“A gorgeous hike with a hard scramble.”— Jennifer Maskell
Take Pine Meadow Trail, which can also be very crowded on weekends with some very noisy hikers. Once you get on Seven Hills Trail, it gets significantly less crowded and noisy. In less than a few tenths of a mile, you'll start up Diamond Mountain, a nice steep trail at first then a really good scramble to the top.
Make your way across the ridge for the views and a few easier descents. You can easily make it to Pine Meadow Lake descending Diamond Mountain via Pine Meadow Trail—it's totally worth the trip to cool your feet off in the lake!
