This is easy lakeshore hike of about 2.2 miles (out and back) is a great way to kill a little time if you're staying in the South Lake Tahoe/Stateline area and the dogs are getting restless. It leaves from the parking lot at Kahle Lane and Highway 50, just north of the Lakeside Inn and Casino, and ends at a dog-friendly stretch of Nevada Beach signed "boat-in picnic area."
The trail passes through an area of meadows once slated for casino development but saved by the Nature Conservancy, which donated the tract to the U.S. Forest Service. Its name is derived from a Washoe Indian phrase meaning permanent mortar by the stream. The area was used as a campsite for more than 1,000 years. Interpretive signs alongside the trail provide insights into the natural and human history of the area.
Great place for a sunset!
