“Great place to see various types of fora and fauna.”

Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

The walk is easy and beautiful with interpretation on the markers to identify types of plants and animals you see. Be sure to call ahead. When we were there in mid-September, 2018 the stream profile was closed for repairs. It is still fun to visit.

Have been here many, many times and always enjoy it. We were lucky enough to be there when the Kokanee salmon were running up Taylor Creek. A great place for the kids to see how a stream really looks from under water.

Not sure how we heard of this place, but we've visited several times. First 4-5 times we'd park on the edge of Hwy 89 and the fish viewing room is a short 50-75 yard walk on a paved path. The room is low and excellent to see a lot of small 3" fish, but there was also red salmon adults slightly visible through the beaver created murky water when they build their dams, etc. Thiswasthe 1st visit that we went out the other end of the chamber a short ways(80 yards?) to a bridge overlooking the creek and there were about 200+ red salmon in their spawning mode clearly visible from the railing. Amazing! There is a road access off of Hwy 89 on the south side of the reek that takes you to a visitors center with restrooms, but the walk from the parking lot to the chamber and creek I mentioned is maybe a scenic 1/4th mile each way. If it's hard for someone in your group to walk far, please remember that parking off to the side of the road on Hwy is MUCH closer to the fish. There are beavers living in the area and there are signs of their activities clearly visible. A wonderful free experience for all! Please refrain from carving your initials in the aspen tree bark, please!

We enjoyed our walk on Rainbow Trail to Stream Profile Chamber It is a beautiful walk to the stream profile chamber. It has tree, meadow, mountain and stream views.

When one gets to the stream profile chamber, which is open 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., one gets to see trout fishing.

My parents took us there when we were kids, we took our kids and now our kids are taking their kids. They have done a wonderful job with the outdoor signage and the attractions on the inside are beautiful and fun. The kids love to view the fish below.

Make sure you don't miss it when you are in South Lake Tahoe!
