A sometimes-stiff climb leads away from Tahoe City to excellent views of the Lake Tahoe Basin from a volcanic knob and the Truckee River canyon from the Cinder Cone viewpoint. Along the way you’ll cross several old logging roads, evidence of the extensive logging that once took place here. The logging roads are frequently used by mountain bikers, so be prepared for possible encounters.
