Emerald Bay Lake Tahoe

A self-supported trip created by Pertribe135

Trip Overview

Launched from Baldwin Beach with two tandems and paddled along the shore of Lake Tahoe to Emerald Bay. Lots of nesting osprey fishing and feeding the nestlings. Paddled to the waterfall and castle at Vikingsholm. Saw a mother merganser and her tiny duckling swimming along the shore. Lots of ladybugs hatching. Saw the paddle wheeler tourist boat on the way back. The map in the photo shows us cutting overland across a point at the lake end of Emerald Bay. The app quit tracking briefly; we paddled around that point
