During our visit to Lake Tahoe, we hiked to Maggies Peak. It was absolutely beautiful, but it was the toughest hike I’ve ever done! Maggies Peak is located in the Desolation Wilderness in West Lake Tahoe at 8,699 feet. The hike was about 2.5 hours straight uphill! On top of the peak, we were able to view Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe, and Granite Lake.
My brother’s puppy, Balto, had a blast hiking with us. It was wagging its tail with tongue out the entire trip. It probably hiked 3x the distance as us because it kept running around chasing things. It was a long day of hiking, I logged close to 20,000 steps on my Fitbit! The hike was tough but it was a great sense of accomplishment at the end!
