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.

Short hike - well worth it. Beautiful views of Tahoe. Parking can be challenging!

If you live in the Tahoe area, you have to go hike this trail. it is the biggest bang for your buck in my opinion. Yes, it is only .8 miles round-trip, but there is a bit of scrambling at the very end to get to the top of Cave Rock. There are complimentary views just below the scramble, which will still have made the short hike worth it, but if you are sure footed and not afraid of heights, go the extra bit to see some of the most magnificent views of Lake Tahoe around.

Easy hike until you hit the rock. Not for the faint heart but the view on top is stunning.

Very short, quick, and mostly easy hike to a PHENOMENAL panoramic view at the top of the rock. The last 100 yards are basically easy scrambling up stairs of rocks, no real exposure except one side. It's very worth the 30-45 minute round trip time.

Short, easy trail to the rock scramble at the end. Not a climber by any means but made it up to the STUNNING view just peachy. Was there for sunset and saw some other people but not terribly crowded.
