Many folks think of two seasons when they think of Lake Tahoe: winter and summer. However, we are here to tell you that fall is a season that shines up here. Sometimes referred to as Tahoe’s best-kept secret, autumn is a gorgeous time to visit. We love fall in Lake Tahoe. There are fewer crowds, so you can get to your destination and find parking quickly. Post up on that beach and have it all to yourself. Go on a peaceful hike and enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with having the woods all to yourself.
Speaking of hiking, autumn is the perfect time of year to do that hike you’ve been wanting to do. Cooler temperatures and sunny days mean ideal trekking weather. The trails are less busy, and the views are resplendent. The aspens in the Tahoe basin change colors, giving you glimpses of bright foliage along the way.
And just because it’s fall doesn’t mean that you have to stay out of the water! This time of year is great for paddleboarding, kayaking, and boating. Some days are warm enough to jump into the cool Lake Tahoe blue! The lake is glassy in the morning, great for a calm and meditative paddle. The weather is gorgeous for boating, with coves and sunsets that will be sure to impress. The Franciscan Lakeside Lodge offers $25/day buoy rentals for lodging guests through September, which is convenient for all you water sport enthusiasts out there.
