Amazing views at the top, of course, made this trek worth the climb. The trail is wide and mostly a series of ski runs. Overall it was a good experience but I didn’t enjoy looking at all the ski resort machines along the way. You can find the trailhead behind the lodge at the end of the parking lot.

This is a great little hike through the trees with a rushing stream on the side, even at the end of a dry summer. The trail climbs from the Diamond Peak ski area to a high point, then descends to connect with the Flume Trail. At the top there is a very nice view of the lake. Well worth the walk but the trip up is worthwhile by itself.

The trailhead is not well marked and the Google map in the app will send you astray. The trail starts on the left side of the Diamond Peak base parking lot and parallels the road into the Tyrolean Village complex. There is no parking at Tyrolean Village, so park in the big lot at the start. Once the trail leaves the condos behind, it's great. Keep a eye out for bikers coming down.
