Guided Hikes
The Flume Trail begins above Incline on the north east shore of Lake Tahoe. It is an easy hike along a deserted water flume dating back to the late 1800’s. This hike offers some of the best panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. This trail is not on any map so it is very peaceful. Small streams cross the path and in spring and summer, wildflowers abound. In the fall the aspen foliage comes alive.

Erhman Mansion Walking Tour
Due to the uniqueness of this property, on this excursion one may feel that he or she has returned to the turn of the century. The grounds include a mile and three quarters of lake frontage with a number of sandy beaches and a unique untouched forest that marches right down to the water edge.

One of our favorite things on the property is the Erhman Mansion, known at the turn of the century as “the finest High Sierra summer home in Califonia”. It is now a fascinating example of the opulent tradition of Tahoe’s summer homes, serving as a house museum, complete with furnishings.

Squaw Valley Tram Ride
We start this hike with a spectacular ride up the tram at Squaw Valley, USA, home of the 1960 Winter Olympics. At the top of the tram (8,200 feet) you will find a lot to do from Bungee Jumping to swimming in the heated pool. If you would like to stay and enjoy the amenities please do, (there may be extra charges for the amenities).
