We headed to a new snowshoeing place (for us), from Mike White’s Snowshoe Trails Tahoe. The trailhead for Scott’s Lake is in Hope Valley, on California Hwy 88 east of Carson Pass. This route is part following roads and part cross country. There was another group up at the lake, and some snowmobile and dogsled activity near the trailhead. Nice clear day.
