Day 1 - Arrival Day
We will depart from the San Francisco Bay Area at 12 Noon. It's about a 4-hour drive from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe, but driving times can vary with traffic and weather. We’ll check into our hotel, get settled, and then have a welcome briefing to cover the weekend’s adventures. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant in Truckee known for its California cuisine and locally-sourced foods.
Day 2 - Mountain Meadow Hike, Flower Identification
Mileage: 5 miles round-trip, Elevation Change: minimal. After breakfast at the hotel, we'll hike about 4-5 miles to mountain meadows, where we’ll find a mix of open fields, aspen groves and green forest. There should be a wonderful display of wildflowers, so be sure to bring your camera. We will enjoy our lunch on the trail, before heading back to our origination point. After hiking, we'll enjoy the rest of the long summer day on the deck or hot tub. At 7:30 PM we'll have a great dinner in town at a restaurant known for its delicious Italian fare.
Day 3 - Lake Tahoe Shoreline Hike
Mileage: 4 miles round trip; Elevation Change: 6630'-6230' (one-way). After breakfast, we'll explore the Lake Tahoe shoreline with a hike that takes us in and out of coves. The sandy beach turns to smooth, rock lined shoreline in parts, making great areas to walk rock to rock or gaze out across the blue lake. We’ll stop for pictures along the way and enjoy its many splendid views. We expect to be through with our hike about 2-3 PM. From there, we will drive back to San Francisco and return no later than 7 PM.
