This wander through the woods, through a state park with
no hoopla—in fact, no facilities of any kind other than trails
and markers—leads to a secluded meadow frequented by deer, ducks, and not a whole lot of humans. Burton Creek State Park, home to Antone Meadows and the preserve that protects it, is the shy sibling of the flashier state parks around Lake Tahoe.
This is the park where you can come for quiet, where you can retreat for a long, peaceful walk in the woods. That doesn’t mean you’ll be entirely alone, however. The dirt roads that crisscross the pine and fir forest that sprawls west of the lakeshore are popular with mountain bikers, who may ride singly or in packs but are, without fail (at least thus far), friendly and easy to share the trails with.
