Fallin’ for Spring in South Lake Tahoe

Spring 2017 in South Lake Tahoe is shaping up to be an extension of winter for all ski and snowboarding enthusiasts, but it is also sprinkled with days that are ideal for hiking fanatics. While the extra wet season has done wonders for the lake levels and snowfall on the mountains, it has also created even more plentiful streams and cascading waterfalls to adventure to.

Waterfall Hikes Around SLT

Hike: Cascade Falls – this 1.6 mile hike takes you above Emerald Bay and beyond Cascade Lake to incredible heights with excellent rocks for picnicking on.


Stay: Heavenly Mountaintop – this 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home keeps the theme of up-high views going as you have space to sprawl out in multiple living areas atop the mountainous neighborhood on Bridle Road.

Hike: Glen Alpine Falls – these falls promise widespread beauty rushing over a span of rocks just beyond Fallen Leaf Lake. The lower falls are accessible from the one-lane road off of HWY 89 beyond the Fallen Leaf Lake campground. If you’re looking for more of a challenge, you can do this 5.3 mile route to glimpse more falls and surrounding nature. Directions: 

Stay: Paul’s South Shore Escape – this 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home offers restoration in its upstairs living area with all new electronics, appliances, and furnishings, plus a spacious backyard with a hammock strung between the tall trees to continue your love of the outdoors.

Hike: Horsetail Falls – a 2.8 mile hike in the El Dorado National Forest will get you to these flowing falls with swimming holes along the way, and Avalanche Lake at the very top for those willing to brave an extra distance
with a steep climb.

Dogs are welcome on this trail.

Stay: Blitzen Bliss – this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is just 17 miles down the road from the Horsetail Falls trailhead. The home offers views of surrounding mountain tops, a peaceful neighborhood, a spacious backyard, and a cozy living room to curl up in after the adventure.
