Tahoe Itinerary


A Local’s Suggestions on Things To Do:

Hiking & Biking:

  • Eagle Lake & Eagle Falls - a beginner-friendly 2 mile roundtrip hike. Ends at a beautiful lake surrounded by granite rock. Suggest you bring a lunch (from Verde) enjoy the view, and take a dip. (Note: there is a fee to park)

  • Vikingsholm - Visit a Scaninavian castle nestled in Emerald Bay! It is a 2 mile round trip hike down (and back up) a steep trail to the beach and castle. (Note: There is a fee to park)
