The Dirt Around Lake Tahoe: Must-Do Scenic Hikes takes readers on a journey to dozens of trails throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin and beyond. Alpine lakes, wilderness peaks and waterfalls are the rewards. This book contains a trail for everyone who likes to explore the outdoors. Each hike is rated based on scenic quality and difficulty. Some are flat, some not so much. Descriptions include what time of year to explore the various areas, historical facts, and details about what you may discover along the way. This book will become your must-have companion as you hike from one end of the lake to the other, and into the surrounding wilderness.
