Hello! My extended family is going to be staying at a house in Tahoe this weekend very close to the Stagecoach/Boulder Heavenly lodges. We have 4 fairly little kids, but the youngest can go in hiking backpacks.
Are there any fairly easy/short hikes in that immediate area you would recommend?
It looks like the closest beach is Nevada beach. I've read in general that beaches in Tahoe this Summer are small b/c of the high water level. Is Nevada beach currently smaller than normal/therefore super packed on a Saturday? We'd probably get there earlyish (9:30?). Other close beaches you would recommend more?
We still have nap schedules to contend w/ so trying to avoid TOO long of a drive for either unless it's worth it. The Weekend Sherpa just sent something out about Spooner Lake which sounds intriguing for a hike. It's a 20+ minute drive though, trying to see if there's something closer.
