Spend a day and climb up one of our most revered mountains in Lake Tahoe called Mt. Tallac! The hike has a spectacular view of Fallen Leaf Lake, Lake Tahoe and Desolation Wilderness, this strenuous hike up the front side is well worth the effort. The first part of the trail to Floating Island and Cathedral lakes is moderate and can be enjoyed by the novice hiker. Beyond Cathedral Lake, the trail becomes steep and strenuous as it continues up the front face of Mt. Tallac. The trailhead is located approximately 3-1/2 miles north of South Lake Tahoe on Highway 89. Look for the Mt. Tallac Trailhead sign directly across from the entrance to Baldwin Beach. Turn left drive to the trailhead parking. As for hiking up the back side you will turn off the Fallen Leaf Lake exit on hwy 89 right after Camp Richardson and proceed to the very south end of the lake. There is a trailhead and parking in the back of the general store. You will love the vistas and views of Pyramid Peak next to Mt. Tallac. The back way is longer as it loops around a lot more of the mountain but it is an easier climb for those who are not in the best of shape. There are lakes and streams on the way and some gorgeous old Tahoe trees to gaze upon! Have fun and be safe! Happy Trails!
