There's usually one destination that stands out above the others in a magnet area for outdoor recreation such as Lake Tahoe.  Mt. Tallac qualifies on this score, known for its height and dominance as it looms above the lake, and its ever expansive views.  A bonus of this trail is that there are a number of interesting diversions along the way, from small lakes, to boulder fields, and meadows high on the approaching peaks.  It's a tough climb, and best made when the snow fields of late Spring have receded.  Reaching the top though, you'll feel you're scraping the sky in the land of big blue.
