Tahoe Rim Trail: Armstrong Pass to Star Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trip leads to two excellent destinations, Freel Peak, the highest summit in the Tahoe Basin, and Star Lake, one of the basin’s highest lakes. A lightly used section of the Tahoe Rim Trail takes you all the way to the lake, and most of the way to the summit. The remainder of the climb to Freel Peak follows a recently improved trail to the top, suitable for all but the most timid of trail hikers. Backdropped by the volcanic slopes of rugged Jobs Sister, the lake’s setting is quite picturesque, luring both dayhikers and backpackers to the serene shores. The view from Freel Peak is stunning in both scenery and scope."
