September in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee is one of the best months in my opinion, because the crowds are gone but the weather is still warm and many summer activities are still enjoyable, as well as some cooler temperatures for biking and hiking.
Go For a Hike
Lake Tahoe is famous for its stunning mountain tops and expensive hiking trails. I have compiled a list of the must visit peaks in the region. September is a great time to tackle these peaks because the temperatures are cool and the threat of snow is still low! Check out the full list here.
September in Tahoe is a prefect time to hit the dirt and go mountain biking. The crowds are low and the air is cooler! Tahoe may be known for its world class skiing and its amazing crystal clear waters, but did you know that Tahoe also offers some of California’s finest mountain bike trails? Check out five of my favorites here!
Kayak and Paddle board
September in Tahoe is a great time to kayak and paddle board because the lake is much calmer after most of the motorized boating is over for the summer. For kayak rentals check out Tahoe Paddle and Ore’s website HERE.
Believe it or not Tahoe often experiences some amazingly warm weather in September which makes it perfect for a dip in the Lake. Locals love this time of year because you often have the beach all to yourself!
