About This Area

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Located 3 miles northwest of South Lake Tahoe, Taylor Creek provides four outstanding, easy nature trails for families with children. Walk the boardwalks over marshes with views of the nearby Mt. Tallac, listen to an educational talk by a ranger at the amphitheater, or look through the Stream Profile Window which provides an underwater window of Taylor Creek and its inhabitants.

Taylor Creek is beautiful and we were next to it most of the time. It is hard to follow trail on the east side but navigating close to the gps trail shown and found the way by staying close to creek. Crossing over the dam the trail is very easy to follow.

There are bathrooms, Water fountains, Trash disposal, and emergency support close by. As well as some of the trails are stroller and ADA accessible.

Hike it Baby Trail Guide is managed by the Family Trail Guide team. If a trail has been “abandoned” by the initial owner, it gets adopted by the team. Also, if there are no trails in the area, the Family Trail Guide team researches trails that are family friendly in the area to insure that hikes cover all areas where Hike it Baby hikes.
