Catch a Sunset at Cave Rock

0.8 miles 127 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Jake Young

Breathtaking sunsets and sweeping views of all of Lake Tahoe

This short hike is just off of highway 50 and provides one of the best views of Lake Tahoe. From South Lake Tahoe, head north on Highway 50 past Zephyr cove until you see Cave Rock Drive. Take this road until it dead ends and park in the small gravel lot. After following the trail out of the parking lot, you will have to briefly scramble up the rock itself. You will be rewarded with an almost unobstructed view of the entirety of Lake Tahoe.

Nice view

Great way to end the night! We lucked out and there were only about 7 other people there the night we went! Scenic and neverending views! Plus, it was a fun drive up to the trailhead.

Great Biews

Wonderful place to catch a sunset while in Tahoe. It was really busy when I was there, so come well before sunset to get a good spot!
