Fall Time is Adventure Time in North Lake Tahoe: Fun for the Entire Family!
October 13, 2022 | Jill Amen
North Lake Tahoe in the fall means fewer crowds, beautiful autumn temperatures, crisp mornings and nights. The stillness in the air, glassy water and the vibrant, golden hues present subtle yet colorful changes to our great outdoors. Whether on the trails or at one of the fun fall events, it’s Mother Nature’s time to remind us of the cozy days ahead at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort.
Fall is also a time for exploring. One terrific way to explore North Lake Tahoe is with the Great MLRTahoe Hatdrop. There will be new Hatdrops through most of October; lots of clues and prizes to make it fun for the entire family! The hunt will take you to some truly amazing places all around the region – places you may have yet to discover.
How to Play: Clues are posted in live time on our Instagram page @mlrtahoe. Then, follow our Blog, emails (sign up here), and on MLRTahoe Facebook for more clues on the latest Hatdrop, photos, videos, past drops and more. The lucky treasure hunters will get to keep the hat, grab some free ice cream at the Famous Mourelatos Cable Car Ice Cream…and enter a drawing for a chance to win a two night stay at Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort.

Recommended Adventures: Monkey Rock for Hikers; Flume Trail for Mountain Bikers
One of the best hikes for fall is to Monkey Rock, a local artist-carved, granite boulder resembling a monkey—and it really does! Only a 2.5 miles roundtrip, this hike offers epic, panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. Great for all ages with just over 400 feet of elevation gain. If you want more distance and climbing, simply follow the trail up further. Located on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe on HWY 28, just past Incline Village, going East. Park in one of the paid lots at the bottom of the hill or find free off-street parking a little farther away. To reach the trail, walk up Tunnel Creek Road as it heads up the hill in a southern direction behind the Tunnel Creek Cafe. After the hike, stay for a beer or snack at the fun, locally run cafe.
If you are up for a serious mountain bike adventure, try the Flume Trail, a moderate-to challenging one way, 14-mile ride at 7000′ to 8100′ feet. Over 1000′ of climbing in the first four miles and 4.5 miles of single track. The Flume Trail traverses above several steep sections. It can be a wild ride for some and is recommended for intermediate to expert riders. Adventure is not the only reward; the views are spectacular and Marlette Lake is very accessible for a cold dip. This trail is not for the faint of heart; go only as far as you are comfortable. Either way, you’ll enjoy the views, beautiful surroundings and the adventure of it all. You can access this trail at Tunnel Creek or by heading to Spooner Lake day use area in the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, just north of the Hwy 50 junction on the East Shore. Follow signs to the trailhead via the North Canyon Rd.
Let us take you on your next adventure. Join us this fall!
