The Tahoe Rim Trail out of the Mt. Rose trailhead is a wonderful hike. If you take the right trail (counterclockwise-wise ) at the split, it is about 2.4 miles to a nice little waterfall. Continue following the trail up a series of switchbacks, and keep on going. This part of the hike is a bit more challenging than the... More

Did the 9 miles of single track & then the Flume trail. Its a great moderate Mtn bike ride with killer views. One of the best Mtn bike rides at Tahoe.

Amazing view of Tahoe, together with many other great spot. Also a great place to be if you wanna be away from all the very touristy areas.

For those visiting Northeast Lake Tahoe who enjoy the outdoors, the hike to Mt. Rose and adjacent Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) is not to be missed! The wildflowers in mid-July were spectacular. Wildlife near Mt. Rose Summit included a big, beautiful buck and a marmot.

One of the best trail systems in the world! The main TRT is 165 miles long and roughly follows the ridge line around the Tahoe Basin. It also interconnects with hundreds of miles of other trains to create unparalleled access to the jewel of the Sierra.

This trail is a remarkable achievement by, mostly volunteers, and has been completed in recent years for hiking around Lake Tahoe. There are many staging areas. Horses, hikers, and in some areas, bikes. So many dramatic vistas! Volunteers continues to maintain this trail system and I highly recommend it.

We've hiked a number of parts of this trail. We just hiked out at the top of Kingsbury Grade. We did the south trail near Heavenly Valley's NV run. Great views of the Carson Valley and Lake Tahoe from the rim. Make sure you carry water and enjoy the quiet and the views.

This is a must-do hike while in the Tahoe region. It's a well-marked trailhead off Hwy 431 with restrooms and parking. Start behind the restrooms and up some stairs to gain access to the trail. This is a 10 mile hike out and back, but you can stop halfway through at the waterfall. The views are stunning. The first 2.5... More
