But, that’s not all:

You are given clues and then get to hike in the forest, wander North Lake Tahoe’s beautiful beaches and play in the lake—all while finding a cool MLRTahoe Hat with a special message inside that will lead you to more treasures and prizes.

Park near Trail Head, Follow the trail up to view the dramatic yet tranquil surroundings and the convergence of Alpine and Palisades Ski Resorts; continue just 1.5 miles from the trailhead, past beautiful rock formations and shaded forests. Before arriving at the Lakes keep your eye on the right, find the rock cropping that crosses that joins the trail, and look for the twisted tree on the right and the gnarly roots that hold the hat…Coordinates: 39.17912N, 120.23989W.
