The trail wasn't too hard to find, based on others instructions, but most of it was too steep, and covered in pine needles (making us slide back down). I'm sure it's a great view at the top, we just had issues, even in good hiking shoes, so we didn't finish.

Short steep 1/4 mile walk from parking area up behind the Biltmore Casiso. Old fire lookout, now a well planned out historical trailed path with plenty of explanation posters and signs regarding flora, fauna, geography and more. View the entire lake, often photographer do great work here for dawn and sunsets, the secret asset few visit.

You must climb up Stateline Lookout. I think I took a few hundred pictures. Once on top we thought we were going to cry. The view was just unreal, truly breathtaking!!

Altho a bit hard to find (Reservoir Road is just east of the Tahoe Biltmore), there is adequate parking space -- though right on the narrow street. The views across Crystal Bay were great as well as the views at the top of the lookout at about 7100 feet. Although the old fire road was mostly in the shade, I... More

Very limited street parking. 125 uphill yds to the most fabulous views of Lake Tahoe. Like being on a plane or parasail. Please pick up your litter. This is bear country and you don't want to see them killed so you can take great photos. Enjoy!
