Owner description: Paved bike path with views of Lake Tahoe.

Living in the desert in AZ, our annual Anniversary trip to Lake Tahoe, NV. brought a wonderful cool reprieve from our hot summers! It was 72 degrees during the day (not 117), and sunny and gorgeous....as usual. The hotel-Harrahs--surprised us with a nice room, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, balloons, a free lake cruise, etc. Of course we are frequent gamblers for Harrahs...that helps! But our annual vacation in Tahoe was a little different this year....as the bike path along the lake is under heavy construction.....very difficult to enjoy walking along the lake as we usually do. But when it's completed it will be wonderful! Harrahs was a great hotel....we dined on our anniversary at Friday's Station with a sunset view of the Lake. All in all.....a nice place to visit. They have tightened up the slot machines quite a bit though....didn't win at all.

Staff was excellent (especially Steven) in assisting us for a great bike ride. The bike path is easy and great for exercise. This bike rental place has bicycles that can accommodate all ages. We took Steve's advice and stopped at the Beacon Bar & Grill for a lake shore dining. It was definitely a good restaurant choice. Don't forget to bring bottles of water for the ride. This is a pleasant family activity.

We were the first guest of the day at 8:00 am. The owner greeted us and got our bikes. He was very helpful in guiding us on our way. He told us where to go and what to see. It is right on the bike path which makes it ideal as leaving point. The Cost is fair and this is a must do activity in tahoe.

The people are genuinely nice and only the visitors from bay area make it unsafe. There are flat biking paths for families including the tahoe keys path leading to tahoe keys beach. There are paths past camp richardson along lake winding thru forrests. Biking, hiking, beach, tahoe has it all.

Started out at Anderson Bike rental on hwy89 at 13th ave, about a mile from the Y (intersection of hwys 50 and 89). They're really friendly, but not sure if they're just angling for tips. He had a nice spiel about what to see and do on the bike path, and was very patient with us and our youngins.

Bike path winds through beautiful woods with glimpses of the lake. Pope Beach and Tallac Park are nice access points to see the lake up close. Kind of secret spots, so don't go telling all your friends...

Camp Richardson, about 15 minutes along the path, offers snacks. In the colder months, like now (early November), enjoy hot chocolate at the Camp Richardson general store, and sit by the nice warm fire.

We came last summer and had terrific hot club sandwiches here and enjoyed them on the grass. Also in Camp Richardson is some ice cream/coffee place across the street from the general store. DELICIOUS homemade icecream, giant scoops for half the price of coldstone. This one is not that secret. The grass outside was definitely happening with locals and tourists alike.

Right now, the salmon are spawning! There is a nature preserve near the end of the bike path starting near the bridge over the creek. Look in the creek for the salmon hanging out, post spawn, smoking their cigarettes. Awesome!
