My Tahoe is snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
Fallen Leaf Lake is my personal non-groomed area to cross country ski and snowshoe. During the winter, the narrow road into the lake closes so you go for miles with amazing scenery. It has an easy access and is only a short drive away. If you are fit and can make it as far as the start of the lake (about 8 miles round trip) it is well worth it. Parking is limited at the entrance and make sure to bring water! At the intersection of Highway 50 & 89, go 3.1 miles towards Emerald Bay. Fallen Leaf Road is on your left.
