Dog Friendly Hiking Trails in South Lake Tahoe, CA

Dog Friendly Hiking Trails in South Lake Tahoe, CA There are dog friendly hiking trails in South Lake Tahoe, and many more nearby. Use the links below to get an overview of each one, see pictures, print directions, and even read reviews from other dog owners. Coming from out of town? 

Most trails around the Tahoe Basin allow dogs as long as they are leashed. Anywhere along the Tahoe Rim Trail will make for an exceptional option with views, and since it spans around the entire lake you won’t have trouble accessing from wherever you are. Although we love our dogs here, this is not the type of place where you’ll see disposable bags at every trail or beach, so always remember to be prepared and treat our home like it’s your own.

If you think you love hiking in Tahoe, just imagine how much your dog-friend will. From hiking to walks around the lake, you’ll quickly realize that this lake town was built with man’s best friend in mind. Sneak some fetch in with your fur-family.

Leashed dogs are welcome at Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit in South Lake Tahoe, CA. Many pups enjoy playing in the snow, and dogs in good shape will have great fun accompanying you on short cross-country or snowshoeing trips. Dogs should be on a 6′ leash and have proper identification tags.

Fallen Leaf Lake Trailhead

Van Sickle Bi-State Park

Stunning scenery. Not many  people on the trails here. Trail is not clearly defined in many places, but easy to get back on track.

This is a very popular area for snowshoeing and walking, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring. The trail is open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime.

Dogs are welcome and may be off-leash in some areas.

Seasonal Road Closure: In the winter, when the campground is closed, you must park just beyond Fallen Leaf Campground off of Fallen Leaf Lake Road and walk to the trailhead.

* There is a $10 day use fee for parking.

Van Sickle Bi-State Park is located within a few minutes’ walk from the Stateline casino core. The park is adjacent to the largest bed base in the Lake Tahoe Basin, and will connect with the Conservancy’s proposed South Tahoe Greenway, the Tahoe Rim Trail’s Van Sickle Connector and Daggett Trail System, and the nearby, Conservancy-funded Explore Tahoe Urban Trailhead.

Head out on this 3.5-mile loop trail near Stateline, Nevada. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 1 h 34 min to complete. This is a very popular area for hiking and running, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring.

Tamarack Lake Trail

Big Meadow to Dardanelles Lake via Tahoe Rim Trail

Explore this 7.4-mile out-and-back trail near South Lake Tahoe, California. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 3 h 3 min to complete.

Don’t let the modest distance/gain to Tamarack fool you. This is such a rocky climb you can wear out just trying to keep your footing, especially if not used to hiking at almost 7,800 ft.  Views of Echo lakes and surrounding peaks are incredibly breathtaking. Tamarack Lake is a perfect destination for beginners, small children, or the 1st overnight hike trip. The trail is very rocky, with large boulders & many smaller, loose rocks covering the trail (hard on dog paws).   

Continue on the Tahoe Rim Trail past the signed turn to Tamarack, you’ll reach Lake Aloha just past the meadows — worth the longer, more strenuous hike.  Permits are required to hike in the Desolation Wilderness (n/c) & are available at both upper/lower Echo lakes.

This is a very popular area for camping, hiking, and snowshoeing, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring. The best times to visit this trail are March through November.

Dogs are welcome and may be off-leash in some areas.

Discover this 8.4-mile out-and-back trail near South Lake Tahoe, California. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 3 h 50 min to complete.

One of our favorite hikes! Breathtaking, secluded lake. Lots of shade so it’s great on a hot day. Spectacular swimming and dog friendly.  Make sure to start hiking at early to avoid the heat on summer days if you get there by 8am you can be out by noon.

There can be a lot of mosquitoes all along the trail so you should prepare for that by bringing bug spray. There are also three creek crossings with no bridges, so if you have poor balance bring some walking sticks.

This is a very popular area for birding, camping, and hiking, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring. The best times to visit this trail are March through October.

Dogs are welcome and may be off-leash in some areas.
