On June 4 I was part of a group that visited the Rubicon Trail . The company that offers the tour in Lake Tahoe rents 4 x 4 vehicles and takes you on a 2 hour trip until you reach Miller Lake. I had been on ATVs before but was quite ignorant and unprepared about this tour. No one told... More

Most of the jeeps circle just below the actual zenith of Mt. Rubicon. But, if you just keep going up walking the last steep incline, the mountain comes to a small point with a natural bench for two at the very top looking over the entire Lake Tahoe Basin. On the East is a 3,000' cliff that decends from the... More

Took the Rubicon Trail on the west side of Lake Tahoe from DL Bliss State Park to Vikingsholm. This trail is a must if you are looking for an easy-moderately difficult trail with beautiful lake views. Bring a swimsuit and towel to enjoy one of several beaches along the way- a great way to cool off during a summer hike.

There is a 4.6 mile hike known as the Rubicon trail which runs from Emerald Bay to Bliss state park. This trail is fairly long but not extremely difficult. I saw plenty a kid between 9-12 years old. I started at... More

This was one of my favorite homes in Tahoe. I started in Emerald State Park and headed toward Rubicon. Moderate trail with stunning views along the way. I went alone and felt generally safe (in terms of wildlife), especially near the shore. I typically ran into small groups of people every 20 minutes or so. I loved heading a bit... More

Start the trail at VIkingsholm and hike along Emerald Bay to Rubicon point. The almost 5 mile hike will provide you with stunning views of Emerald Bay and the Lake Tahoe beyond.
