Went the second weekend in November. Perfect weather. There was some snow along the trail in higher elevations but it was still a very a nice, easy hike. Beautiful views. We only saw 1 other person on the way up (around 8 am) then didn’t see anyone for the rest of the morning. On the way back down (around noon) we encountered several people making their way up but it was spaced out enough to not be an issue. It was quiet and peaceful. Parking was no issue in the morning. Will definitely be doing this again

Beautiful views. You pass a lot of small cabins along the way so it is not a completely off the grid trail

I started this trail with my parents. The plan was just to get to Floating Island Lake. My stepdad wasn't used to the altitude, but my mom and I made it.
It was an easy hike for myself, but maybe a little steep or tiresome if you don't hike or aren't used to the altitude.
Make sure to turn around so you can see Lake Tahoe, it is a lovely view. This trail was pretty crowded on a Saturday morning. It was the day after a light snow, so there was snow patches and ice, which was nice.

Good and easy go.

Great

My husband and I did a short hike on this trail as we were leaving the South Tahoe area. We just did a leisurely 3 mile out and back. The views were lovely and the trail mostly flat. The weather was in the cooler side and a bit windy, but not too bad. This was my first time on the PCT and I hope to visit it again.

Fairly difficult beginning up the granite stairs but the climb is so worth it. amazing views along the trail and the lake is gorgeous. Will defiantly revisit this trail and the desolation wilderness area.

Love this hike! Great views and good balance of challenge and leisurely
