When citizens of South Lake Tahoe have all the promise of the summer season or even just a weekend ahead of them, many take to the great outdoors. And how could you not? Mountains, lakeshore, forests, and rivers all await those looking for action-packed adventure as well as for those looking for a relaxing outdoor activity. From the Mount Tallac Village neighborhood, one can enjoy all of this and more!
A relatively newly developed area, the homes of Mount Tallac Village were constructed in the late '80s to early '00s, and give way to generous plots of land. Although there aren't sidewalks, the streets within the neighborhood are wide, ensuring that pedestrians enjoy a stroll around the block without having to encroach on others' grassy lawns.
A loop around the center of the community takes the guess-work out of planning a route for you and your dog to walk. Although it goes by three different street names, this oblong circle will take you around the neighborhood in 10-15 minutes.
Of course, all dogs are different in personalities and preferences. While some are happy trotting down the neighborhood lane, others are happiest when enduring a challenging hike or long game of fetch in the park. If that's the case, there's no need to worry: Mount Tallac Village is near a number of parks and public spaces where dogs are welcome.
El Dorado Beach is a mere 10-minute drive from Mount Tallac Village, making it the perfect spot for your pup's much-deserved outdoor excursion. While this public space offers gorgeous views of Lake Tahoe, it's important to be courteous and keep your dog leashed.
Van Sickle Bi-State Park is a partnership between both California and Nevada as the park straddles the border between both states. The Tahoe Rim Trail will take you and your canine companion through forested paths, with scenic overlooks along the way.
