As of October 1, there’s a new hiking trail at Lake Tahoe. But, this trail probably isn’t like anything you’ve experience before. Because, this one is underwater! If you’re a scuba diver, this is going to be a dream hike for you park ranger Geno Lucich told ABC 10.

The trail is in Emerald Bay which has a pretty interesting past. In the 1920’s and 30’s, it was a privately-owned resort destination with several boats and barges. Years later, the state acquired the land and sunk all the ships. So, you get to see all of the sunken treasures and sights when you do the underwater hike. Which sounds cool AF if you ask me.

All of the wrecks are pretty well preserved because the water in Emerald Bay is cold. Also, that apparently attracts aquatic life. Now, it seems like you have to know how to dive to take this so-called hike. So that might be an obstacle for a lot of people. Or, just the push you need to get PADI certified. Silver lining?
