$5 Reservation fee and Sno-Park permit requried.
The Sugar Pine Foundation (SPF) and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) have teamed up for an afternoon snowshoe trek to Echo Lake. This trek 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). This will be a moderate, approximately 4 mile roundtrip trek. Along the way, our experts and friends at the Sugar Pine Foundation will reveal the mysterious world of trees and touch on the effects of the Caldor Fire. We will have 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.
Your $5 reservation fee is non-refundable. Each vehicle must arrive with a Sno-Park parking permit to park at the meeting location. You can purchase a $15-day permit or $40 season permit online or at several Sno-Park permit vendors.
