What you'll do

The Lake Tahoe basin is breathtaking from nearly every viewpoint. In my 21 years of living here, I have explored many of the trails and shoreline around Tahoe. I would love to be your Tahoe local friend and lead you on a 2 mile hike to a beautiful overlook of Emerald Bay and the ENTIRE Lake Tahoe basin. This can be a sunrise or early morning hike or sunset hike, or the most spectacular….watching the sunset in one direction while watching the moonrise in the opposite direction up and over Heavenly Ski Resort. The hike begins with a relatively flat paved walk for about ½ mile. Then the trail turns to dirt with a slight incline for about ¼ mile until we get to the lookout point. Upon arrival, you will be encouraged to have a seat on the bench and share some snacks and laughs with the group while you take in the beauty that is Lake Tahoe. If you are lucky to be visiting Tahoe during the winter time, the hike will most likely be covered in packed snow. Snow boots or hiking boots will be needed.
My goal is to make sure that you have an unforgettable visit to Lake Tahoe. I will strive to keep our impact to the area minimal with Leave No Trace principles, choosing non-peak hiking times, and social distancing practices if need be. I am happy to try and accommodate mobility challenged/differently abled folks on the hike. Contact me for details on accessible trail selections.

We had an amazing time hiking with Jen! She brought us to the best locations for some breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe! She was our own personal photographer & airdropped all the photos to my phone at the end of the trip. We loved the hot chocolate & snacks Jen brought for us to have a little picnic halfway through the hike. And the sledding experience was EPIC! I can’t say enough great things about Jen.

Jen was great. I love hiking with a local because I learn more about the history of the area. It was a beautiful adventure.

We couldn't have asked for more. Jen was on time, friendly, professional, kniwlegeable and thoughtful (with her hot chocolate, snack, and shoe covers). Feel very lucky we found her.

The hike with Jen was a great experience! We came to SLT towards the end of March so the trail we hiked was still covered in snow. My partner and I are new to the outdoors experience and we appreciate that Jen was very mindful and didn't mind us taking our time. The viewpoints were spectacular and she gave little tidbits of facts along the way. Highly recommend.

I was instruction impaired while figuring out where the meeting place was going to be. My GPS was taking me to another area

Jen was super accommodating and her hospitality was amazing! She took us on a wonderful hike getting superb views of the lake and an exhilarating sled ride. She's really knowledgeable about the area and it's rich history. She even brought snacks and hot cocoa! I am differently abled with some mobility issues and she was so patient with me. We're so grateful for having had this experience; she made hubby's birthday extra special. Thank you, Jen!!!
