Hazards of Note:   None. Crowd Factor:   Moderate.  This trail had a few bikes on it as well as a number of joggers, especially in the morning.
General Notes:
Pleasant trail which travels through an area heavily shaded most of the way by pine trees.  You are very close to Lake Tahoe for the entire trek, but there are no true views of the lake itself.  It is a very peaceful setting and easy stroll.  There are also about 10 geocaches along the way to check out as well.
