Come and join Northstar’s Hiking Guides to explore the breathtaking flora, fauna and vistas of the Sierra Nevadas. Our local guiding experts will take you on a journey through the pioneering history of Tahoe, local Washoe Tribe history as well as the geological marvels that created our beautiful mountains and lakes. Along the way you will come across information vista points that describe the Northstar Habitat Management Plan.  Our guides will assess the group and help select a route, based on duration, distance and athleticism.
