dogs on leash
off road driving
The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest's spectacular 6.3 million acres makes it the largest national forest in the lower 48 states. Located in Nevada and a small portion of eastern California, the Forest offers year-round recreation of all types.
great hike, beautiful views, easy to get to, and not that difficult if you're planning on a nice, fairly short day hike. I will say though (for dog owners) if you walk your dog off leash be wary, there are some owners who have pretty aggressive dogs off leash
Short easy Lower elevation hike. Today marks the first day of spring. That brings snow melt. 2017 snowfall was one for the record books. Which means lots of water run off. This trail actually has a river flowing next to it this year. Get up here before the snow melt springs run dry.
Pretty moderate trail. The beginning and the end have some climbs but a beautiful scenery the entire trail. We went later in the summer, but I've been told that Spring time is the best with all the spring flowers. The lake itself is more of a "mushy" lake so you might get a little muddy if you go in, but there's lots of camping spots around the lake if you walk a little. We went during a non burning month, but one of our neighbors felt like they didn't have to follow the rules so our camp was encompassed in smoke for the night. There's a beautiful view looking down to Tahoe.
Went hiking at Fletcher mid March. The weather was perfect and the river is there this time of year. Also still a bit of snow left on the ground the further you get into the hike. Also took my small dog who was able to hike the whole thing so definitely dog friendly.
Great views from South Camp peak.
