Top Hikes to Do This Fall in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe
Don't miss Diamond Peak's Summer BBQ & Community Fair (details below!)
Where did everyone go? Yep, it's the beginning of the fall season when our international destination takes on a slower pace during what is, without question, one of the best times to be exploring the High Sierra.
To get you in the mood to head to the Lake, we asked our staff at Sun Bear Realty and Property Management in Incline Village, NV what they like to do on their days off. All offered their insight and all included at least one of their favorite spots to hike within our town or just on the outskirts on the East Shore.
Wherever you go, be sure to take the time to bring home some photos to share on our Facebook and with your friends near and far.
Be it east, west, north, or south, there are trails for the novice to the most advanced. Before you go, download their interactive and printer-friendly trail map. From this point on, you're on to an adventure of a lifetime that is wrapped with some of the most spectacular scenery to be found.
We like to park at the Tunnel Creek Station, grab a hearty lunch to go, and head up the Trail which offers jaw-dropping views of Lake Tahoe. You can go north or south on the trail from this point on. Do note it's a popular trail for mountain bikers so keep your ears and eyes open as you wander in and around the East Shore's magnificent terrain.
Here's another family favorite - and it's an easy one as well. Just park at the base of Diamond Peak and follow the popular Freeway Run to the top. Don't forget a picnic to enjoy at Snowflake Lodge where the sights of the Lake are some of the best to be found!
On Sunday, September 8th, be sure to go to their annual Summer BBQ and Community Fair at the Base Lodge. Will Bill's BBQ will offer a delicious lunch where you can mingle with the locals and check out what's new for the upcoming ski season. In the parking lot, the Washoe County Sherrif's Office will be there to answer any questions you may have ... and don't forget to bring the kids to get a picture with a RAVEN helicopter, SWAT Team and K-9 crew as well!

Trail runners and mountain bikers love this trail as well so keep your eyes and ears open for their arrival and quick departures.
