Walking and Hiking at Palisades Tahoe
At Olympic Valley from August 22- September 17th 2021, the Shirley Canyon Trail and Granite Chief Trail are closed. The Western States Trail can be accessed via the Thunder Mountain Trail out of the base area, but not by points east. At Alpine Meadows, all forested areas are within National Forest land, so access is currently prohibited. This includes the Five Lakes Trail.
Please obey all posted signage and closure barriers.
The Thunder Mountain Trail and the Western States Trail, excluding the portion that is currently closed for gondola construction, will remain open. The hikes from High Camp on the upper mountain will remain open as well and can be accessed via the Aerial Tram (subject to closure pending conditions).
