What to bring:
Please bring a lot of water, headlamp, sunscreen, snacks/lunch & warm water proof clothing as well as extra layers as this is at 8200 feet and will be windy and cold in November. This is a steep hike that will take us to “The Bench” that overlooks Lake Tahoe. We will be hiking at the moderate pace since daylight is shorter this time of year. Please don’t hesitate to ask any hiking related questions!
