I’ve done a bunch of road trips up to Lake Tahoe but I’ve never gotten on any of the trails, so I’m looking for suggestions.

Tahoe strikes me as a great location for adding a hike to an all day road trip: you just dash up I-80 from the Bay Area, hit the hills near Tahoe for about a half-dozen miles and head back. Granted, it’d be a long day but it wouldn’t be near the challenge of trying the same thing at Yosemite, where it’s five hours to the High Country trails.

Most of you have done this a few times, I suspect. Add your thoughts in the comments.
