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.
