Exploring the New Tahoe East Shore Trail

Exploring the New Tahoe East Shore Trail

by SHRED DOG Editor July 22, 2019 0 Comments

With more than 70 miles of shoreline surrounding Lake Tahoe, the things to do with kids on and around the lake are truly limitless. Yet one of the most beautiful parts of the lake, the northeast shoreline with its aqua blue water and exposed boulders, has historically been less accessible than others. Until now.

The new (as of July 2019) Tahoe East Shore Trail is a 3-mile long, paved trail for hiking and biking the shoreline between the Tunnel Creek Cafe in Incline Village and Sand Harbor Beach. With more development still to come, the trail offers up truly amazing views of the lake, 11 shoreline access points, 17 designated vista points, and features a 810-foot long bridge. We'll bring the bikes next time but here are a few of the highlights from our family's recent outdoor adventure with the kids on the Tahoe East Shore Trail.

Scrambling on rocks leads to dancing on rocks for this little bug.

Size Guides

SHRED DOG size guides are based on body size not garment measurements. Please note that all SHRED DOG products are designed to layer, therefore each product is cut and sized to accommodate the appropriate layers underneath it. 

In general, we have found that one size larger than the child's age is typically what most families choose to allow more room for growth. But to be sure, it is always best to measure.

Measuring Tips

To get the best fitting products please take a few minutes to measure your kid following these simple steps. For all measuring use a flexible tape.

  1. Chest - Measure horizontally across the fullest area of the chest
  2. Waist - Measure horizontally around the narrowest part of the waist, (which is about 2 inches above the belly button)
  3. Hip - With feet together measure around the fullest point of the hip,  keeping the tape measure horizontal 
  4. Inseam - Without shoes on, measure from front crotch straight down to the floor and reduce 1/2" 
  5. Height - Measure from floor straight up to the top of the head
  6. Sleeve Length - Measure from center back across shoulder point and down the arm to the wrist
