Recommended trail map: Lake Tahoe Basin Trail Map
Waterproof, tear proof, and highly detailed. $11.99. Covers Fourth of July Lake to the south, and all the way north to Stampede Reservoir. Always in my pocket.
Floating Island & Cathedral Lakes are a great intermediate stop to Mt Tallac, or just a final destination for a short South Lake Tahoe hiking trail.
The Twin Lakes hiking trail near Incline Village is a must-do hike after good winters, when these shallow lakes are full of crystal clear emerald water.
