Description

The trail is extremely easy until the turn and ascent up Cave Rock. At this point, the trail becomes very steep and rocky, but the views of Lake Tahoe from the top are worth the trek.

Beautiful views of the lake on the rocks over the tunnel in South Tahoe. There is limited parking because of it being in a residential neighbor. 0.4mi
