Beautiful hike. The trailhead is off of Cave Rock Dr, not at Cave Rock State Park. We hiked on a clear path up until we reached what looked like I giant pile of rock. It’s a steep climb up the rocks to the top but...More

Easy walk/hike and if you are willing to do some creative rock climbing you are rewarded with a view. Felt like we were right on the edge of the world on top of the cave rock with a straight drop off on the other side.

Unfortunately, climbing up Cave Rock wasn't an option for us, but it is impressive to look at and photograph. I didn't tell my daughter about it when we drove to it and she saw it coming and asked what the heck that was.

Short steep hike up from the parking area (in a neighborhood "Cave Rock Trail Head" on WAZE - not Cave Rock Beach) - the last part is a scramble up the back side of the rock that is above the tunnel! There is no set...More

Because of good weather with no snow, we've decided to climb there. The reward was great as the view great was. It must be great spot for sunsets. The whole rock and short trial connecting this spot with very small parking spot is colorful and...More

We went to the nice park with scenic views of Lake Tahoe. This time we were there on Labor Day. Cave Rock is very pretty.

Not a beach, hike to a vantage point overlooking the lake. For beach, try Kiva or Tahoe keys East Cove or anything on the East Shore Nevada State Park.
