One of the quicker ways to access the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park backcountry (from Carson City). The first few miles up to the "Tanks" are really steep, but once past that point it's an easy climb. The road is closed to public vehicles but it's not uncommon to see State Parks or other permitted vehicles using it. It is very common to see hikers using this road, especially closer to Carson City; it is also popular with equestrians.
