Description [Suggest Changes]

Forest Road #16N52 is a scenic doubletrack option above the Rise and Shine Downhill (#18E18). The route travels through huge pines and open forest with views of Lake Tahoe through the trees (starting around mile 1). There is a small pull-out area to park at the side of the road.

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.
