Five-star trails.
Summary Covering the region surrounding the 22-mile-long lake, author Jordan Summers guides hikers along 40 of the region's best trails--all located within 25 miles of Lake Tahoe’s shoreline. Trekkers can easily find the perfect hike with the complete trail descriptions for 27 day hikes and 13 overnight destinations. An accurate map, directions to the trailhead with coordinates for GPS use, and an elevation profile of each trail prepare hikers with the full picture of the route ahead. Generally intended for outdoors-people of all ages and abilities, Five-Star Trails: Lake Tahoe describes great hikes from the Desolation, Mt. Rose, Granite Chief, and Mokelumne Wilderness areas and along sections of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail and portions of the Tahoe Rim Trail. While ranging across forest- and granite-covered terrain to more than a dozen peaks and several dozen lakes, hike profiles include details on natural history, geologic features, and places of historic note. With Five-Star Trails: Lake Tahoe, hikers will follow in the footsteps of pioneers, such as Kit Carson and the historic Donner Party, along the Pony Express Trail and the Emigrant Trail, often with stunning vistas of Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay, Fallen Leaf Lake, or the Crystal Range.--Provided by publisher.
