Subalpine meadow teeming with flowers and wildlife... ideal for a quick, flat hike with the entire family The paths that meander around Tahoe Meadows are covered with footprints and signs of mammals, the air is filled with songbirds and raptors, and the ground is alive with masses of wildflowers and trees. This hike has no particular destination and it's not going to get you anywhere other than familiar with nature. A natural history field guide would be a welcome companion on this walk because you will have a chance to use it often.
I had so much fun exploring the Tahoe Meadows area on a gorgeous December afternoon. And I could not have picked a better location to go snowshoeing for my first time. After a beautiful trek through the woods, we ended up with an amazing view of Lake Tahoe from Chickadee Ridge. We also stopped to feed the chickadees along the way...what a memorable experience!
First of hike for me for the Spring 2014 season. Lot's of snow still on the ground, it was a little hard in terms of route finding.
