Fall at Lake Tahoe peaks in October with bold colors, Oktoberfests, and fall activities

Fall colors, food festivals, and wildlife are all on display in South Lake Tahoe in October. Families can see Tahoe’s “circle of life” up close during the Fall Fish Fest. Lake Tahoe’s landlocked Kokanee salmon pass through the Taylor Creek Visitor Center on their way to spawn in the top parts of Taylor Creek. Black bears are usually on hand to give the salmon a helping paw or munch on their journey. Enjoy and participate in this free family event which has become one of the most fascinating educational and wildlife viewing events in Northern California. The festival encourages participation by children and their parents in a wide variety of educational and entertaining activities.

What’s Ahead in South Lake Tahoe:

The Valhalla Art, Music and Theatre Festival’s 2015 Closing Night will feature James Garner’s Tribute to Johnny Cash, Wednesday, Aug. 26, 7:30 p.m. Celebrating the life and music of the legendary ‘Man in Black,’ Garner and his band faithfully recreate Cash’s biggest hits and present historical accounts and personal anecdotes in this not-to-be-missed musical event.

A long-held Labor Day weekend tradition is the Great Lake Tahoe Sternwheeler Race on Saturday, Sept. 5.

Guests can join the party and excitement aboard either boat including Tahoe’s only Paddlewheel Brunch Buffet.

Get some exercise Sunday, Sept. 6 at the Heavenly Resort Mountain Run. This 5.8 mile trek begins at California Base Lodge and climbs to the top of Lake Tahoe’s largest four-season resort. The run finishes at the Tamarack Lodge at an awe-inspiring 9,150-feet. Runners can enjoy a scenic ride down the Heavenly Gondola back to the base or descend on their own.

What would Labor Day weekend at Lake Tahoe be without fireworks? The annual Labor Day Lake Tahoe Fireworks Extravaganza pyrotechnic celebration explodes in all the colors of summer and fall Sept. 6 at South Shore Lake Tahoe. The show begins at 8:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, skiers and riders will have the chance to save big bucks on gear and equipment for next season, as Heavenly Mountain Resort hosts the 29th Annual Heavenly Sports Tent Sale at the California Main Lodge, Sept. 5-7.

Right next door to the resort, The Shops at Heavenly Village will be the place to find classic cars, trucks and motorcycles beginning Friday, Sept. 4 through the holiday weekend.

You can go for a hike in beautiful Lake Tahoe and see where our winged friends are flying during the Fall Bird Migration with Tahoe Institute for Natural Science on Sunday, Sept. 13, 8:30 – 11:30 am. TINS, Lahontan Audubon Society and Tahoe Rim Trail Association are co-sponsoring this easy stroll to search for migrant birds heading south for the winter.

Lake Tahoe: The Adventure Begins When You Step Outside


Sandy beaches, high mountain adventure, memories (and selfies) make up our employee summer experience at Lake Tahoe. Why keep our favorite hot spots a secret? Here’s how Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel staff spend their time away from work.


Heavenly gondola and zip rides: What better place for you to begin your sightseeing adventure than right outside our back door with a Gondola ride at Heavenly Mountain Resort. Summer operations continue daily with Gondola rides and the debut of the resort’s adventure course — a new four line Hot Shot Zip Line, as well the Discovery Forest Ropes Course and Boulder Cove Ropes Course, plus The Blue Streak Zip Line, Black Bear Ropes Course and summer tubing. Don’t forget your camera.

The Heavenly Flyer zip line at Heavenly Mountain Resort, South Lake Tahoe, CA.

The Heavenly Flyer zip line at Heavenly Mountain Resort, South Lake Tahoe, CA.

Biking: Whether you like cruising along wide paths with other cyclists or soaring down the side of a mountain on a single-track, Tahoe South is crossed with an extensive network of on and off road bicycle trails. You can view the Lake Tahoe Bike Trail Map before arriving to better plan your adventure and check out more staff favorites on the My Tahoe mountain biking page.


Hit the beach: In Lake Tahoe there’s no shortage of hidden coves and large public beaches nearby. Soak in the rays as you take in the panoramic views of the towering mountain peaks that surround the lake. Don’t forget the sunscreen and ice cold beverages to cool off or let us pack a picnic lunch for your day. Resort guests also receive a free parking pass to Round Hill Pines beach during their stay — one of our favorites.


Water adventure: Find that tranquil peace while paddling a kayak, discover your balance on a stand up paddleboard or skim the waves behind a ski boat or Jet Ski. There are several places around South Shore Lake Tahoe to find your ideal water craft for summer fun.


Catch a big fish: Lake Tahoe has its share of sizable fish including the mackinaw lake trout that can be found shore side or by charter boat. These deep lake fish can weigh more than 30 pounds and are quite a thrill to catch. There are a number of charter outfits around South Lake Tahoe that offer mackinaw fishing packages. Guides are known for taking their passengers out to the sweetest spots, where guests can catch the big ones. If fly fishing is your game go to the My Tahoe fly fishing page for some ideas.


Hiking: Whether you prefer to traverse with walking stick, power hike with ski poles or just enjoy some time in the great outdoors, there’s ample places to hike around South Shore. Let your feet do the driving through an extensive network of backcountry trails. Our favorites include:


  • Van Sickle Bi-State Park This hiking trail straddles the Nevada and California state line and is minutes from Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel for hiking with some great sightseeing views.
  • The Tahoe Rim Trail: This is an extension of the 165-mile long-distance hiking trail which forms a loop around Lake Tahoe. The trail ranges in elevation from 6,240 feet at the outlet of Lake Tahoe to 10,338 feet at Relay Peak in Nevada. About 50 miles of trail above the lake’s west shore are also part of the much longer Pacific Crest Trail. Bring your camera, download some maps, and prepare to spend the day taking in Tahoe’s hidden gems.
  • Echo Lakes: Many different hikes can be taken from this trailhead. For a short walk, hike to the far end of Upper Echo Lake. Many longer hike options are located farther down the trail. For a nominal fee, a boat taxi operated in the summer by Echo Lakes Resort and cuts three miles off your trip. Day hikers can pick up permits at the self-serve area at the trailhead.
  • Fallen Leaf Lake: Hiking to Fallen Leaf Lake is best found just past the Fallen Leaf Campground. There are a number of well-maintained trails which all lead to the lake’s north shore with awesome views of Mt. Tallac. Being almost flat and from 3/4 to 2 miles round trip, it is a perfect hike for small children or older adults. The trail is wide and easily navigated with virtually no chance of getting lost. After reaching Fallen Leaf Lake, it is possible to extend the hike by taking a trail that leads first to the dam and then along a scenic stretch of Taylor Creek.
  • Angora Lakes: An easy half-mile hike leads to two small lakes. Picturesque Upper Angora Lake is framed by cliffs and due to its shallowness it makes for a great swimming spot. Stop at the Angora Lookout on the drive up for a 360 degree view of the basin.
  • Tallac: If you’re ready for a strenuous challenge, Mt. Tallac provides spectacular views of Fallen Leaf Lake, Lake Tahoe, and Desolation Wilderness. A wilderness permit is required. Weather conditions can change rapidly in the Sierra; bring a jacket, carry lots of water and allow plenty of time for your trip. Day hikers, pick up your permit at the self-serve area at the trailhead.

Feel free to stop on in for lunch or dinner, or call for reservations: 530.543.2140.

Around the Lake

Kayaking: Enjoy a day out on the lake kayaking in peace! The boats, crowds, and wind that usually accompany the summer season are still weeks away. Spring is one of the best times to enjoy calm waters, deserted beaches, and feel like you have the lake to yourself! Our Bellman Murray’s favorite spots are Baldwin Beach and Sand Harbor. Visit our MyTahoe Kayaking page to read more about Murray’s recommendations.
