Taylor Creek Visitor Center Nature Trails

South Lake Tahoe, California

Taylor Creek Visitor Center Nature Trails Professional Review and Guide

"Backpackers will know the Taylor Creek Visitor Center as the place on the east side of Desolation Wilderness to acquire a wilderness permit.

More casual hikers and tourists flock to the area to stroll along one of the several gently graded nature trails that travel through a variety of habitats and past a number of diverse points of interest. The area is a hub of activity for young and old alike throughout the summer and again in the fall, when the Kokanee salmon spawn in Taylor Creek."

This site offers several leisurely hikes for families. The trails are level, shady, and offer nice viewing of local wildlife and vegetation. This is a great place for kids! Our kids, 8, 6, and 2 years old all enjoyed the hikes. Signs along the way educate kids (and adults) about the ecology of Lake Tahoe and Taylor Creek.
