Most people, when they think of Lake Tahoe, think of all the snow and skiing that you get during the winter. They don’t think of Tahoe as much of a summer playground, although once the snow melts there is enough hiking, camping, biking, boating, and swimming to keep you occupied all the way through October.
The folks at Tahoe.com are doing a great job at keeping everyone updated on all the stuff there is to do at the lake. There’s actually too much content for me to keep track of. They have hiking guides to the tops of Mt. Rose, Mt. Tallac, and Castle Rock. They have a guide to the best bike trails. They have articles on the area’s waterfalls, including a full article on Horsetail Falls. They even have the Mountain Mutt newsletter you can subscribe to, which this week includes the Top 10 things that belong in everyone hiker’s backpack. Number One on the list? Water, of course. Duh.
So if you’re thinking of spending some time at Lake Tahoe this summer, make a stop at Tahoe.com first. There’s probably more to do at the lake than you realized.
