Family Friendly Definitely a great trail for the family. This trail is a little further out, but there are many turnoffs to make it shorter.

Description

From Round Lake Trail, take the turnoff onto Grouse Ridge Trail toward Glacier Lake. At the next junction, take a right onto Glacier Lake Trail and continue to follow signs for Glacier Lake. The trail on the way out is a bit of a climb so expect a little downhill on the way back to the trailhead. This trail has beautiful views of beautiful Tahoe National Forest!
