If you don’t live at Tahoe you might not be aware of a great secret the locals keep from you. Hopefully they will not ostracize me and take away my locals credentials for passing it on here: September is better than August. It is just as beautiful, but the kids are back in school and the crowds are gone. If you can just find a way to get yourself here on a clear blue sky Wednesday morning in September you will know you have reached heaven.

Paddleboarding or kayaking:

Instead of having to get up at the crack of dawn to avoid the water skiers and wake boarders, who of course are getting up early to avoid the other water skiers and wakeboarders, you can take your time. Have a relaxing breakfast and another leisurely cup of coffee and let the temperature warm up a bit before heading down to Hurricane Bay or Tahoe Park, or along the shore of Donner Lake. There you can carry your board down to the empty beach, head out into the glassy water, and perhaps see one or two boats while you paddle joyfully for an hour.

Bike riding

Whether you are riding to the top of Barker Pass, from Donner Lake to Cisco Grove, or just along the Truckee River, the number of cars you will encounter on our favorite road rides is dramatically reduced this time of year. The same holds true for getting out on the mountain bike and riding the Emigrant Trail in Truckee, or the trails at Tahoe Cross-Country in Tahoe City. Pretty soon you will find lots of fall colors, but not lots of people.

Spend the night in the wilderness

The trails into the Desolation Wilderness are amazingly beautiful any time of year, but if you head out for a backpacking trip in September, you just might have one of Desolation’s prettiest lakes all to yourself.

Lie down on the beach and do nothing

Of course once you are done paddle boarding or kayaking or bike riding or hiking, you can drag a chair and a book and your favorite refreshment down to the beach. Then with the lake all to yourself alternate between reading a page and gazing out onto our favorite patch of big blue. Yep, now we are talking.
