Wild Winter Tree Hunt with the Sugar Pine Foundation
Echo Lake Sno-Park
Posted By: Crew Stover
This National Winter Trails Day, The Tahoe Rim Trail Association and the Sugar Pine Foundation will be co-hosting an afternoon snowshoe trek to Echo Lake. This will be a leisurely snowshoe from the Echo Lake Sno-Park (Johnson Pass Rd) to Lower Echo Lake (however, it could be more challenging if snow levels are deep). Along the way, our experts and friends at the Sugar Pine Foundation will reveal the mysterious world of trees. We will lunch at the old lodge, so please remember to bring lunch and snacks. Our destination provides great photo opportunities of Lower Echo Lake and the surrounding mountains of glacial moraine carved out millennia ago.
What to Expect
This hike is a moderate, 4 mile round trip hike. TRTA hikes are group hikes, and we do our best to keep the group together. All TRTA guides are volunteers who dedicate a great deal of their time throughout the year sharing their passion for the trail and the outdoors. They are well-trained and experienced so please respect their decisions they make on the trail. Please bring plenty of food and water
