Incline Lake Downhill Professional Review and Guide
"Formerly in the hands of private ownership, the property around what was once Incline Lake is now public land, including a section of trail climbing from the access road from the Mt. Rose Highway to a connection with the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT ). By incorporating a section of the TRT and the old Western States Trail, the route drops over the crest and heads down to a short loop around shallow but picturesque Gray Lake. Along the way are marvelous views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding terrain. Depending on the amount of moisture that fell during the previous winter and spring, early-season hikers may have the added bonus of a fine wildflower display."
