Ellis Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"All the work you’ll do climbing onto the ridge above Blackwood Canyon is more than rewarded by the views from the top, where you’ll look down onto Lake Tahoe in one direction and onto the polished granite domes and aprons of the Desolation Wilderness in the other. The goal is peaceful Ellis Lake, a rewarding destination for those with thighs of steel."
