The north side of the Tahoe Mountain Trail has amazing lake views and a big decent. It's exposed in the sun with little shade on the lower half. Not an easy climb mid-day in the sun.

Access Info

From Panther Lane in the Gardner Mountain community, travel west on the Forest Service access for about a quarter mile and look for the trail sign on the left. This section of the Tahoe Mountain Trail ends at the high point and intersection with the Valley View Trail. Tahoe Mountain Trail continues for another 2.5 miles to Forest Mountain Road
