Mount Tallac is just a hair shy of 10 miles round trip, but both the difficulty and terrain make it seem much longer. With some of the best views in the Tahoe area, Mount Tallac is a must for any peak-bagger.
Trailhead Directions: From South Lake Tahoe take CA-89 toward Emerald Bay, turn left on the Camp Shelly/Tallac City Camps turn-off. Parking lot located at the end of the road.
As with any hikes in the Tahoe area, be sure to bring plenty of water, food, and emergency supplies. Be sure to fill out any appropriate wilderness permits, too.
