Fall Color Hike on the Tahoe Rim Trail 8 am Highway 28 and Tunnel Creek Road

With the start of autumn upon us, we are all sensing the seasonal change is just around the corner. There's no better way to enjoy the wonders of fall than on a guided hike or program with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association during the months of September and October.

(7 – 9.7 Miles; difficult; destination hike)
Fall is the best time to hike the Flume Trail and enjoy fall colors above Lake Tahoe. This hike will climb up steep Tunnel Creek Road, but the views will be worth it as we follow the rolling terrain on the Flume Trail. We will turn around when the group has had its fill of beauty and then enjoy a downward journey back to our starting point. Don't forget your camera!
