Go for a Hike.

Parts of Lake Tahoe offer lift-assisted hiking for you and your furry friend. Northstar and Squaw Valley will take you and your leashed dog up to some trails in enclosed gondola cars. Other beautiful hikes that do not require a gondola assist would be the Mount Rose Trail, Tunnel Creek Trail, Marlette Lake and Chimney Beach Loop Trail, and Galena Falls Trail to name a few.
