Lake Tahoe is not only the perfection vacation for you and your family, but for your beloved dogs too. Being such a dog-friendly destination, there are a multitude of both summer and winter activities for you and your pooch to enjoy together. From beaches to restaurants, and everything in between, here are our top 5 activities to enjoy with our fur babies.
Page Meadows is part of the Tahoe National Forest and offers stunning views of the Sierra crest. This is an easy day hike or just a beautiful place to let your pup run free and make some new doggy friends.
Plenty of happy feet have made these trails easy to access, even after the big snow. Drive down Highway 89 from Tahoe City and turn right on Pine Street. Veer right Tahoe Park Heights Drive and continue up the steep hill (make sure your tires are ready for the climb!) Turn right on Big Pine Drive and make your first left on Silvertip Drive. The unmarked trail begins at the end of Silvertip. Park here and follow the footpaths and you’ll be led to the beautiful meadows. Enjoy!
2.Tahoe City Winter Sports Park
Tahoe Cross Country is a great option when you are ready to get a work out alongside your dog. Tahoe Cross Country welcomes dogs to join their owners while they cross country ski. There are more than 8 kilometers of trails that can help tire both you and your pup out. As long as our dog remains under your voice they are permitted to run free. They will be sure to meet other dogs on the trails and have a blast!
3.Alibi Ale Works
After a good workout with your dog, it’s time to unwind and grab a beer together. Alibi Ale Works is a local craft brewery that is enjoyed by owners and dogs alike. Alibi has a wide range of rotating beers that are brewed with Lake Tahoe Water. There are a few different rooms that you can settle in your brew and your best friend. Dogs are required to be on leash and well trained.
4.Tahoe Cross Country Center
Tahoe City Winter Sports Park is a great area for families to enjoy winter sports with their kids and dogs, without having to trek to the resorts. The park includes a full-service lodge, sledding hill, 4 km of cross country trails, a snowshoe loop, and brand new ice rink. Great for kids! Well-behaved leashed dogs welcome on the snowshoe trail.
Winter or summer time, Waterman’s landing is a hangout favorite for dog lovers. Located in Carnelian Bay, this popular dog-friendly beach is a must-go to for the pups who want to take a quick dip in the water, roll around in the snow, or just make some new friends alongside their favorite humans.
Of course, we can’t forget the top place to find your perfect dog-friendly vacation house is Tahoe Moon Properties.
