The views are breathtaking (as is the elevation gain). As mentioned before, it's heavily used by mountain bikers.
On the way back, we decided to take the Tahoe Rim Trail to BP (Diamond Peak - 8,540 feet) and then the Incline Flume Trail (it will add an extra 9 miles to the hike, but it's totally worthwhile, with unique views of Washoe Lake.
