We’ve been fortunate enough to be able to film in national forests across the United States for our PBS TV series “Travels with Darley,” so when we heard about the first-ever National Forest Week, kicking off July 8th and running through July 14th, we knew we had to debut some of our newest 360 videos. Filmed in May in and around Lake Tahoe, Nevada, using the Insta360 One X, these videos capture blue bird sky days and the stunning public lands in the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.
The Tahoe Rim Trail is 165+ miles of single-track trail open to hiking, horse riders, and mountain bikers in most areas. Fifty miles of the trail is co-located with the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail and part of the National Trails System.
7 in 10 Americans live within a 2 hour drive of a National Forest, meaning there are lots of great places to get out and enjoy your national forests. We certainly have enjoyed sharing the experiences with you.
Learn more about National Forest Week and use the hashtag #NationalForestWeek on social to celebrate. Learn about how to submit your National Forest photo by July 14 to win great prizes like custom framing, America the Beautiful public lands pass and more.
