This trail begins just off of Nevada 207 near Lake Tahoe. Proceed north off the highway on North Benjamin Drive. This paved road accesses the National Forest road after running through a residential area for approximately 2 miles. Before entering the National Forest, the paved road becomes Andrea Drive. Passing through a seasonal gate into the USFS Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, the dirt road is one lane wide, but with plenty of pullouts for passing oncoming vehicles. Proceeding north, the trail runs through a forest of mainly conifers trees. Large embedded rocks make it a bumpy ride, and large boulders flank the road on either side. Special Attractions: Views of Lake Tahoe. Network of 4WD roads to explore. Good picnic spots.

Nice trail very close to Lake Tahoe. Beautiful views, some areas too rocky get annoying but will come here again!

This set of trails is right behind my house. Easy stuff, lots of great views. Watch out for motorcycles and atv's.
