  • This trail starting from the Rubicon Point on the South western shore of Lake Tahoe along the shores of the Lake to Emerald Bay, with its small island in the Lake. This trail is not flat (!), which he again declined or a ride, for example, at the camping site on Emerald Bay, organized. The path is not hard to commit and suitable for children or families, but relatively long: one direction takes 4 h until the end of roughly, but not necessarily go the way to end. It is advisable to go to the island in the Emerald Bay can be seen but at least so far (about 2-3 h). This Bank is also a campsite where the trail can be left perfectly. A break with strengthening and perhaps a dip in the Lake at this point is. To take plenty of water, a hat against the very strong sun and at least sneakers or similar footwear (and a camera for the very beautiful landscape) is on this hike. Directions/directions: Emerald Bay Rd on the South West side of the Lake Tahoe - the Lester Beach Rd drive (campsite with low entrance fee, but can directly on the Lakeshore or on the beach with bathing facilities be parked)-car park at the end of the Lester Beach Rd (entrance to the Rubicon trail; these parking spaces are very quickly, therefore, an approach is beneficial in the early morning).
