Adventure Description

Adventure Description

You will be hard-pressed to find a nicer view in all of Lake Tahoe, particularly one that does not require a lengthy hike. Overlooking Crystal Bay, high above the casinos, resorts, and the California-Nevada state line, the Stateline Fire Lookout is one of the best lake views along the north shore. With informational plaques provided along the way, The Stateline Fire Lookout is both beautiful and educational.

To reach the lookout park near the blocked fire road at the end of Lookout Road. Park along the wall, making sure not to block the gate. The lookout is half a mile walk up the mostly-paved road. Informational signs along the path impart knowledge on the area and Lake Tahoe in general. Once you reach the end of the road, you can continue onto the rock lookout for a fantastic vista, including the majority of the lake, Kings Beach and the ski resorts in the distance. Make sure to bring your camera!
