Great hike up to the highest peak along the ridge with amazing views down to Donner Lake, BUT be cautioned that there is no clear trail from peak at 7.1 mile all the way to 8.1 mile. It is a steep downward scramble that requires some bushwacking and rock scrambling. That one mile took us almost 2 hours trying to follow the All Trails “red line” that was really not a trail.
