“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Must see spot at Lake Tahoe! As a "flatlander" I loved the view but I was terrified of the heights! We did a family picture and it's been my screen saver every since.

“Well Worth the Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Not quite enough parking but I guess that keeps any overcrowding at any given time to a minimum. The view is spectacular and overlooks Emerald Bay and the island with a castle. There is some interesting Indian facts and information on the scenery but the view is the draw.

“Do not miss this spot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Our hotel guy in Tahoe at the Alder Inn told us about this spot. You cant usually get to it during the winter months because of the road but..the road happened to be open this week. Amazing spot to see. We went for sunset one day and went back for sunrise the next morning. both spectacular.

“Breathtaking view with historical value.”

Went for a drive since there was no skiing and so happy we did. Beautiful view of the lake and signs at the parking area that tells historical information. Glad we took the drive!

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We went on a day that it was really foggy and snowy, so we didn't really see much - went back the next day and WOW - so beautiful. Glad we took the time to drive back up!
