Round Lake Professional Review and Guide
"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."
--Jordan Summers, Five-Star Trails: Lake Tahoe: 40 Unforgettable Hikes in the Central Sierra Nevada (Menasha Ridge Press).
This is one of my favorite trails. As of May 1st 2018 it was still covered in snow about 80% of the time!
