Celebrate Earth Day by exploring the lake
The arrival of spring in Lake Tahoe is celebrated on the ski slopes, along hiking and biking trails, Easter Sunday and on Earth Day.
Take those final weekend turns at Heavenly Mountain Resort, Sierra-at-Tahoe and Kirkwood and make plans to stay after Easter at The Ridge Tahoe, which offers deluxe hotel rooms, junior suites, one and two bedroom condominium suites.
Enjoy the week ahead and celebrate the great outdoors by playing golf, going on a hike or taking a mountain bike ride. Better yet, you can enjoy a the 2.2-mile section of a multi-use path at Stateline, minutes from The Ridge Tahoe.
Opened to the public in October 2013, the America’s Most Beautiful Bikeway, Stateline to Stateline phase 2 path runs between Elks Point and Round Hill and provides access to the high value recreation sites of Rabe Meadow, Nevada Beach as well as the communities of Stateline, lower Kingsbury, Elks Point and Round Hill. The Tahoe Transportation District-led project is part of an eventual 30-plus mile segment of the Nevada Stateline to Stateline Bikeway along the east shore.
Feel like exploring on two feet? Grab an energy bar, pack a water bottle or three and head out to a network of back-country trails that will lead you to a happy place. There are a number of trails close to The Ridge Tahoe and a few worth taking a few extra minutes of drive time.
When you get back from your hike, you can relax at South Lake Tahoe Library and learn about the 33-year history of the Tahoe Rim Trail. A slideshow and lecture will be presented beginning at 5:30 p.m.
