The Glen Alpine Trailhead is located to the south of Lake Tahoe and Fallen Leaf Lake. Many different hikes can be taken from this trailhead. For a short walk, try the 2 mile hike to Grass Lake. Another hike to Lake Aloha leads you past a small waterfall, a beautiful meadow and three alpine lakes. A third option is a moderate hike to Half Moon, Alta Morris or Gilmore lakes. If Mt. Tallac is your goal, the Glen Alpine Trail offers a more moderate approach.

A wilderness permit is required for this trail. Day hikers can obtain a permit at the self-service stations located at the trailheads. Overnight users must obtain a permit and pay fees in person from a Forest Service office or the Forest Service Visitor Center.

Directions: From South Lake Tahoe, Take Highway 89 north approximately 3 miles to Fallen Leaf Lake Road. Watch for bicyclists and other cars on this narrow, one-lane road. Continue until you see the Glen Alpine trailhead sign and turn left. Trailhead parking is across from Lily Lake.
