On this beginner snowshoe adventure, we will be hiking with snowshoes, immersing ourselves in the forest on a homemade secluded winter trail. This activity is perfect for those wanting to explore outside this winter but not wanting to commit to a big hike. Starting, we gather our equipment, have a brief introduction, then hit the trail. We will spend the first half of our experience hiking up 200-500’ (depending on the group) in elevation at a relaxed and enjoyable pace. Up the mountain, we go through uninterrupted Tahoe National Forest. Guiding through the alpine scenery your guides will be sharing stories of the area, history, as well as local flora and fauna. Roughly halfway, we find peaceful open meadows covered in snow. As we explore, reflective light from snow crystals flicker with every step. We meander down the hill enjoying mountain vistas of the surrounding area and ski resorts of Palisades Tahoe. This hike is a perfect outing into the Sierra Nevada mountains. We return back to our vehicles finishing a loop trail. Due to the seclusion, seeing another person is highly unlikely. So step off the beaten path and allow us to show you a true mountain outing you won’t surely forget.
This hike is considered a beginner in difficulty best suited for kids 7 years and up
2450 River Road, Tahoe City.
Our tour takes place near Palisades Tahoe which can easily be accessed from the Bay Area, Sacramento, Reno, Truckee, North Lake Tahoe, and South Lake Tahoe.
We love bringing our dogs on hikes! If you have a well-behaved furry friend, we are happy to allow you to bring your dog along with prior notice.
Our family of 7 loved this experience. The view was absolutely stunning and we had a very pleasant time hiking through the forest learning about the trees and the history of the area. Highly recommend this!
