Historic trail guide released

Tahoe-based writer and editor Suzie Dundas recently released her guidebook “Hiking Lake Tahoe: A History and Trail Guide,” that explores 29 trails with historic significance to the region from the Boca Townsite outside Truckee to the Incline Flume Trail on the East Shore.

However, this the book is like no other trail guide in that each chapter relates to a different historical period in the region and then explores that history from trails that hikers can enjoy today. The chapter on The California Trail, for instance, explores the period of westward migration and trails from Donner Lake to the Sierra Valley that can be visited today to explore that history firsthand. Each chapter represents a different period of historical interest and related hiking trails. | arcadiapublishing.com, suziedundas.com
