Right off the HWY. HUGE parking lot with restrooms. Easy safe level walking path for all ages. Meander through meadows and wetlands beside a creek with views of salmon. Will do it again.

The path is about .5 miles and is paved. It’s a nice walk and the scenery is very enjoyable. We didn’t get to see the salmon, but the creek was lovely.

This is a nice and easy walk and a beautiful part of South Lake Tahoe. We've been coming here since our son was a baby. He's now 8 and he asks to come every time we visit (multiple times a year).

The Rainbow Trail at the Visitor Center is very serene and has some great views, particularly at sunset. Dog friendly

A typical US Forest Service visitor center. Easy to find right off the highway, plenty of parking, restrooms, free maps of the general area plus some for the local trails. Connects to the Tallac historic site. The 2 trail loops from the center are fairly...More
