Wow, we did this short hike to the base of cave rock and then climbed the rock. Scramble isn't quite how I would describe it, but, at 58, we both managed to find footing all the way to the top and wow, was it worth it. We hated to leave. The free parking area at trailhead is up cave rock... More

this place offers stunning views and it was a sacred cliff for Tahoe Indians, unfortunately the tunnel was digged through which traumatized Indian tribes a lot, so please be careful and respectful to this historical landmark when you hike up

Great views from this site. Short walk from the parking (there is parking nearby but very limited). Well worth the time to visit Cave Rock.

amazing rock outcropping right over the lake.With beautiful breath taking views of the lake, an evening hike to watch the sunset over the mountains makes this trip to Cave Rock so worthwhile.

Got the suggestion from a local bartender, we came here specifically to see a sunset, was a short hike and a little rock climb but the top of cave rock was a spectacular sight to see when the sun was going down across the lake.

On our way up from Carson City this always meant we were almost at Stateline. From it this most gorgeous of all American lakes unfolds like a master's canvas of the perfect seascape,

If you want to climb up on the rock, find Cave Rock Drive across the road from the beach parking. Wind up the hill a short distance where it ends in an unmarked parking area. The path is evident until the end where you can pick your way though the rocks and trees a short distance to the top of... More

Cave Rock State Park (a Nevada state park) is by the tunnel area one drives through on the East Side of the lake. There is a nice view of Lake Tahoe from the pay for fee park. One can launch their boat from this state park. There are breautiful views and we have stopped here often. Tonight, we stopped in... More

We launched our kayaks from here because, unlike other potential put ins, there's no problem bringing your dog with you, as long as it's on a leash. We were able to paddle North along the shoreline for 6 miles or so before turning back. We returned around 6pm, and were told by a local that they usually lock everything up... More
