We enjoyed the leisurely walk on Rainbow Trail to see the Trout Stream Profile Area. There is nice views of Taylor Creek area and also of Mt. Tallac. There is nice meadow areas to see as well. There are various places along the trail to also sit and enjoy listening to the birds.

This review is for Rainbow Trail, South Lake Tahoe. Could only find listing for Rainbow Trail Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Had a nice relaxing walk on the trail. Beaver dams, wasteland or wetland - jump down on a section to feel the softer ground underneath your feet. Views of Mt. Tallac with no snow. Fish in their natural habitat.

Wish we could go back in the fall when the fish are spawning. The trail was simple, well kept, easy to find, and a good place to warm up for the bigger hikes to come.

Its an ok place to visit. Only interesting if you are camping nearby. Not worth travelling in the summer, its too damn hot.
