Tahoe Meadows is a wonderful trailhead—one of the most pleasant around the lake—from which to embark on a day hike. The route to Diamond Peak is mostly level, gaining the ridge in about 300 feet and then generally following it south through forests of Western white pine, lodgepole pine, red ?r, and Je?rey pine. The high point of the hike is slightly above 8,800 feet, while the destination is at 8,540 feet (and has a chairlift terminus attached to it). For the most solitude, avoid even-numbered days, when mountain bikes have access to this excellent trail.
