This is a fun day trip if you are staying on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The drive from Tahoe City is only about thirty minutes and there are several places to stop along the way. Some of my favorite stops are: Sugar Pine State Park, Meeks Bay Resort and Emerald Bay where you can hike down to the famous Vikingsholm. Read the rest of this entry »

There are two well maintained trails from Spooner Lake that lead to Marlette Lake. One of the trails is for mountain bikes and the other is reserved for hiking. Today Toni, my wife, and I choose the bike trail. We parked at the old Ponderosa Ranch where we caught a shuttle that took us and our bikes to the Spooner Lake parking lot.

Part 7 of 10 Lakes Near Tahoe…Ella Dry Lake

Paul Smith said on September 18th, 2010 filed under: ACTIVITIES, LOCAL AREA PHOTOS, PLACES TO SEE

Ella Dry Lake, Waddle Ranch Preserve, Martis Valley

On Tuesday,  Toni and I drove to Martis Valley took a bike ride to Walden Ranch to see Ella Dry Lake. We parked near the Martis Dam which is just a few minutes from Highway 267. We rode over the top of the dam on a paved road. At the end of the road there is a single track that leads up to the lake. There are three or four directional signs along the way.  The trail is great for either hiking or biking though definitely more fun on a bike.
