Logan House Creek Trail, USFS Trail #33, is a pleasant drive through the forest, which loops off Western #23: Genoa Peak Trail and eventually rejoins it about 4 miles south of the starting point. Throughout its length, the trail is one-lane wide, but passing oncoming vehicles is not difficult because plenty of pullouts are available. The gravel road proceeds to the southeast downhill through dense vegetation, including conifers interspersed with aspen stands. Frequently trees grow close to the trail. Short sections of the trail are paved along its length, likely a result how muddy the trail could become in wet weather, as well as its proximity to the Logan House Creek watershed. The trail becomes a shelf road around the 0.7-mile point. The drop off is very steep, and the road is narrow. Special Attractions: Views of Lake Tahoe. Aspen stands, which are brilliant yellow and scenic in the fall. Clearings for backcountry camping or picnicking.

Easy to Mild moderate trail in a stock 4x4. Completed in a stock Lexus GX470 with stock 30.5 inch tires and 8 inches of ground clearance. Should be doable in other stock vehicles. Possibly passable in 2wd high clearance vehicle depending on season and weather conditions/driver ability.
