Capture the Sunset Over Lake Tahoe from Stateline Fire Lookout

Details

Distance

-1 miles

Elevation Gain

400 ft

Added by Brittney Banning

The lookout provides some of the most scenic views of Lake Tahoe, a perfect vantage point for sunsets, and is easy to access.

The hike is an uphill climb up a paved fire road.  There aren't any signs pointing the way as you drive up to the trailhead. Take Reservoir Road at 28 and the Tahoe Biltmore Lodge, then turn right at the firehouse. Continue up the hill until you see a U.S. Forest Service road with a locked gate across it. Do not park in front of or block the gate. Park on the shoulder of Lakeview Avenue across from the gate. The walk is about 1/2 mile each way. There are many different viewpoints at the summit.
