Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This moderate hike along the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) leads through a broad, flowerfilled meadow to a placid lake reflecting a snowcapped peak in the background.

The trail to this popular destination rises swiftly from the trailhead to Big Meadow, which is a destination in itself for many people. Other hikers, bikers, joggers, equestrians, and anglers continue a gentler ascent through this mixed conifer forest to aptly named Round Lake."

This is one of my favorite trails. As of May 1st 2018 it was still covered in snow about 80% of the time!
