Lake Tahoe Basin Map

Lake Tahoe Basin MapMany believe that Lake Tahoe was formed by the collapse of an ancient volcanic crater, but the natural lake and mountain basin was actually formed by the rise and fall of the landscape due to faulting.

The Tahoe Basin which spans approximately 22 miles long (and 12 wide), is located on top of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Separating California from Nevada state, a year-round, mountain resort destination. In particular, this is considered the north part of the majestic Eastern Sierra range. Furthermore, Lake Tahoe is often referred to as “Jewel of the Sierra”.camp map

Angeles National Forest is registered as California Historical Landmark #717, for being the first National Forest in the state.

The Angeles National Forest covers a total of 700,176 acres, protecting large areas of the San Gabriel Mountains and Sierra Pelona Mountains. It is located just north of the densely inhabited metropolitan area of Greater Los Angeles.

While primarily within Los Angeles County, a small part extends eastward into southwestern San Bernardino County, in the Mount San Antonio (Mount Baldy) area, and a tiny section also extends westward into northeastern Ventura County, in the Lake Piru area.

The San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, established in 2014 and managed by the U.S. Forest Service, is largely within the Angeles National Forest.

The Angeles National Forest manages the habitats, flora and fauna ecosystems, and watersheds. Some of the rivers with watersheds within its boundaries provide valuable non-groundwater recharge water for Southern California. The existing protected and restored native vegetation absorb and slow surface runoff of rainwater to minimize severe floods and landslides in adjacent communities.

The land within the forest is diverse, both in appearance and terrain. Elevations range from 1,200′ to 10,064′. The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the forest.
