Carmen Carr, your real estate consultant for North Lake Tahoe, shares her passion with the community by providing monthly guided hikes, and snowshoe trips, through our beautiful backyard of endless trail systems.
Directions: From Interstate 80, take the Big Bend exit (1-1/2 miles east of Cisco Grove and 6 miles west of the Soda Springs exit). From the exit ramp, follow old Highway 40 for 0.9 mile to the plowed parking area on the north side of the road. A Forest Service block building with a pit toilet is at the west end of the parking area. (Rainbow lodge is a quarter mile east of the trailhead)
Each of the three lakes possesses its own unique charm. The open terrain near the beginning of the trip & around the lakes periodically provides fine views of the surrounding countryside.
Distance: about 6-8 mi. round trip, some clamoring and rock stepping terrain can be strenuous crossing depending on your ability
