Multi Light, Multi Switch Wiring Diagram

I have a hallway with three reccessed lights, and require two switches at each end. Does anyone have a clear wiring diagram that I can use? I've did multi-switch single light runs, but this is the first time I've used multiple lights, I think I understand what needs to happen, but would like a diagram to confirm. Thanks.

I did a quick search and found this

as you can see, there are a lot of options. It mainly depends on what is easiest for you to do. I would pefer to run the power wire into the switch's box(es). I think it helps me keep things clear in my head. I would use the first diagram...scroll down on the page a bit.... from that light, run a 12/2 or 14/2 to the next light....connect color to color...then to next light.

Anyway, here's the link:


I hope this is what you're looking for! Good luck!
