Parks & Nature

Up against the West Slope Sierras. Hike around the lake or take a day hike into Desolation Wilderness. This is our family tradition that my kids are now passing onto their children.

Great views of Lake Tahoe.
Echo Lakes Trailhead (recgovnpsdata)
Great views of Lake Tahoe.
One of our favorite places to go. More great views of Lake Tahoe and the granite peaks of Echo Peak. Only open Summer time and early fall. Recommend getting a lemonaid from the resort and rent a kayak to boat around the lake. If you are brave enough jump off the cliffs for a memorable experience.

Best Apple Hill experience without the crowds of High Hill. The strudel and pies are my favorite. The vendors offer all sorts of different interesting items to purchase. Best jerky around can be found there. Tell them I sent you and they will treat you extra special.

Great low sugar baked goods. Not open on Saturdays. Onsite museum will give you the history of our area from purchasing the land from the locals with beads (where have we heard that before) to the evolving agriculture farming.
