Along the north section of the famed Tahoe- Yosemite Trail, 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 plenty of connecting trails providing several options for lengthier journeys into the heart of the backcountry.
