The Tahoe Rim Trail is one of the most iconic and beautiful long-distance recreation trails in the world. The 165+ mile single-track trail is open to hiking, equestrians, and mountain biking (in most areas). The trail circumnavigates the ridgelines of Lake Tahoe, crossing six counties, four National Forests, three wilderness areas, two states, and one state park.
Granlibakken Tahoe is the only hotel property that intersects with the Rim Trail. Whether you are just planning a few day hikes, or if you are planning on completing the full trail, Granlibakken offers a great starting or stopping point.
For backpackers planning on completing the full trail, Granlibakken offers a variety of amenities and services to give you some respite during your adventure. You can mail non-perishable food and supplies to our address (please contact us before doing so!) and book a night so that you can get some rest in a real bed and enjoy a hot shower. Our pool offers a great place to relax and unwind after a day on the trail.
For those just interested in day hikes or mountain biking, Granlibakken is a great choice. We suggest heading out on the trail towards Paige Meadows, a 3-mile hike (6-miles round trip). This is also a popular mountain biking trail, with some technical parts but mostly a fun single-track, great for all abilities. Paige Meadows is a gorgeous destination, especially in early summer, when the wildflowers are in bloom. Enjoy a hike or bike through the series of connected meadows surrounded by the Sierras, where you can enjoy not only the plant life but also an abundance of wildlife.
No matter how you want to experience the outdoors in Lake Tahoe, Granlibakken has the accommodations, amenities, and resources to make your journey a memorable one.
