Family Fun Hikes
“Where’s a good place to go hiking?” was the most common question I was asked while working at a backpacking store in South Lake Tahoe. This isn’t surprising, but it could be a challenge to answer when the person asking was standing beside their eight year old son and 80 year old mother. For this reason, I’ve compiled a series of short, family fun hikes to accommodate hikers of all ages. Generally, these short hikes will be five miles or less and will feature 500′ or less of elevation gain. When you’re limited in how far you can hike or how high you can climb or just plain short on time, choose a Family Fun Hike!

Day Hikes
These day hikes are between 5-12 miles long. In my experience, the average hiker doesn’t plan to hike more than a dozen miles in one day.

Multi-day Hikes
The multi-day hikes featured on TahoeTrailGuide.com will generally be longer than 12 miles. I realize that many people, particularly those who are athletically prepared or are used to thru-hikes, can and will cover much more ground in a day. However, for most average hikers and backpackers, 12 miles is considered more than enough for a single day’s worth of hike, so anything longer than that will be categorized on this site as multi-day.
