Less travelled than Tallac, but equally as spectacular. I took the Freel peak use trail. In hindsight I would rather have done the Armstrong pass route, slightly longer but well worn. The use trail takes you up a sandy couloir that is quite a slog to reach the TRT and the Freel Peak trail and the last mile. Stay on the trails and don't cut the unnecessary looking switchbacks as the endangered Tahoe draba grows here. Marmots up top and don't forget to sign the book.

    No messing around, switchbacks at the start after you cross 89, but they aren't bad with some nice steps. The reward is a very nice meadow with a creek if you need to filter some water or even camp if you arrived late in the day on an multiday backpacking trip. The meadow leads to a nice forest with a packed, but dusty trail at times. You gain elevation in the forest until you reach the ridge above the lake. A descent down to the lake is a short hop and not bad on the way out if you are doing a out and back. Nice lake with interesting geology in this area.

    It's a great little trail. You get a nice overlook of Emerald Bay around the half way point. Continue up to Granite lake, take a swim, have lunch and hike out. Parking at Vista Point is the hard part.
