LAKE TAHOE HIKING

LAKE TAHOE’S AMAZINGLY CLEAR WATERS ARE CRADLED BY SECLUDED BAYS AND SURROUNDED BY HUNDREDS OF TRAILS AND PEAKS.  THE SKIES ARE DEEP BLUE AND CAN BE CLOUDLESS FOR WEEKS ON END. IT IS TRULY A HIKER’S PARADISE!

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Begin with a hike on a scenery packed trail that dips up and down along an undeveloped, secluded portion of Lake Tahoe’s shoreline. You’ll visit historic Vikingsholm, a Scandinavian castle perched on the pristine shores of Emerald Bay.

Another day, you will explore a secret trail that’s not on any maps and is a local’s favorite. Small streams flow lazily over our trail as we walk among the tiger lilies, larkspurs and shooting stars.

One of our favorites: the day we hike (or ride the cable car) 2,500 feet to the top of Squaw Valley USA, site of the 1960 Winter Olympics. After reaching the summit at over 8,500 feet, we hike part of the Pacific Crest Trail (the 2,000+ mile trail that extends from Mexico to Canada) and are rewarded with views of the entire Tahoe Basin.

Our trip would not be complete without a hike to secluded Ellis Lake. Relax and swim at the lake or go on to the summit of Ellis Peak (8,740 feet), where the reward is a captivating panoramic view of Lake Tahoe, Desolation Wilderness and much more.
