Tahoe Rim Trail: Star Lake and Freel Peak (Backpacking) Professional Review and Guide
"Journey past Lake Tahoe basin’s highest peak (10,881 feet) to the Tahoe areas highest lake (Star Lake at 9100 feet) while enjoying a well-graded, beautiful trail that is not too difficult. Enjoy views of Desolation Wilderness, Lake Tahoe, ancient juniper trees, and a favorite section of the lightly forested Carson Range. For a real treat, head up to Freel Peak and then over to Jobs Peak and Jobs Sister, bagging three of the four highest peaks in the Tahoe basin. Star Lake is a great destination for families with older children. To top it all off, it is almost always less crowded than nearby Desolation Wilderness."
