Monument Pass–Star Lake Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Mountain bikers and strong hikers will revel in this extended loop trip utilizing the Cold Creek, Monument Pass, Tahoe Rim, and Star Lake trails. Along the way are shady stretches along vigorous Cold Creek, wide-ranging views at the upper elevations, and an opportunity to visit beautiful Star Lake at the base of rugged Jobs Sister. The lake offers wonderful spots for campsites for those who wish to stay overnight. The 16.8-mile distance and 3,000-foot elevation gain make for a long day hike, and the final 2.5-mile descent on oftentimes-steep High Meadows Road can create a tedious end to the trip."
