On the Hill: Ride the Nifty 50 Trolley

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different Lake Tahoe adventure every day.

Today's activity: Ride the Nifty 50 Trolley.

Conditions: Today's adventure is a trip along the shores of Lake Tahoe on the classic Nifty 50 Trolley. Michelle catches the trolley out of the Y in South Lake and takes it to Emerald Bay for a day of hiking and playing at the beach. The Nifty 50 offers locals and tourists a chance to really sightsee, as you leave the driving to the pros. For just $5 for adults, you can hop on and hop off at any one of a number of beaches and spots between South Shore and Tahoe City. Kids ride for just $2.50.

Today's weather: A thunderstorm is on tap for today, most likely in the afternoon hours so watch those skies. Hopefully some of the lingering smoke will get taken down. Temps will hit 80 today, however, so get ready for a humid day at the Lake— National Weather Service
