Burton Creek State Park is over 2,000 acres of wilderness just outside of Tahoe City. Over six miles of the area are dedicated to hiking and cross country skiing trails. There's no prominent signage, so the slightly obscure locale remains relatively undiscovered, promising an uncrowded and serene hiking experience.
Numerous side trails come and go along this route, providing an array of options for trip extensions and alternate starting points. Make sure you pack a map, as the intersecting trails and roads can be quite confusing at times.
