About Pyramid Peak Realty
Why the name Pyramid Peak Properties?
Pyramid Peak is a mountain in the Sierra Nevada mountain range within the Crystal Range, west of Lake Tahoe. It is the highest peak in the Desolation Wilderness area, El Dorado County, California with fine views of Lake Aloha, Lake Tahoe, Mount Tallac, Fallen Leaf Lake, Ralston Peak, and other lakes…. Its unmistakable pyramid shape lends to its name.
Pyramid Peak rises 4,000 feet above the South Fork of the American River Canyon at Twin Bridges. The most popular route, Rocky Canyon is an arduous climb. Pyramid Lake lies at the base of the peak. It offers more vertical relief than any other peak in the Tahoe region, along with great open-bowl skiing above timberline.
From all points in the Lake Tahoe Basin, Kirkwood and the San Joaquin Valley, Pyramid Peak soaring at 9,983 feet is in our presence. A constant reminder the allure of Tahoe is not far and a cool mountain paradise awaits your presence. Pyramid Peak is considered “The Sentinel of the Tahoe Sierra” and Pyramid Peak Properties strives to be the same.
