For those visiting Northeast Lake Tahoe who enjoy the outdoors, the hike to Mt. Rose and adjacent Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) is not to be missed! The wildflowers in mid-July were spectacular. Wildlife near Mt. Rose Summit included a big, beautiful buck and a marmot.

One of the best trail systems in the world! The main TRT is 165 miles long and roughly follows the ridge line around the Tahoe Basin. It also interconnects with hundreds of miles of other trains to create unparalleled access to the jewel of the Sierra.

This trail is a remarkable achievement by, mostly volunteers, and has been completed in recent years for hiking around Lake Tahoe. There are many staging areas. Horses, hikers, and in some areas, bikes. So many dramatic vistas! Volunteers continues to maintain this trail system and I highly recommend it.

We've hiked a number of parts of this trail. We just hiked out at the top of Kingsbury Grade. We did the south trail near Heavenly Valley's NV run. Great views of the Carson Valley and Lake Tahoe from the rim. Make sure you carry water and enjoy the quiet and the views.

This is a must-do hike while in the Tahoe region. It's a well-marked trailhead off Hwy 431 with restrooms and parking. Start behind the restrooms and up some stairs to gain access to the trail. This is a 10 mile hike out and back, but you can stop halfway through at the waterfall. The views are stunning. The first 2.5... More

We took a short hike here on the TRT to the brockway spur overlook which offerred superb views if most of the northern Tahoe shore. It was uncrowded and worth the effort. Part of this trail was.used for.the 200mile trail race as we saw some directional signs during our hike. The trail signs we saw looked as though they had... More

I live in the Tahoe basin and have hiked many SEGMENTS of the TRT. The trail has become a totem for young people - a bucket list item - an achievement - the golden chalice. It is more of that than a great hike. I enjoy the back country of Tahoe. This trail skirts the ridges and high places with... More

I have been there 4-5 times lost count? I always go off season. Off season meaning not during snow skiing season and not during the summer, late spring....... early fall. I find this is the best time frame for me. No children....... there in school and no lines throughout the entire region. That reduces the time wasted in store lines,... More

Highly recommend to add to your bucket list. If you are in the area this is a must-do activity. We rented bikes from Max at Flume Trail Bikes in Incline Village. He shuttled us to Tahoe Meadows/Mt Rose Trailhead. We peddled about 14 miles on the Tahoe Rim Trail, then peddled around Marlette Lake and over to the stunning Flume... More

This is a gorgeous day hike! If you happen to be staying at The Ridge in So. Shore Tahoe, the trail can be picked up from the upper tennis court. Otherwise, you can park at the Stagecoach base camp for Heavenly Valley and the trailhead is right there. Within 45 minutes, you will see some absolutely amazing views of the... More
