Lake Tahoe › Potem Falls Trailhead
Added by The Outbound Collective
Short hike to a tall falls that drops into a perfect swimming hole!
Park in the pull-out on Fenders Ferry Road. There you will find the Potem Falls trailhead. The hike is only 0.5 miles long--you'll likely spend more time enjoying the falls than getting there! Bring your swim gear if you want to jump in the pool. Trail is dog friendly and open March-October.
