Experience Fall in South Lake Tahoe
Get in Touch with Nature at Taylor Creek this Fall
Do you know that Lake Tahoe has salmon in it? Don’t believe me? Check out the salmon spawning at Taylor Creek, just outside of South Lake Tahoe. A place where you can go connect with nature, enjoy the fall leaves, check out wildlife and learn about how the salmon got into the lake. Taylor Creek offers a visitor center, boardwalk, stream profile chamber where you can see the salmon and trout, and the occasional bears coming to feed on the fish. Mid-October is the best time for a visit to Taylor Creek.
Hike around Fallen Leaf Lake
Right outside of Taylor Creek is the exit that will take you to Fallen Leaf Lake. You can bike or hike around Fallen Leaf Lake and take in the views of Mt Tallac. The Fall colors and the blue lake create a contrast perfect for photos. You can bring a picnic to enjoy on the lake shores. There isn’t anything open at Fallen Leaf Lake in Fall so prepare ahead of time. Driving there is on a very narrow road so be sure take your time.
