You can start hiking from the Biltmore hotel or you drive a bit further up the road and park at the fire road gate. There are not too many parking spots in this residential area but most of the time you can still fit in. The hike up the fire road is a bit dusty but the end of the... More

A beautiful area to take a quick hike and check out the scenery. The views are just something to see. You don't need a chopper in this area to see nature. The blue lake is so stunning you do not want to leave. Just a great place to check out nature, Wonderful.

Family and dog friendly (6' leash) hike. Road is completely paved to the top, and there's a paved interpretive trail that circles the top of the hill. There are benches along the interpretive trail, and a couple of picnic tables and a restroom near the top. There's an area that has boulders that you can climb to see just a... More

As an avid hiker, I was not inclined to take a 0.5 mile trek. But with a short time window for the day, this hike was the only viable option. If you go to North Tahoe, allow an hour for this jaunt. As others have said, take the road behind the Biltmore, then right to the iron-pipe gate. Take the... More

The road is on the Incline Village side of the Biltmore. Not a lot of parking for sure! The path is steep but about a short half mile. The view is fabulously rewarding! There are some signs along a little path around the summit that give some history and interesting facts.

Discovered this gem by reading another travelers review....and SO glad I did! Hidden up the road behind the Biltmore casino. Well worth the hike and have told many folks not to miss it! Spectacular views...thanks to the family who maintains it for travelers such as myself!!

Follow the signs behind the Biltmore for the winding road , as far as you can go. Park on the side of the road and walk to the top. It is an uphill climb, but the panoramic view of the Tahoe basin is worth it. If you like hiking, this is a lovely trail, especially in summer and fall. In... More

I read about this gem of a lookout on trip advisor and was glad that I did! Its not a well known lookout but should be as the views from it are amazing. Its located just behind the Biltmore casino in Crystal Bay, you turn left off the main road then follow it behind the hotel and around to the... More

We were in Tahoe area for 2.5 days and this was one of our favorite hikes/view. It is located near Biltmore casino on an old fire road. There is a small area for parking on the road (don't block the gate!). This spot is not well known-there were only 2-3 other vehicles when we went. The road is paved and... More
