Summer Supplement - 13
One of the most popular hikes
in the southeast Lake Tahoe
area is ascending Mount Tallac.
It is approximately 9.5 miles
long - round trip, but it is not
an easy trail. However, it is
truly photogenic, thus
rewarding and memorable.
From the top, peer down to
see Emerald Bay and other
smaller lakes and wilderness
areas along the way. Be
prepared to ascend over 3,500
feet. It is a varied trail with
many terrain changes from
forested areas and alpine lakes
closer to the trail head to loose
rock and boulders near the
summit. Bring plenty of water,
and perhaps some trail mix.
Or, you can see this
beautiful spot - Emerald Bay the easy way by boarding either
the Tahoe Gal from Tahoe City
or the M.S. Dixie II from
Zephyr Cove near Stateline.
