Cathedral Lake

Camp Richardson, California

Cathedral Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Tallac, at more than 9,700 feet in elevation, dominates nearly every South Lake Tahoe vista. It’s also a powerful presence on the hike to Cathedral Lake, a peaceful tarn cupped among jumbled rock and thick-trunked evergreens that sits at the base of one of the peak’s talus fields."
