This was a fairly difficult trail, our group started at Fallen leaf lake and went up Tallac. This was a long trek up Tallac that left our group feeling exhausted at the top. After that section the rest of the hike was very enjoyable with great lakes and sights along the way. The difficult elevation gain going up Tallac to start the hike made this hike a very difficult overnight-er, I would not recommend doing the loop this way if trying to complete in 2 days 1 night.
