1.  Mount Tallac (9.5 mi round trip) – South Lake Tahoe

The hike to the top of Mount Tallac near Emerald Bay is one of the more difficult hikes in the area, and, from the amount of photos and commentaries, also one of the most rewarding.  From the top of this 9.5 mile round trip hike you can see Emerald Bay, Cascade Lake, Fallen Leaf Lake, Desolation Wilderness and the entire South Shore of Lake Tahoe. The elevation gain is 3,500 feet, so be prepared for some terrain change from forest and alpine lakes at the bottom to scree and boulders at the top.  Bring plenty of water; there are not usually any sources to draw from.
