You Have Seen the Movie, Now Read the Book!
“The author, Cheryl Strayed with no experience or training, driven only by blind will, hiked thousands of miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State and she did it alone.”
If hiking in the Tahoe area, it is likely at some point, you will find yourself on the same path that Cheryl Strayed hiked.
Part 2 of a 3 Part Series
Part 2 will spotlight two of our more adventurous hikes. Dare we say “Strenuous”?
Azure Lake including Cascade Falls – Challenge yourself on this 7-mile round trip hike to Azure Lake via the wooded trail to Cascade Falls. You’ll navigate through thick brush, over fallen trees, scramble over boulders and crawl up steep drainages as you trek to this off-the-beaten-path, pristine lake. And take a moment to dip your feet or whole body in the cool waters of Azure Lake before circling back.
Mt Tallac – is not for the faint of heart. Imagine a 10.4 mile loop with a daring 3,400 foot thigh-burning climb in the first four miles. The payoff for this hike is “one of the greatest 360 degree views in North America”!
This is the toughest hike at this year’s Summit and the word, Epic comes to mind when referring to this hike!
