Located at Echo Summit just off Highway 50
on the rim of the Tahoe Basin, we are about a 4 hour drive
from Berkeley. Lake Tahoe is
only a ten mile drive from camp. We are located right along
the Pacific Crest Trail and the Tahoe Rim Trail. We are in the
Eldorado National Forest and very near Desolation Wilderness.|

The Pacific Crest Trail is a major US Trail.
It leads from the Mexican border to the Canadian
Border along the spine of the Sierra and Cascade
