Emerald Bay Trail Run Race Information:

Defined by both the incredible beauty of Lake Tahoe and the towering peaks of the High Sierra, Lake Tahoe is one of the world’s most famous sporting playgrounds. The region has an almost endless variety of spectacular mountain biking trails, adventurous hikes and, of course, waterborne activities on the “Big Blue” – Lake Tahoe – one of the largest, deepest and purest alpine lakes on earth.

The Emerald Bay Trail Run starts at Eagle Point and then takes you around Emerald Bay and up the Rubicon Trail to D.L. Bliss State Park to finish at Lester Beach. The course is a  7 mile/11Km (approximate) point to point route. The course features a mostly single track route with moderate climbs and descents. The trail is somewhat technical with natural granite steps. It is hard not to look at the stellar views of Lake Tahoe!

Emerald Bay State Park is considered one of the most beautiful areas in the United States, as evidenced by its status as a Registered Natural Landmark. Carved by ancient glaciers, Emerald Bay offers unequaled scenic hiking, and trail running.

Majestic Emerald Bay is just a small part of this beautiful and pristine State Park covering 1,830 acres of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. You will find six miles of both rocky and sandy beaches on the magnificent shoreline. You will see ponderosa and jeffrey pines, red and white fir, cedar, junipers and cottonwood, and gnarled and stunted sugar pines.

From promontories such as Rubicon Point in D.L. Bliss State Park you can see over one hundred feet into the depths of Lake Tahoe. From the crest of Eagle Falls in Emerald Bay State Park, you can see a brilliant panorama of Emerald Bay, Fannette Island, Lake Tahoe, and the distant Nevada shore.

Plan on spending the entire day, because once you get here, you won’t want to leave.
