Very nice hike that connects with other trails in the Desolation Wilderness. Be forewarned that it is nearly constant uphill from the Wilderness boundary to Rubicon Lake (I started at the Meeks Creek trailhead). I would say the trail is moderate to mildly strenuous. Decent views and lots of water along the way. probably best to go midweek as it is very crowded on the weekend.
