There’s another stretch of uphill here, and it’s the last stretch. Once you make it up this part, there’s a spot with some large boulders and that’s the highest point of the hike. It will have much more of the Tahoe characteristics. It’s a slightly downhill walk the rest of the way.It’s a pleasant walk to finish off that strenuous uphill. There will be lots of small critters scurrying about and birds chirping throughout the forest. The tall trees provide a shady canopy the rest of the way.
