Nice hike through Tahoe forest to Castle Rock. Beautiful views. Good rock climbing if you want to go to the top. Trail markings are somewhat confusing, as the hike joins and then leaves a portion of the Tahoe Rim Trail.

Very beautiful trail! Probably one of my favorite views of Tahoe. This is a pretty do-able hike. I must say that the hike up to the top of the rock can is a little daunting but if you take your time then you will be just fine! Highly recommend!

Not as great of a view as I'd hoped for at the end, but it was an enjoyable hike. Easy.

We walked down around the base of the rock and got some great views of the lake. Very much enjoyed this hike.

So awesome. Starts through conifer forest with broken views of the mountains south of the lake. It wraps around and ends at castle rock with absolutely stunning views of the lake and entire Tahoe basin. View from base of the rock allows looks over the lake from the west to the north. Climbing to the top of the rock allows for a near 360 degree view of the basin. The climb to the top of the rock was moderately difficult for my nerves, but my 9 year daughter hopped up and down it like a mountain goat.
