Spy on a huge bald eagle’s nest, glide over a pristine beach, admire staggering views of Mount Tallac, and capture the shiny blue essence of Emerald Bay on this remote ramble. You’ll also get close enough to Lake Tahoe to skip a stone over it and close enough to Emerald Bay’s Fannette Island to heave a rock toward it. A prime goal of this route is to locate the gray, twiggy eagle’s nest, which is frequently visited by ospreys. It stands high over Emerald Bay, atop a long dead Jeffrey pine easily seen from aptly named and readily accessible Eagle Point.
