Mt. Tallac Professional Review and Guide
"Many regard Mt. Tallac as the quintessential Tahoe peak. The dark, metamorphic hulk looms over the south end of the lake in dominant fashion, casting a long shadow over the surrounding terrain. “Tallac” is a Native American word meaning “Great Mountain,” a particularly appropriate moniker for this stately peak. Not only is the mountain an imposing sight when viewed from various points around the basin, but the vista from the summit is equally stunning. Prospective peak baggers don’t need specialized mountaineering skills in order to reach the incredible view, as a maintained trail can be followed all the way to the top of the peak."
