Map: National Geographic Lake Tahoe Basin Map

Right up the street from Tahoe Mountain Sports' Kings Beach store, the Tahoe Rim Trail crosses Highway 267 providing easy access to this great North Lake Tahoe hiking trail. The trailhead is approximately 2.75 miles up from the traffic light at the intersection of highways 89 and 267 in Kings Beach, on the right side of the car. If you reach Brockway Summit, the crest of the highway, you have gone too far. You can park on the side of the road or in the pullout across from the trailhead. Either way, start up the trail and follow the switchbacks for approximately 1.2 miles until you come to a junction with a spur trail. The Tahoe Rim Trial continues straight, take the short spur trail on your left. Follow it up approximately .3 miles to a pile of boulders with an excellent view of the lake. Enjoy the view and return the way you came for an easy round-trip hike.
