“Scenic doubletrack with views of Lake Tahoe.”— Leslie Kehmeier
There are a few forks in the road along the way, with no signage. Follow the route on the Trail Run Project mobile app if you want to follow this trail specifically.
The incline is very gradual - you barely notice you're going uphill. This is a great easy run! Around mile 2 or 2.5, be sure to take a little detour off the trail to get a sweeping vista of Lake Tahoe.
Another option...From the parking area north of King's Beach you can run up FS Road #16N86 and FS Road #16N52, FS Road #16N66, FS Road #16N55 to the Tahoe Rim: Brockway to Wilderness Boundary, making a long and scenic loop.
