Washoe Meadows Trail is a 5.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near South Lake Tahoe, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
This is accessible all year. Bike, hike, walk in spring, summer, or fall. Snowshoe or cross country ski in winter. Lots of bird life; coyote and bear sightings as well. This trail in Washoe Meadows State Park is treasure right in our backyards and it is threatened by a golf course expansion project.
This hike is a secret little treasure during late fall or spring when all other trails are hard to explore. This trail is in a state park that happens to be free! Yes , that's right a free state park. A nice meadow with the upper truckee river meandering through it. Bears tend to leasurly stroll through this area. Great place for dogs to run.
