Parks and Nature in Lake Tahoe

Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Lake Tahoe is, in essence, a scenic natural park setting all in its own. Nearby Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park is home to Spooner Lake and backcountry, a nature lover’s paradise, where giant aspens frame the lake, and where hiking and mountain biking are just two of the many ways to explore the area.

Situated just to the east of Incline Village, Washoe Lake State Park offers stunning views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. This popular outdoor adventure area is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including bald eagles and American white pelicans. Pack a picnic, grab your camera, and spend the afternoon enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.

The rocky coves, mountain views, and pristine waters are what make Sand Harbor the peaceful destination that it is. This breathtaking spot surrounded by majestic pines is straight out of a postcard or painting. Rent a kayak and paddle out into the serene waters for a truly relaxing afternoon.

Leisurely stroll along paths and boardwalks on the Tahoe Meadows Interpretive Loop Trail, where open meadows and meandering creeks are home to abundant wildlife, birds and wildflowers. This sublime hike is both short and sweet, as is the Stream Environment Zone, where several bridges lead the way over streams and creeks on a quaint little hiking trail near the village.
