Emerald Bay and D. L. Bliss State Parks: Rubicon Trail Professional Review and Guide
"If stunning lakeside views across the sapphire-blue waters of Lake Tahoe are what you’re looking for, look no farther than the Rubicon Trail, which follows a 5-mile stretch of shoreline along Emerald Bay and the southwest shore of Tahoe between Vikingsholm and Calawee Cove. Thanks to the beautiful scenery and the relatively easy route, the trail is very popular with both hikers and sightseers alike, especially on summer weekends. Plan on an early start in order to find a parking place and beat the crowds, although photographers will appreciate the lighting later in the day when the sun is high or fading in the west."
