Mt. Tallac Trail
If you want to bag the tallest peak in the Tahoe area, Mt. Tallac is the hike you’re looking for. This roughly 10-mile round-trip hike has more than 3,200 feet of elevation gain, but on a clear day, you’ll be glad you did it. Views are stunning all along this trail. Some of the highlights include views over Fallen Leaf Lake near the start; Floating Island Lake; Cathedral Lake; and eventually an eye-popping panorama over Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf Lake, and the Carson Range.
