Before the lake became a preserve in the 1800s Walter Hobart owned and operated a lumber camp here. Hobart was buying up water rights and sending his right hand man William Tiffany to purchase prime woodlands for lumbering in the region. This led to a resort where many of the lumberers would enjoy with their families on the weekends. This lake contains six very rare cutthroat Lahontan wild trout whom have been here since the last ice age. Lola Montez whom came here has a peak named after her which is the most prominent in the region. Lola Montez went on to become the Belle Of The Californian Gold Rush but also name this lake after the 4th of July. In the mid 1900s Walt Disney wanted to build a ski resort and village on the north end of the lake. Sadly he passed away before his dream would become a reality. Years later this lake became a preserve all 2000 acres to help conserve the rare fish species, wild life and area which still today has been hardly touched by man. When you journey with me you will traverse its beautiful pristine shoreline seeing nature along the way till we picnic at a hidden little cove which serves as the watershed for the little Truckee River. Many scenic peaks, jewels and the beauty of the Tahoe National Forest.
