5 Must Do’s On Your Next Fall Trip To Lake Tahoe

Fall is peak leaf-peeping time as Mother Nature rolls out a kaleidoscope of beauty and color. 

Here at the largest alpine lake in North America, the fall brings a vivid show of the turning leaves of golden aspens against the backdrop of Tahoe’s famous evergreens. 

Hope Valley

This highly recommended excursion delights with an explosion of color in the fall.  


Next door to Hope Valley lies the small town of Markleeville. Here, the aspens line local meandering creek beds.  

Ebbetts Pass

Even from the car, the trees are visible, but for a more immersive experience, you may want to stop for a picnic and a leisurely hike. 

Luther Pass

Just ahead is the Big Meadow Trailhead, where you can hike part of the Tahoe Rim Trail, adorned with creeks, evergreens like fir and pine —  and, of course, lots of aspens showing off their fall colors.
