Summer has passed on by and fall is now in full swing. Being able to breathe in the crisp cool air while crunching the beautiful fall-colored leaves on our walks is exactly what we’ve been waiting for. Even though Lake Tahoe has experienced some catastrophic events these past few months, we’re keeping our heads high and looking up to what’s to come. Read on to find out how you can make the most out of your Lake Tahoe fall this year!

Go Leaf Peeping

Other than the salmon, Lake Tahoe also does not disappoint with its fall foliage. You’ll see more fall colors than ever before when you choose to take a hike at Hope Valley, Marlette Lake, and Maggie’s Peaks. If you’re not into hiking that much, then consider taking in the views while mountain biking! Trails like The Flume Trail and The Bench are great for both rides and views. Don’t own mountain bikes? No problem! Mountain Sports has all the mountain biking equipment that you will need to enjoy a ride on the Lake Tahoe terrain.

Giddy Up

If you’re seeking out a little more of an exciting adventure this fall, then maybe horseback riding is the option for you! Camp Richardson Corral is the perfect place for you to experience a horseback ride through the National Forest and mountain meadows. At this popular South Lake Tahoe destination, you’ll be able to choose from trail rides, pony rides, and even extended trail rides along with a few other options, depending on guidelines at that time. Push yourself out of your comfort zone and hop on a horse to experience the amazing colors of fall in Lake Tahoe!

Get Your Cruise On

Want to view Lake Tahoe’s amazing fall colors from the water? How about a cruise? The Tahoe Paradise and M.S. Dixie II both offer great rides that tour the Emerald Bay where you’ll get to see Tahoe’s colors like never before. These year-round cruises offer both day and night-time tours and also accommodate group events. We recommend packing your favorite camera along so you have momentos of the stunning fall scenery that you’ll get to see up-close.

Eat Well

The days may be getting shorter, but the views here at Camp Richardson are as stunning as ever. Enjoy them from The Beacon Bar & Grill, so close to the water you can almost dip your toes in! Cozy up by the fire on the deck with a cocktail and apps, or dine indoors with spectacular views!

Get Cozy

Nothing beats a cozy blanket, a warm cup of tea, and the views around Camp Richardson! Book one of our cozy winterized cabins and make the most of your fall Lake Tahoe trip! Our year-round cabin rentals have gas fireplaces, forced-air heat, full kitchens, and much more so you can hunker down comfortably during the cool days (and nights!) of fall.
