Tahoe City Lakeside Trail is a mile-long “missing link” between two legs of the North Shore’s 19-mile bike path around the river in Tahoe City.
The short waterfront promenade features several overlooks, plazas and picnic areas. Leashed dogs are allowed on the trail, but not in the lake.
The Lakeside trail allows you to hike all the way from Tahoe City to Squaw Valley on a paved trail. A trailhead with parking, restrooms and a children’s playground is located at Squaw. Parking is free.
