Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the United States and one of the clearest in the world. Renowned for its remarkable clarity since the days of Mark Twain, who camped on its lakeshore in 1861, this lake is a beautiful center piece to the grandeur of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains.It is also the focus of long-term monitoring, watershed management, and restoration programs.
This driving tour will follow the 72 miles of magnificent shoreline to visit scenic, historic and scientific sites around the lake. It will begin in South Lake Tahoe and proceed up the west shore toward Tahoe City. One of our stops on west shore of Lake Tahoe will be at Emerald Bay. Surrounded by sheer granite cliffs and beautiful forests, it is a famous location for scenic photographs and a popular entry point to the Desolation Wilderness Area. Further up the west shore, Tahoe City is where outflow from the lake is discharged into the Truckee River, which flows down through the city of Reno and ultimately out to terminal Pyramid Lake in the Great Basin. We will visit the UC Davis Eriksson Education Center at the Historic Fish Hatchery, near Tahoe City, and then travel east through Kings Beach to Incline Village for a tour of the Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences. While enjoying one of Lake Tahoe’s beautiful beaches, we’ll take a break for refreshments. The tour will then drive up to Spooner Summit and down past picturesque Glenbrook on its way back to South Lake Tahoe.
