This is a shorter route to Echo Peak. The route commences between the Angora Lakes. A short scramble on the ridge takes you to a trail that traverses to the end of the lake. Follow that trail up to the second ridge which leads to a day use trail that carries you to the Summit. Enjoy the views!

It was very difficult after the Agora Lakes. Very steep for long stretches.

Scrambled the first half from angora lake. Wiped me out, didn’t make it to peak. Nice trail friend showed me an easier decline. Only fell 3x. Had to swim in lake to cool and clean off. Uncomfortably crowded. People leaving trash.

Just went on this trail. It was super pretty but a bit grown over at the top - we had trouble finding where the trail went and turned back.

Trail was not easy to find and follow after the Upper Angora Lake, but beautiful views at the top were worth the backcountry scramble.

First to Review

Did this as a solo hike but had a horrible time trying to find the trail. I tried following the GPS as best I could, but there was no discernible trail the entire way up. Also, it's incredibly steep. If there were well maintained switchbacks this would be a 5 star hike. The view was beautiful - lots of waterfalls, great view of Tahoe and the Angora Lakes.
