There is great hiking in Tahoe and as we explore the many different hikes we are always amazed at the spectacular beauty that is Lake Tahoe. Our hike to Rifle Peak was yet another great adventure. The hike is a short drive from our vacation rental. along Tahoe Blvd. to 431.
The hike offers some some steep sections to work the cardio and legs. The trail head is on Marlene street. We followed the fire road down then up to the water tower. Moving beyond the water tower you start your incline. When you break out of the trees there is a trail leading you over to the peak. Right before the peak you can head up a trail, that was not hard to miss, to take you you up behind the peak. From there you head over to the edge and take in some great views of the lake and all around.
