Trek the Backcountry

The Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park Spooner Backcountry is home to Spooner Lake, a popular location for picnicking and fishing during the warmer months. However, Spooner Lake is a great destination during winter as well.

The backcountry surrounding the lake features 12,000 acres of forested space with over 50 miles of hiking, equestrian and mountain biking trails. These trails offer a great place to snowshoe when the weather turns cold and the ground is covered in snow. The beauty of nature is enhanced when everything is glistening with icy frost.
