A new connection to the Tahoe Rim Trail, the Van Sickle Trail offers features of its own, including wonderful views of Lake Tahoe and a pretty waterfall. The trail climbs stiffly for the entire way, but those who don’t mind the physical challenge will be well rewarded with some fine scenery. Van Sickle Bi-State Park has the distinction of being the only state park straddling the border of two states in the country.
