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.
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.
The 10-mile Lake Sylvia hike near South Lake Tahoe is a great option for an overnighter, secluded at a scenic lake in Desolation Wilderness.
