HIKE WITH A RANGER TO SAND HARBOR OVERLOOK ON THE TAHOE RIM TRAIL
Join Nevada State Parks for a ranger-led hike to the Sand Harbor Overlook of the Tahoe Rim Trail on Saturday, Sept. 17. The magnificent views from the top stretch across the sparkling waters of Lake Tahoe and jagged peaks of the Sierra — and limited spots are still available.
Hikers will meet at Spooner Lake at 8:45 a.m. and carpool to the Marlette Peak Campground. From there the hike is two miles to the overlook.
This is a moderate hike (four miles total) so come prepared with sturdy boots, sunscreen, lunch, drinks or snacks and dress for the forecasted weather. Children eight years of age and older are welcome.
Four-wheel drive is necessary and reservations are required by calling 775-831-0494. To minimize the number of vehicles, please indicate if you’re willing to take other passengers. The hike is free, but park entry fees apply per vehicle and any donations to the park are greatly appreciated.
