2.3 Miles Round Trip - 449 ft gain - Loop Trail

Rubicon Trail, D.L. Bliss State Park - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Lighthouse Trail is a 2.3 mile hike in D.L. Bliss State Park with amazing views of the lake and a great cove for an afternoon swim.

D.L. Bliss State Park is known for its camping, beaches, and enjoyable hiking trails. There is a day-use fee for entry into the park - you can pay at the ranger kiosk or a self-serve pay box. The park closes around the end of September, but you can typically park your car outside the main entrance and walk in. There are no bathrooms at this trailhead. 

The Lighthouse Trail is well marked and easy to follow for all skill levels. There are beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and a great cove to cool off on a hot Tahoe afternoon! After you enjoy exploring the lighthouse, turn right back onto the Lighthouse Trail which will eventually lead you to a parking area at Calawee Cove. Once you hit the parking area take an immediate, sharp right onto the Rubicon Trail. NOTE: If you need to use the restroom, there is a flush toilet available in this parking area.
