On the Hill: Hike the Rubicon Trail
Today’s activity: Hike the Rubicon Trail.
About the hike: Today Michelle takes us on a fairly beginner hike along the Rubicon Trail from DL Bliss State Park to Emerald Bay. The trail runs along the lake so the views are of course awesome, and it’s about 6.5 miles one way so it’s a great day hike.
Today’s weather: Late August at Lake Tahoe means get out early before the heat and likely thunderstorms hit, and today is no different. Just a 30 percent chance of those storms we’ve seen all week, but the winds will still be around, up to 20 mph, which will keep the smoke at bay but will also play havoc with your hair. Again, hit the trail in the morning for the best conditions.. — National Weather Service
