Named for the rainbows that sparkle in the morning dew, the Rainbow Trail is a special place.  It loops through the largest meadow/marsh at Lake Tahoe.  Join a naturalist on the trail and discover how the meadow, marsh, and stream are connected to lake clarity. 

The Taylor Creek Visitor Center is located three miles north of the “Y” on Highway 89.  For more information, call (530) 543-2674.
