Page Meadow is known for its splendid displays of wildflowers and is popular for its easy access from Lake Tahoe. Hiked this section of the Tahoe Rim Trail with M. and G. We completed the part of section 8 from Tahoe City, trailhead near where the Truckee River leaves Lake Tahoe, to Ward Creek. The return was via a shorter route, also through some nice meadows. There are a number of alternative trails in this area.
