Page Meadow, part of the Tahoe National Forest, is an easy and beautiful hiking area on the west shore of Lake Tahoe.

It is great for snowshoe beginners in the winter and wildflower enthusiasts in the spring and summer. It's also a great place for dogs and views, offering wide-open panoramas of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra crest. Numerous trails—14 miles of them, by some counts—spider-web throughout.

There are several ways in:

• From Highway 89, two miles south of Tahoe City, turn right on Pineland Drive. Turn right on Forest Service Road 15N60 or 16N48 to get to the area.

Another option:

• From Highway 89 just north of Sunnyside, turn left on Pine Street and veer right on Tahoe Park Heights Drive. Continue up the steep hill ) and turn right on Big Pine Drive. Make your first left on Silvertip Drive. Go to the end of the paved road and park. The unmarked trail starts at the end of Silvertip and will take you and your dog to the meadows.

Scenery is what it’s all about at North Lake Tahoe, and there are so many ways to fill your eyes that we can mention only a few (more hikes here). If a casual stroll will satisfy, check out the Tahoe City Lakeside Trail, a paved, multi-use path joining two segments of the 19-mile bike path hugging the Truckee River all the way to Palisades Tahoe, where you'll find a parking area with restrooms. Also on the easy side is Page Meadow (sometimes spelled “Paige”), where you’ll encounter beautiful mid-summer wildflower displays along with glorious views of the lake and the snow-dappled Sierra crest. more »
