This trip has something for everyone: several mountain lakes perfect for swimming, spectacular volcanic rock formations, and incredible wildflower displays in Meiss Meadows and in a bowl just north of Showers Lake (mid-July is your best bet). In fact, that bowl may be the most magical mile of the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT)—it has cascading streams, leftover snowfields, castlelike rock formations, and wildflowers galore.
