Leaf Peepin’ at Lake Tahoe

What does autumn mean to you? Pumpkin spice, sweaters, and falling leaves? Come up to see the foliage at Lake Tahoe this year to get that fall fix. Here are a few of our favorite places to view those stunning fall colors:   Hope Valley Take the scenic route on your next trip to Tahoe. Located just south of the lake, Hope Valley is one of the more photographed areas for fall foliage at Lake Tahoe. Grab a bite at Sorenson’s and then wander through the trails, enjoying the copses of aspen showing off their golden color. Apple Hill Yet another place where it pays to take the scenic route. Apple Hill, located south of South Lake Tahoe, offers not only rolling hills dotted with groves of aspens, but also orchards, vineyards, and all of the fall activities you can imagine. Pick a bushel of apples to take with you for your Lake Tahoe getaway, or enjoy a hayride as a respite from the drive. Taylor Creek Visitor’s Center Throughout the early fall, watch salmon spawn at the Taylor Creek Visitor’s Center. The streams are absolutely full of the salmon on their way upstream, and if you’re lucky, you might even see […]
