In the four-season wonderland of North Lake Tahoe, autumn stands out for its unforgettable beauty. Changing leaves lend gorgeous color to the mountain landscape, and sunshine sparkles off crystal-clear waters. Temperatures are mild, and traffic is quieter than during the summer rush or buzzy winter ski weekends. It’s a peaceful time that promises engaging outdoor options for people and their pups.
Natural wonders take center stage here, whether you’re hiking an alpine trail, splashing in the lake, helping with a local beach clean-up, or gazing at the stars. And, like Team DogTrekker, North Lake Tahoe takes environmental stewardship seriously.
