Afterwards we headed back to the hotel. Opposite the hotel is a bike hire company, we enquired about rates and what bikes they have, the prices were very reasonable. Will be back here.

Also around the hotel is a coffee shop, ice cream parlour and a general store

The start of the walk to Cascade waterfalls
IMAGE_1334.jpeg

Difficulty: Easy
Elevation: 6800′ / 6910′
Mileage (one way): 1 mile
Directions to Trailhead : Take Highway 89 north from South Lake Tahoe approximately 8 miles to the Bayview Campground across from Inspiration Point.You will find parking is located at the far end of the campground.
Trail : Look for the trailhead sign at the far end of the parking area. There is some limited parking so in the summer months you might want to get an early start to guarantee a spot. The hike is a fairly easy and at a good pace you can make it to the falls in roughly 40 minutes.. There are spots with trail rocks that you need to step up or down. This is a good easy hike if you want to get out and see some beautiful scenery, but not wear yourself out. It’s a great place to pack a lunch into so you can relax, take in the views and enjoy your break near the falls. The surrounding large rock outcroppings are impressive as trees seem to grow out of small cracks. Kids would enjoy this “not to long of a hike” with a wonderful creek and rushing falls at the end. The creek is really running hard in the late spring, early summer and slows way down in the fall.

Back at the hotel we played a game of mastermind before heading off to dinner at Cafe Bliss….well it is a good restaurant!

Good old burger!

A blissful burrito

After dinner we drove to the east of the lake to view the sunset. On holiday you do not mind driving forty minutes to see a sunset, as home we would just look out of the window, if you cannot see it, it is not a big deal!!

Views from Mount Rosa overlook

Mt. Rose may be the second tallest peak in Tahoe basin and prominent feature of the northern Lake Tahoe skyline.

Views from Mount Rosa were amazing, but we could not see the sunset. Therefore we drove back to the lake shore.
