Scenic Hiking

Nature hikes at Northstar can be as advanced or as leisurely as you make them. Brush shoulders with old growth red fir and white pines or enjoy beautiful views of Lake Tahoe. Leashed dogs are welcome on our gondolas and all hiking trails.

About Scenic Hiking

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. The pace of the hike will be dictated by the slowest in the group. Nobody gets left behind! If you are seeking a more personalized hiking experience with one of our guides you can book private guided hikes based upon duration. Leashed four-legged friends are always welcome. Be sure to bring water + water dish.
