Trail Overview

This trail takes you to about 6,200 feet to the Eagle Rock! The trail up is steep and rocky and even covered in pine needles, but it is worth it! The view at the top is of Tahoe and Highway 50 below and is an awesome end to the trail. There is camping along the way, but be cognizant of the area--it is in the recent burn and there are lots of burnt, hazardous trees!

Difficulty

This trail is steep and loose! 4x4 is needed and a rear locker is recommended. There are larger and smaller rocks throughout as well as mud and ruts. When you get to the top, there is really only room for 2 rigs to turn around, so be mindful.
