Lake Tahoe Hikes

(my latest project, started April 2015)

Hiking icon indicates day hike, tent icon indicates overnighters or day hikes best done as overnighters, and blue snowshoeing icon is for winter hikes.

Disclaimer: These Lake Tahoe hiking guides are not intended to be technical in nature.  I am making them to assist you in finding the best Lake Tahoe hikes that fit your ability level, geographic location, and time constraints, and I hope the pictures speak for the trails.  For more technical details about each hike, refer to the “Further Reading” link provided with each hike.
Map icons from Map Icons Collection.

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.
