Van Sickle Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A new connection to the Tahoe Rim Trail, the Van Sickle Trail offers features of its own, including wonderful views of Lake Tahoe and a pretty waterfall. The trail climbs stiffly for the entire way, but those who don’t mind the physical challenge will be well rewarded with some fine scenery. Van Sickle Bi-State Park has the distinction of being the only state park straddling the border of two states in the country."
