The first phase of the Eastern Sierra Scenic Byway is now complete, and colorful signs have been placed along Hwy 395 to identify each site. Highlighting a land of wonderful contrasts, the byway stretches approximately 220 miles from Little Lake to Topaz and features recreational opportunities, community services, and items of natural and cultural interest. There are 23 scenic turnouts and interpretive displays.
A complete all-season travel destination, this area offers boating, water-skiing, fishing, camping, hiking, mountain biking, and winter skiing as well as fine dining and resorts with headliner entertainment. Lake Tahoe itself-the largest and deepest alpine lake in North America-is ringed by mountains and resorts.
