Did it counterclockwise. Climb up to Smedberg was longer than we thought. Beautiful!

Park on the street fronting the Cafe and walk up the hill to the trailhead. The cafe is a great place to grab breakfast/lunch after your hike. Beer and Coffee plus other drinks with food are available.

The hike is a steady climb up, with a very well marked wide trail. I did the hike on a Monday so traffic was far less than the weekend, however plan on having numerous mountain bikers pass you. The best views are in the first 1-1.5 miles of the hike. There are a few great lookouts to take photos and overlook the water and incline village.

I would recommend this hike on a weekday and for great views of the north/northeast part of the lake.

A steady climb leads you to some stunning views of Lake Tahoe with lots of boulders. It was gorgeous. Make sure to take the steep trek up and check out Monkey Rock. The trail is very sandy, which adds another layer of challenge, but is worth it for the views!

ended up going to peeler lake and stayed overnight. hike was challenging with a pack on but totally worth it

A slice of heaven! Different vistas at every turn. Today we saw the aspens were yellow and orange, amazing! 7 miles from lower Bristol cone to upper plus the extra walk to get back to lower Bristol cone. 42 degrees at 7:30 am.
