This trail is straightforward and pleasant to walk the entire way. You’ll use a ridge at the foot of Mount Houghton to gain 200 feet in the ?rst 0.5 mile before crossing that ridge to traverse for the next 2 miles with no elevation gain. You’ll have great views of Lake Tahoe initially before your destination begins to dominate the vista. The ?nal 2.5 miles to the summit are interrupted only by a few switchbacks up the more than 1,700 feet to the top of this old volcano.
