The Lake Tahoe basin in the Sierra Nevada mountain range is one of the most scenic areas in the United States. Spooner Lake is part of Lake Tahoe-Nevada State Park, on the eastern side of the basin, overlooking Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. The park is an alpine fir forest with scattered small clearings, few trails, and lots of rock features and boulder fields to challenge your navigational skills. At 7,000 feet in elevation, the views are stupendous, the forest is mostly open and runnable, and there's no poison oak or rattlesnakes.

The map is the first IOF-standard map used for an A-meet in Nevada, and this US Championships is its first use. You've seen the forests if you've watched "Bonanza" on TV (filmed four miles from Spooner Lake).
