Went snowshoeing to see the sunset, very windy once we got to the lake look out. Got some good pics of the red sky and lake. Got dark fast used headlamps on the hike out.

Absolutely incredible views of Lake Tahoe at the top of the trail.
If you are comfortable bouldering/climbing up the rocks your view is even better.
Trailhead is tucked back in a neighborhood area. Limited parking.
Quite a bit of elevation gain.
When you reach the top go to the right/around the back of the rock. Getting to the top is easier from there rather than going straight up or to the right.
Dog friendly!

The main castle rock hike was closed so we did this instead. It was perfect for my younger teen. The view at the end is amazing, you can see the entire lake. Once you get to the rock, make your way around the back to the right and then climb around to the lake side - go up the rock just a little- it is easier than it looks and the reward is well worth it.
