Great day hike off the TRT to the Spur Trail Viewpoint (Picnic Rock). Easy gain in elevation with aw inspiring views of Lake Tahoe and surrounding peaks makes this a must do short hike in the Tahoe area.

Not too busy Labor Day weekend. Handful of hikers, no cyclists. Parking available on the uphill side of 267 if you drive up a very short distance to the trailhead signboard, plenty of space on the wrong side of 267 as well.
