Emerald Bay Trail Run

North Lake Tahoe, California

Thanks to mirror-like Lake Tahoe and High Sierra peaks as a backdrop, the glacier-carved Emerald Bay State Park is the place to run for nature enthusiasts. The course is a manageable 12K (7.5 miles) run that winds through the pine-lined trail all the way to the lake’s Lester Beach cove. (tahoetrailrunning.com)
