The Power Line Trail is a 3.5 mile out and back trail in South Lake Tahoe with beautiful views.

The Power Line Trail is best used from May to October, but is open for use year round. Be sure to stop at the first outcropping of rocks for spectacular vistas! This trail is used by mountain bikers, trail runners, and hikers. Parking can be hard at the trailhead in the winter due to snow banks.
