A short hike to the Old Lighthouse.

Tilman Giese

Features Lake · Views

Description

From the parking lot at the end of Lester Beach Road take the Lighthouse Trail as it starts off by climbing the ridge. After about 600 feet, before reaching the top of the ridge the trail makes a sharp left turn. Views of Lake Tahoe and the Old Lighthouse await you along the way. For additional information about the Old Lighthouse, check out the Rubicon Point Lighthouse gem located nearby!

If you continue on the Old Lighthouse Trail, you'll soon reach the Rubicon Trail.
