Easy trail that goes to the top of the tunnel over hwy 50. Well maintained, all ages to the base of the rocks that form the tunnel. Little more climbing there but still easy to get to top of rocks. WONDERFUL picture spot. Kid friendly for non-squeamish parents. This is a walking trail for sure.

Great easy trail. Gorgeous sunsets. The hike is good for kids until you get to the rock crest to see the actual sunset. It’s not too hard, but with waining light it can be a little challenging for young kids.

Amazing views from the top of Cave Rock. We took our kids (ages 6 thru 12) and they were able to make it to the top no problem. Very busy trail, we only got a couple minutes up at the top by ourselves.

I had done this hike before but going for sunset was really cool! It is a short and easy hike but one of the best views of the lake. I would suggest getting there early if you are going for sunset because it was pretty busy up on the rock. but well worth it.

Did this hike at sunset. BEAUTIFUL sunset but HIGH traffic. Sunset was 8:30 we got there at 7... min amount of people but around 8 a billion people showed up. Little hard to enjoy the sunset when there were THAT many people. Otherwise hike was easy, view was great, sunset was worth it!

The best view of Tahoe lake that I have seen. You can see from north to south and the hike is maybe 5 mins. So easy and so worth the view! The scramble up the rocks is not bad. Mostly like very steep stairs but you will need to use your hands at some points. I saw a lady do it at least 6 months pregnant but I think she came up a lot. I posted a pic of the scramble to refer to.

Great trail. Easy to walk. Takes about 10 minutes to get to the rock that you can climb to the top of. Just be careful, very steep edges!
