Ellis Lake and Ellis Peak Professional Review and Guide
"Ellis Lake and Ellis Peak occupy a ridgetop that lies between Blackwood and McKinney canyons. Blackwood Canyon contains a paved road, while a major off-highway vehicle track runs through McKinney Canyon. In contrast, Ellis Lake and Peak are an island backcountry sanctuary. Although the first 0.7 mile of trail are as steep as any in the Tahoe Basin, few routes reach both a scenic lake and a 360- degree mountaintop vista in such a short distance."
