One of the most delightful, rewarding day-hike destinations in the Tahoe region, this high volcanic ridge between Donner Pass and Squaw Valley stands center stage to splendid views of the northern Sierra, Lake Tahoe, the mountains and high desert of western Nevada, and miles and miles of wide-open wildflower pastures. Campfire permit required for stove or fire.

Great day hike. Best in July to September when Mule Ear flowers are in bloom. Beautiful views from PCT with running streams until Sept.
