Nearby Tahoe South Hiking Trails

May 16, 2014

Summer hiking is a favorite activity of Tahoe locals and visitors.  Two areas with plenty to explore are the Lam Wahtah Trail and the Van Sickle State Park, both in Stateline, Nevada.  The close proximity to Lakeside Inn and Casino make these convenient for our visitors.

The Lam Wahtah Trail to Nevada Beach starts at the corner of Highway 50 and Kahle Drive in Stateline, Nevada.  Picnics, swimming and watching spectacular sunsets are popular activities at Nevada Beach.  Paved and dirt trails meander through meadows and forests.  Hikers and bikers share the trails.  Swimming in Lake Tahoe is a very refreshing experience.

Breathtaking lake views are accessible while hiking at Van Sickle State Park.   This bi-state park, partly in Nevada and partly in California is located on the mountain directly behind the casino core in Stateline, Nevada.  A portion of the Tahoe Rim Trail is located within the park.  You can feel yourself relax and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the forest within just a few steps of the trailhead.

Remember common sense while hiking.  The sun is strong and the air is dry.  Bring plenty of sunscreen and drinking water.  Wear sturdy shoes and pack your camera. 

Wildlife can be seen in either area.  Many birds and squirrels call the forests and meadows home.  Coyotes, bears and other large mammals are occasionally seen.
