Awesome hike. The stroll up to the waterfall is gorgeous and fairly easy. You then gradually climb with a couple of small water crossings until you reach the 1 mile to the summit sign. Then it gets pretty strenuous to the peak, but the views are so worth it. Alternate trail back was refreshing as it was fairly empty compared to the main trail. Part of its fire road, but you see a pond and great views of Tahoe, plus it makes it more of a loop.
