About This Trail

[Total: 2    Average: 3.5/5]

We host a reoccurring weekly toddler led hikes here in the warmer months. There’s a big parking lot, restrooms, and picnic tables. Best to go during a weekday. We start at the picnic tables for snack under the pines, then toddler wander or carrier walk or terrain stroller too. There are boulders to climb, a meadow with a bench to stop and rest which is also a good turn around point or you can continue on the trail cross a stream and it takes you on a longer trail network North of Zephyr Cove I’m unsure how far it goes probably a couple miles. After our trail walk we go splash in the lake, dig in sand, watch the birds and boats.

Trail highlights

Beach, Creek / River, Lake, Natural Play Area, Picnic Area, Shaded Hike, and Wildlife Viewing

Zephyr Cove Resort is right on the water at Lake Tahoe, gorgeous views. The North side of the beach is dog friendly. There is a 10$ parking fee. There are pine trees providing shade and picnic tables right near the bathrooms and parking lot. The gentle slope transitions the forest and beach and is a great natural play area for kids to explore. If you follow the trail from the parking lot North it takes you across a small creek over a footbridge into a larger network of trails a bit farther from the lakeshore.
