Beautiful hike! It was hard to find especially in the snow (October 21, 2017) but is a relatively easy hike. Park at the Tahoe meadow trail head parking lot off of Mt rose high way and County Road 340. Follow the signs for the Tahoe Meadows hike and when you get to the bridge you’ll see a sign for Ophir. We saw a few signs after that but made our own trail a little bit due to the snow. We used the all trail map to get back on the trail. After that it was an easier trail to follow. Mostly flat and downhill on the way out but had some step areas on the way back. We didn’t make it all the way to the lake because there was a large stream that we would have gotten very wet if we crossed. All in all a good hike. The pups loved it and the meadow allowed them to run around a lot!

Was planning to do the Ophir Creek Loop, but due to bad signage and incongruences between signs and the various maps in the park, we ended up getting lost and going all the way to Upper Lake. We were not prepared for the extra end of the trail we accidentally added one. Better signage would be extremely helpful for those of us who are directionally challenged.

We started at Tahoe Meadows trailhead and hiked down to Price Lake. Total hike was 8 miles (via Fitbit) and I would say moderate level for sure. After we hiked about 2 miles in we didn't see anyone until we started to head back which was very nice. When we got to the lake we had a picnic and had the lake all to ourselves. The lake is not swimmable but they had a nice campsite with a fire pit that would be fun to camp at. Nice waterfall to see when you get close to the lake. Definitely a workout but a very nice hike!

Tough trip from Davis Creek with a full pack, but Rock Lake is nearly full and there is another lake that is not on the map that is full, as well. Didn't go all the way to Tahoe Meadows, as the snow is still pretty high up there. Stayed over night at Rock lake. Beautiful views and no other hikers at all.

Very nice Sierra, Sequoia day hike. Impassable about 1/4 mile past Rock Lake fork due to snowpack. Rock Lake fork also blocked. Had to barefoot across the creek due to high melt. Very nice hike.
