Take the trolley to Emerald Bay
Emerald Bay is one of the most heavily visited spots in Tahoe. On the weekends, parking can be a nightmare and ruin a well-planned day. A great alternative, especially for families, is the open-air Nifty 50 Trolley, which leaves regularly from Tahoe City from the north and Camp Richardson, the South Y, and other points from the south. See the 2018 schedule and fare information.
