We took our three year old up this trail with a stroller. A nice short hike (1/2 mile maybe). Fantastic panoramic views of Crystal Bay and Agate Bay. There were wind surfers above us. We will have to do it again.
We asked the advice of a local shopkeeper where to go in Lake Tahoe and it led us here to this gem. Drive down the main strip past Kings Beach and make a left on Biltmore rd and a right at the water tower and go straight on up until you see the gate, then hike all the way up...
Top of the Lake Tahoe lookout!! You're high above the stateline area and can see the immensity of Lake Tahoe and its beautiful colored waters from this high perch. The climb is not bad and mostly done by car going up the access road to the area.
