Flagpole Peak

October 26, 2021

Great news for the South Lake Tahoe backcountry for the upcoming season! On Saturday, October 23, the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) of the US Forest Service lifted forest closures for the Echo Skyline near Meyers in South Lake Tahoe, including Angora, Echo and Flagpole Peaks to the shores of both Upper and Lower Echo Lakes. Talking Mountain and Becker Peak, south of Echo Lakes, remain closed.

Big thanks to the US Forest Service and all other agencies and personnel involved in protecting South Lake Tahoe during the Caldor Fire and restoring the our public lands. Please respect all forest orders and restrictions. Many closures remain in effect within the burn area due to hazardous post-burn conditions, in addition to forest restoration efforts.
