Why You Need To Plan a Trip To Yosemite in Winter

Top 10 Hikes with Kids in North Lake Tahoe

If you have been following me for a while, you know we love to hike as a family; but sometimes it can be really hard to find family appropriate hikes.  It needs to be just the right length and difficulty.  Our current criteria are: 5 miles or under, almost any difficulty.  We can do any difficulty, but if there is too much vertical gain, then we need to shave some of the mileage off to make it more doable with minimal amount of complaining.  So under 5 miles, shouldn’t be that hard, right?  Wrong.  Tahoe is a beautiful place to hike, but it is difficult to find good kid friendly hikes.  A lot of the lists we find have hikes that don’t give you very good views, aren’t that interesting, or are all in South Lake. Here is our top 10 list of hikes in North Lake Tahoe with (young) kids. If you have any additional suggestions, please add them in the comments section, we are always looking for new ones.
