The other day I wanted to put myself in the shoes of our owners at Home Run townhomes and go for a hike. There is nothing greater than to walk out your back door and go for a hike without having to get in your car and drive to a trailhead. I started up the Home Run ski run and made a left towards The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe and headed towards my final destination of Sawmill Lake. The trailhead is located at the top of Big Springs Gondola towards the Cross Country Skiing trails. It was a fun hike with a great reward of a beautiful lake tucked in the woods of Northstar. From Home Run it is only about 3 miles roundtrip and I highly recommend it.
