Lake Tahoe and its surrounding areas provide nearly limitless opportunities for hikers. Whether you’re looking for easy day hikes, challenging long-distance treks, pristine mountain lakes or high alpine summits, you can find it here when you go backpacking in Lake Tahoe.

Mt. Tallac
Considered by many to be the premiere hike of the Lake Tahoe region, the Mt. Tallac Trail ascends over 3,300 feet to the summit of, you guessed it, Mt. Tallac. At the summit, expect views of the Desolation Wilderness, Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf Lake and Emerald Bay. Trailhead: Located on CA-89 approximately 3.5 miles north of South Lake Tahoe. A sign marks the trailhead.

Angora Lakes Trail
This easy half-mile hike is perfect for families, as well as those looking for a great place to swim or fish. Trailhead: From South Lake Tahoe, take CA-89 to Fallen Lake Road. Turn left, then left again at Tahoe Mt. road, where you’ll continue to Forest Service Road 12N14. Turn right at the large green gate, then continue to the parking lot.

Echo Lakes Trail
Hikers of all ages and ability levels can find something to suit their tastes on the Echo Lakes Trail. If you’re looking for a quick hike, take a short walk to the far end of Upper Echo Lake. For longer hikes, continue on Echo Lakes Trail to visit popular destinations such as Lake Aloha (12 miles) or Lake of the Woods and Ropi Lake (13 miles). Trailhead: From South Lake take Highway 50 towards Echo Summit and turn onto Johnson Pass Road. Stay left until you reach the parking area at Lower Echo Lake.

White Cloud Falls
This mellow trail winds through an alpine forest and deposits hikers at the base of White Cloud Falls. Along the way when you are backpacking in Lake Tahoe expect views of Cascade Lake. Trailhead: From South Lake Tahoe, head north on CA-89 for 9.4 miles until you reach Bayview Campground. Follow the campground 0.3 miles until you find the trailhead.

Rubicon Trail
The Rubicon Trail treats hikers to breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe, with a terminus at a historic mansion with views of Emerald Bay. Trailhead: The Vikingsholm parking area is located approximately 9 miles north of South Lake Tahoe on CA-89. The Rubicon Trail parking area is located in the D.L. Bliss State Park on CA-89, approximately 2.5 miles north of the Vikinsholm parking area.

When looking for rentals in Lake Tahoe and Truckee, why not consider a Vacation Rental home or Condo? You certainly want to make the most of your trip to North Lake Tahoe&Truckee and choosing the best place to stay for your family is an important piece of the success of your trip. Hotels and Motels are expected to be crowded and offer limited amenities with little or no kitchen facilities.  Rather than stay at a hotel in Lake Tahoe, why not stay in a Lake Tahoe Rental house or condo for your trip.  Rental homes & condos offer more space, full kitchen amenities and all the comforts of home.  To view the Best Rentals in Lake Tahoe, or to Rent a Cabin in Lake Tahoe, visit Tahoe Signature Properties’ website at www.TahoeSignatureProperties.com Or call Tahoe Signature Properties’ Vacation Rental Hotline at 530-562-4242.
