Exploring Tahoe on the water is your best view of the lake

Whether you prefer finding that tranquil peace while paddling a kayak in a secret cove or if you enjoy skimming the waves behind a boat or Jet ski, there are several marinas around Tahoe South to help you find your ideal water craft for adventure.

Vacations at The Ridge Tahoe wouldn’t be complete without a trip on the big blue where the mountains set the perfect backdrop every direction as does the 70-plus feet of deep cobalt blue you’ll see aboard your watercraft.

Choose your vessel and get out on the lake. It's an experience you don't want to miss.

Choose your vessel and get out on the lake. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss.

If you’re bringing your own boat, all watercraft are required to be inspected prior to launching. This is to protect the lake’s waters from aquatic invasive species. There are four convenient roadside stations for inspections. The certified staff is friendly and efficient.

While vacationing you can rent a power boat at any number of marinas. Boats come equipped with life jackets and Coast Guard approved safety equipment. Popular places to scope out are Emerald Bay and the shorelines from South Lake Tahoe to Cave Rock.

Looking for some non-motorized adventure? You can launch a canoe or kayak practically anywhere. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the lake on a kayak, where you can paddle yourself out a few hundred yards from shore, soak in the sun and ease along the smooth, glassy water.

Prefer to let someone else do the driving? You can always charter a sailboat or yacht such as the Woodwind II, the Safari Rose, the Tahoe or the Tahoe Bleu Wave. These cruises are great for private receptions, dinner parties and general sightseeing adventures.

Tahoe paddlewheelers are a unique ways to cruise the lake. Take in lunch or a sunset dinner cruise and enjoy the views. The Ridge Tahoe offers discounted tickets for sightseeing and dinner tours aboard the Tahoe Queen and M.S. Dixie II. Tickets can be bought at the Ridge Tahoe Market Place.

The Ridge Tahoe is surrounded by dozens of bike trails

Whether you like to cruise along wide paths with other cyclists or soar down the side of a mountain on a single-track, Tahoe South is crossed with an extensive network of on and off road bicycle trails. You can also check with the staff of The Ridge Tahoe regarding bike rentals and organized rides during your stay.

For starters, you can download the Lake Tahoe Bike Trail Map. Produced by the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition, this easy to use trail map is an excellent way to plan your Tahoe cycling adventure.

Maps are also available at bike shops and Visitors Centers throughout the Tahoe region.

On the Nevada side you’ll want to check out the 2.2-mile shared-use bike path that connects Elks Point and Round Hill Pines and provides access to Rabe Meadow, Nevada Beach and Round Hill Pines Resort. The trail is part of a 30-plus mile plan called America’s Most Beautiful Bikeway that will eventually circumnavigate the Lake.

Van Sickle Bi-State Park: Located minutes from the The Ridge Tahoe, the park, which straddles the Nevada and California state line, offers nearby biking with great views. The lower level climb is easy as it winds through some boulder outcroppings before building and becoming steeper, ideal for a strenuous leg of your workout. You will see views of Mt. Tallac, the South Lake Tahoe casinos, Edgewood Tahoe golf course on up to the Tahoe’s north shore in the distance. If you are ready for a longer ride then continue beyond the waterfall and head up to The Tahoe Rim Trail.

On the California side you’ll want to check out the South Lake Tahoe Bike Path. The mostly paved path starts where Highway 50 first touches Lake Tahoe at El Dorado Beach and connects to other bike trails and lanes throughout the city of South Lake Tahoe and into Nevada.

There are 7.16 miles of class one bike trails within the City of South Lake Tahoe, linking the state line area with the west side of town. From there you can connect with the bike trail that is adjacent to Highway 89 that leads to Camp Richardson.

Off-road favorites are:

Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride/Saxon Creek: This iconic trail is a Tahoe classic. It gives advanced riders a satisfyingly long, plunging descent through a towering forest with rocky, challenging terrain on the upper sections giving way to smooth, fast, banked turns on the lower sections.  Named for its exciting descent on the Saxon Creek Trail, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride plunges downhill at a drop of nearly 1,500 feet in less than six miles. The advanced ride begins at Big Meadow Trailhead, heading north on the Tahoe Rim Trail. The descent is sometimes steep and technical and there are some corners that are nicely banked for high-speed turning. Bring your longer-travel bike.  Total Distance: From Big Meadow 10 miles.

Tahoe Rim Trail: There are many options on this 165 mile long loop trail that circles the ridge lines above Lake Tahoe. Mountain bikes are only allowed on about half of the overall length, because it shares segments with the Pacific Crest Trail and also goes through Wilderness Areas.  Many of the popular mountain biking segments are listed on the TAMBA website.

The Flume Trail: This is another Tahoe classic with breathtaking views over Lake Tahoe’s Eastern Shore.  See for yourself why this trail is so frequently photographed for magazines. Named for the wooden flume which transported water and logs to Virginia City, Nevada during the Comstock silver mining boom of the mid-1800s, the Flume Trail has been labeled one of Western America’s Top 10  routes. The trail begins at Spooner Lake, ascends five miles to Marlette Lake, where the actual Flume Trail begins. A 4-1/2 mile long narrow single-track departs from the west end of the lake, following the ridge to the north nearly 2,000 feet above Lake Tahoe. Total Trail Distance: 22 miles.

  7. Catch a fish: With visibility to 75 feet below its surface, Lake Tahoe is home to the monster Mackinaw, which can run anywhere from 10 to 30 pounds. There are plenty of outfitters who will take you out early in the morning for big catches, or you can charter a boat and spend the whole day fishing Tahoe’s secret coves.
  8. Go for a bike ride: There are dozens of on and off-road bike trails, fit for novices and experts. Tahoe South has been designated as a Bike Friendly Community, so bike paths for the social spin are plentiful as are shops staffed by experts that rent and sell quality bikes.
