Taylor Creek Visitor Center Review

At this center operated by the U.S. Forest Service you can visit the site of a Washoe Indian settlement; walk self-guided trails through meadow, marsh, and forest; and inspect the Stream Profile Chamber, an underground display with windows right into Taylor Creek. In fall you may see spawning kokanee salmon digging their nests. In summer Forest Service naturalists organize discovery walks and evening programs.

    Worth the stop

    Free! Nice nature trail with signs explaining the meadows, marshes, forests and streams and their role in keeping Lake Tahoe beautiful. Also explanations of the animals living in the area and how glaciers carved out the lake. The stream profile is really nice, but isn't actually a cut out of the stream like they make you believe. More like an aquarium but it is all natural - water from the stream and fish. By this I mean the fish are stuck in this viewing area, they aren't free to swim down the river. Still never neat to see. The visitors center includes a gift shop area.
