Tahoe City to Brockway Summit Professional Review and Guide
"This section includes a several-mile jaunt along the edge of the truckee river canyon with excellent views of lake tahoe and the truckee river. much of the area has been logged extensively over the years, so you will see mostly smaller, newer growth trees and a wide variety of species as you move through the different elevations. The section above the truckee river has sev- eral incredible sugar pine and Jeffrey pine specimens. The trail has outstanding views of alpine meadows and squaw Valley. Watson lake, while not the most beautiful lake along the tahoe rim trail, is a pleasant shallow lake nestled among the trees two-thirds of the way through your hike."
