Tahoe-Yosemite Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Along the northernmost section of the famed Tahoe–Yosemite Trail (TYT), hikers follow Meeks Creek from its placid terminus at Meeks Bay upstream into Desolation Wilderness, along a raucous course to its headwaters below Phipps Pass. The upper canyon boasts a string of seven picturesque lakes, precious jewels known locally as the Tallant Lakes, offering excellent opportunities for fishing, swimming, camping, or simply relaxing. Backpackers and equestrians with extra time will find connecting trails providing several options for longer journeys into the heart of the backcountry. Wildflowers are generally at their peak from late July to mid-August, but so are the mosquitoes. September offers mild weather, fewer people, and fewer blood-sucking pests."
