FATMAP difficulty grade
Hike through sections of Tyrolean Downhill, Incline Flume, and Diamond Peak.
Starting at DP upper parking lot and moving clockwise allows most of the 1000' elevation climb to be done right away, and end with spectacular Lake Tahoe views from Diamond Peak.
Good shade through most of the hike.
Watch out for occasional mountain bikers, especially on the Tyrolean Downhill section of the trail.
