This first section of the TYT, from Meeks Bay to a Sno-Park just west and south of Hwy. 50’s Echo Summit, lies almost entirely within one of California’s best-known wilderness areas, Desolation. The section is never far from a road, and frequent glimpses of Lake Tahoe may call forth images of noisy casinos and crowded beaches. Yet near the trail you may find many campsites that possess a feeling of utter remoteness.
