Why This Mountain?
I chose this mountain because I love hiking in the Tahoe region. Freel peak offers amazing views and is the highest peak in the area. This is also a peak I have not yet done so it offers me the ability to explore new terrain.
Mountain & Route Facts
Freel Peak is the highest peak in the Carson Range, El Dorado County and the Tahoe Basin. There are several routes up to Freel Peak, some of which are best for winter mountaineering, snowboarding and skiing and others which are better for summer routes due to the ability to drive further into trail access.
