Schneider Camp Professional Review and Guide
"Anyone who has hiked in the Lake Tahoe area knows how popular this region can be. In fact, some hiking areas in the region are downright overcrowded, and for good reason. The scenery here is often spectacular, and the hiking is generally easy. This hike, traversing subalpine terrain for the entire distance, is by far the least-used trail in this area, save for the Showers Lake environs. Subalpine Showers Lake sees steady use, especially on summer weekends, but offers fine swimming and an exceptionally scenic setting."
