  • Profile

    Rising above Fallen Leaf Lake on the southwestern shore, Mt Tallac is one of the most iconic peaks in the Lake Tahoe basin. There are a few routes to the top, varying in intensity and length, but all are challenging and strenuous, especially in the final ascent to the summit. The reward is that view, though – Fallen Leaf and Cascade Lakes, Emerald Bay, and across Lake Tahoe to Cave Rock and beyond. This is a popular destination, and you are likely to meet backpackers and day hikers of all fitness levels. The wildflowers and views into Desolation Wilderness make for a beautiful hike.
