The visitor's center has a stream profile, so that you can watch trout and salmon swim. It has great views of the mountains, and a path down to the beach. A MUST WHEN IN TAHOE.

Only open late Spring to Early Fall, but the hiking trails are our favorites! Birding, hiking near lake, beautiful beaches for a picnic, great interpretive signage.

Loved this walk. Most things were closed because its not summer. Most of the paths were flooded with water so I got soaked! It was still an enjoyable trip though. Worth it.

The walk was easy and barrier free. A very thoughtful array of signage through the walk to the creek the salmon were spawning and were quite a sight along the river, especially from the bridge. Great views of the mountains.

We have visited Taylor Creek several times over the years, but the Fall is always the best. Between the changing Aspens and the Kokanee salmon returning to spawn, a pleasant short walk becomes a must see. You can even walk underground for an up close...More

Beautiful 1/2 mile (paved) trail where you can watch the Salmon spawning. Very family/pet friendly. Excellent for taking photograph.

Depends on how much snow is left. The paved trails are not plowed. The visitors center will probably not be open until Memorial Day.
