Event Contact: Trish Jung: trish.r.jung@gmail.com
Event Location: Fallen Leaf Campground 2165 Fallen Leaf Road South Lake Tahoe

 

We will meet at Redwood Shores Elementary 9:30 AM for a 10 AM departure to Fallen Leaf Campground on the shores of Fallen Leaf Lake in South Lake Tahoe.  Lunch stop along the way.  Cooking in camp Saturday evening.  After breakfast in camp Sunday morning, we plan to hike Mt. Tallac.   We will make a sack lunch and pack trail snacks and plenty of water before heading to the trailhead. Mount Tallac Trail is a 10.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail that features a lake and is rated as difficult.  The jewel in the crown of mountains which ring Lake Tahoe, Mount Tallac promises unparalleled views from its summit 9,735ft above sea level. Unparalleled vistas await the Tahoe hiker on a memorable journey to the lake’s tallest peak.  For those who do not wish to summit Mt. Tallac, there is a possibility to only do half the hike and head back to camp at Cathedral Lake.  After the hike, we will return to camp to cook dinner and possibly do some fishing.  Monday morning we will make breakfast and break camp to head home.  We will stop for lunch along the way.
