The hike takes you to the summit of Freel Peak (10,886 ft) - the highest peak in the Tahoe region. From there you continue onwards to to Job's Sister (10,823 ft) and finally to Job's Peak (10,633 ft) before finally descending back to the trailhead. The hike involves a lot of elevation gain, and most of the time is spend close to or above 10,000 ft. There is now water along the way so be sure to carry plenty. The summits can be quite windy so a light jacket would be useful.

Don't go counter clockwise! The Jobs sister to Jobs has no trail and very loose gravel. Took all of our energy :/
